A US mum is hoping to normalise extended breastfeeding.
Photographer Natalie McCain made a name for herself with her Honest Body Project, now the mum is back with another photo series titled: Breastfeeding Our Toddlers: A Full Term Nursing Series.
Speaking to Popsugar, McCain, who nursed both of her children until they were toddlers, said: "I decided to create a new series on extended nursing so that I could help normalise it even more.
“The more images that are put out there, the more stories, the more it will become the norm. Normalising breastfeeding is extremely important, especially for future generations."
For McCain, she wants to change the way people talk about nursing; she wasn’t "still" nursing her toddlers, she was “just nursing” them.
McCain added: "When I put a call out for the breastfeeding series, I had many women contact me wanting to be a part ofNormalisingizing breastfeeding is a huge passion of many women in my community. I am lucky to have such amazing women who want to participate!"
Some of the images have been shared on the Honest Body Project Instagram page.
