Mum turns her breastfeeding journey into magical illstrations

These are amazing!

April 21 2017

Our cuddle nursing is becoming more action packed! 😂👶💕 I still have all the squishy soft pudginess from the 9month of production and stress eating that followed 😆 But my baby doesn't mind, and my husband doesn't mind (so he says 🤔) This morning I want to send out little thanks to my postpartum bffs like my @Spanx by @sarablakely that works tirelessly to hold my jiggles together, and super cute pumping/nursing bra from @the_dairyfairy makes my boobs feel like Beyonce 💖 and soft baby PJ by @burtsbeesus that my baby loves to roll in.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #nursingmom #nursingtoddler #postpartum #postpartumclothes #brelfie #normalizebreastfeeding #freethenipple #motherhood #mumlife #mommyblogger #parenthood #momcomic #illustrator #illustration #pumpingmama #pencildrawing #socal #momisdrawing #아기스타그램 #instababy #육아일기 #육아소통 #momlife #mommyandme #instamama #instamom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #parentinglikewhoa #aheadofthecurve #stopcensoringmotherhood

Since giving birth 18-months ago, Joy Hwang takes pleasure in drawing her experiences.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Joy reveals it hasn't been an easy road: “I remember times when my baby and I both cried all night because I couldn’t produce enough milk.”

“I wanted to breastfeed because I wanted to give my baby the most natural food designed just for her from my own body. Then I found out my milk was set back from traumatic birth, and I was starving her. I was so grateful that formula was there for my baby, and it had my back.”

Like many stay at home mums, the experience can feel isolating at times, Joy said drawing has helped her build her own “tribe”.

“Drawing her and sharing the art online has helped me find my tribe at my fingertips during the stretch of days when I feel isolated from the world I knew before my baby was born. Even on days filled with my amateur mom struggles, I had more inspiration to draw about them.”

This drawing is my love song to those who faithfully pump through the night to bring love and nourishment to little humans. You are amazing!!! . . . . . . . . . #brelfie #normalizebreastfeeding #nursingmom #freethenipple #motherhood #mumlife #mommyblogger #parenthood #longestshortesttime #illustrator #illustration #pumpingmama #pencildrawing #socal #momisdrawing #breastpumpimgart #breastfeedingart #instababy #육아일기 #육아소통 # #mommyandme #instamama #instamom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #exclusivelypumping #parentinglikewhoa

This is Julia! She's an awesome mama with a little baby girl. She sent me a hello, and asked about my project from 3000 miles away while she was pumping at work! Actually most of our conversation happened during her pump. I was so enamored by her baby love and work ethic, so I sent this hello back! I'm so happy to hear that her baby will look back on this drawing one day and feel how much she is loved. 💛 All you pump at work mamas out there, keep up your great work! 💗👶💗 . . . . . . . . . . #workingmom #pumpingmom #pumpatwork #fitpregnancy #brelfie #lifewithbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #nursingmom #freethenipple #motherhood #mumlife #momcode #mommyblogger #parenthood #longestshortesttime #illustration #pumpingmama #sketchvideo #momisdrawing #breastpumpingart #breastfeedingart #육아일기 #육아소통 #instamama #instamom #ocmom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #carveouttimeforart

This drawing is for my fellow mamas who power through the day at work with love and commitment for their families. Even that's being away from your new baby for hours stretch throughout the day / sometimes for days and weeks, but we never stop thinking about them. Not even for a moment. Because our hearts are connected to our babies, and our bodies reminds us to bring love food home. Thinking about you amazing mamas. Sending you so much love. 💗💗💗 . . . . . . . . . #workingmom #pumpingmom #exclusivelypumping #ebf #brelfie #lifewithbaby #normalizebreastfeeding #nursingmom #freethenipple #motherhood #mumlife #momcode #mommyblogger #parenthood #longestshortesttime #illustration #pumpingmama #sketchvideo #momisdrawing #breastpumpingart #breastfeedingart #육아일기 #육아소통 #instamama #instamom #ocmom #motherhoodthroughinstagram #carveouttimeforart #stopcensoringmotherhood
