You ARE Mom Enough.

What a day it is, for all breastfeeding moms.

With TIME magazine’s controversial cover sparking discussions all over the country, via social media, in mommy groups, even at the water cooler, it seems to me that breastfeeding really is, finally, having its day.

Does the cover go too far? Does it hurt the reputation of breastfeeding more than it helps? How old is too old? Should a mother cover up? It’s interesting to me how much time, effort and emotion people devote toward deciding whether what someone else does is right. It’s not just society, it’s even other moms. There’s not a single mother that I know who hasn’t felt judged by another mom because of a choice she’s made as a parent.

My issue with the cover isn’t the photo. It’s the title. “Are you Mom Enough?” My answer is yes. Yes I am mom enough. I might not adhere to all aspects of attachment parenting. I might not have breastfed as long as I could have. I might have covered up while nursing when others thought I shouldn’t, or not covered up when others thought I should. But my daughter loves me, and I love her. And she’s happy, and she’s healthy and growing and she makes me proud of the mother that I am every single day.

I am mom enough- and so are you, Mamas.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Bebe au Lait partners with The Bump for “Bring Your Baby Matinee”!

Now that my little one is two years old, I get the opportunity for “me time” every now and then. But I still vividly remember when she was an infant- between nursing and everything else that comes along with a new baby, going to a movie seemed like a luxury of the past.

That’s why I’m so excited about the new program that The Bump has going on. They’ve teamed up with AMC Theaters to offer “Bring your Baby Matinees” for some of this Spring and Summer’s top movies! Not only do you get to see that great movie you thought you’d have to wait to see on DVD, but you get to meet other new mommies while doing it! Great movies and new mommy friends are the perfect combination!

These matinees are being offered around the country in the months of May & June. If you’re looking to spend a fun day out with baby, check out the link to find dates and locations near you. Bebe au Lait is proud to partner with The Bump for the showing at the Promenade 16 with IMAX, Tuesday, May 1 @ 12:00PM in Woodland Hills, CA.
