Big can be Beautiful (but also challenging)

Larger ladies can have a harder time with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Despite intending to breastfeed, women with higher body mass index (BMI) wean earlier as a group. There seem to be more obstacles to breastfeeding for these mamas. To help them, here’s a website devoted to plus-size women and their babies: Kmom’s Plus-Size Pregnancy Index. The section on breastfeeding has some good information. I wish there were more pictures along with the articles because it would do even more to promote a healthy, helpful, respectful attitude towards larger women. (But I understand how hard it is to get good pictures! As a non-photographer myself, I have a hard time finding photos for my blog.)
