Gisele Bündchen makes a post on Instagram about how much she loved breastfeeding and it is so amazing.
In honor of Breastfeeding Month, Gisele Bündchen shares how much she has loved breastfeeding her two beautiful children whom she shares with Tom Brady. She shares how she has been able to share a "special" bond with her children by feeding them with her body and it has been such an amazing experience. Bündchen opened up on Instagram how beautiful the experience is but it certainly doesn't come without its challenges. Even though breastfeeding has its challenges she wouldn't have changed it for the world.
Bündchen goes on in her post to praise all of the mothers for all that they do for their children. She praises all the mothers who breastfeed and how amazing they are to do that for their children. Gisele then shares a "throwback" photo of her and her daughter. Her daughter is now 6 but she wanted to share a photo of her breastfeeding her as a baby. Gisele explains that the most special times that she has had with her children was being able to breastfeed them and have that moment with them. She said that the special look she gets when they are nursing is a feeling of connection that isn't like anything else that she has ever experienced.

One of the most special moments I’ve shared with my kids was while breastfeeding. That special look you get, that feeling of connection is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I love how #breastfeedingawarenessmonth shines a light on the importance of breastfeeding. Yes, in the beginning it can be difficult, it can hurt (the cracks, bleeding, engorgement), but no matter how challenging, I would not change that experience for anything in this world. I feel blessed that I was able to nourish them in this way. Congratulations to all mamas out there for the effort that we put in, the ones who breastfeed, and those who could not and have had heartbreaking moments trying to. I celebrate all of you! 💕 🤱🏼💗 Um dos momentos mais especiais que compartilhei com meus filhos foi durante a amamentação. O olhar especial que você recebe e o sentimento de conexão são diferentes de tudo que já experimentei. Adorei a iniciativa do #mêsdaconscientizaçãosobreaamamentação, pois esclarece a importância da amamentação. Sim, no começo pode ser difícil, pode doer (as rachaduras, o sangramento, o ingurgitamento), mas não importa o quão desafiador, não mudaria essa experiência por nada neste mundo. Me sinto abençoada por poder nutri-los dessa maneira. Parabéns a todas as mães pelo esforço que colocam , não só aquelas que amamentaram, mas também aquelas que não puderam e tiveram momentos dolorosos tentando. Eu celebro todas vocês!
She did admit that it was very important for her to say that it was very difficult at first. She had to experience all of the soreness, the pain, and the cracked nipples. She even felt the engorgement and being really uncomfortable but she still loved breastfeeding. She thinks that it is a beautiful thing and she is grateful that there is a month dedicated to honoring breastfeeding mothers.
Bündchen admits that a lot of women do not get the chance to breastfeed and so she feels very blessed that she was able to nourish them in that way. She is very grateful that she was able to breastfeed her children and experience such an amazing connection with her two children that many women don't get the chance to be part of in their mothering journey. She said that breastfeeding really is amazing and that her children actually never got sick while breastfeeding and she knows it's because breastmilk is so amazing for their health.
