Real Party Inspiration: Huck's Woodland Camp Birthday

This birthday party is maybe one of my most favorite that I’ve shared to date. It was a 2nd birthday party my friend Meghan hosted for her little guy Huck and after seeing just the “sneak peek” photos on Instagram I was begging her to let me share it here at Disney Baby.

Of all of the things I have done in my life, breastfeeding has been by far one of the most challenging. It took a good couple of months and a lot of help before we got into the groove of nursing, but in the end I was able to nurse my daughter for 17 months and the beautiful bond we created through nursing was definitely worth the struggles. With Baby #2 due in a matter of months, I’ve been thinking a lot about breastfeeding again and thought I’d share some of the things that helped us get through our nursing struggles in the hopes that other mamas needing encouragement will find some here!
