Tree-Of-Life

Hellooooooo my gorgeously readers!

Have you seen this trend that is sending everyone crazy?

These captivating images are breaking the hearts of every breastfeeding mummy. Many who feed alternatively have also jumped on this empowering ball that just keeps on rolling. This has gone so viral that it has actually broken the internet! Woohoo!

The Tree Of Life originally came from a diagram. It symbolises how your boobs change and adapt when you start to produce milk. When looking at the image below you can see what appears to be roots, this is where the concept of the tree growing from breast to baby has ‘stemmed’ from (yes pun intended – I’m here all week!).

Obviously I know a lot of other women who bottle feed or even tube feed have started to follow this trend. I haven’t written this to insult anyone, just wanted to share my happiness and the background to why this started up in the first place.
