Erykah Badu, whose well known songs On & On and You Got Me , is a Grammy Award singer, but did you also know she is a homebirthing, extended nursing mama? She breastfed her son for two years straight, even while being a working mama recording more beautiful music. And just like I found with my own babies, breastfeeding lead to growing an independent child, despite how we’re often told the opposite will happen. For a quote for Blacktating, Erykah said, “He’s very independent as a result of it. I thought it was going to be the opposite. I was very worried that he was going to be attached since we were together every day, but I guess it made him feel comfortable: ‘I know she’s around. She’ll be there.’
And you’re so right mama – he does know you’re there. And we at Granola Babies love how she’s also not afraid of nursing in public. And in a music video viewed by millions. No nursing cover here – just natural loving breastfeeding while singing her song. Love that!
In the first 2 minutes of the music video for in-studio performance recording of Fall in Love (Your Funeral), you’ll see her breastfeeding ever so naturally.
