Lissa James

Hi! I'm Lissa James, currently living and loving in Seattle, Wa. I blog mainly about my experience breastfeeding, as well as attachment parenting, and postpartum anxiety and depression. I hope to encourage and empower other women through my writing. I am a Potterhead/The X-Files junkie, and I love to read and paint. I am currently writing and illustrating a children's book about breastfeeding! Find me on instagram @bumblebeelullabies and find my mama mermaid art @mermamame!
