Hey, Goddess. Welcome. I would like to say I am so proud of myself for breastfeeding for 10 months and to think I almost gave up…for the second time. With my first baby. I tried so hard but I just didn’t have the support and I didn’t know any breastfeeding mother’s to ask for help. The lactation consultants at the hospital that I had my baby lost their contract so they were no longer there and the nurses tried their best but it wasn’t working. I held out for two weeks and the cracked sore nipples were too damn much. And then the depression and anxiety set in and I could no longer do it.
With my second baby, my lactation consultant made me the breastfeeding goddess I am today. Now I whip out a boob without a second thought. There’s no pain and I absolutely looove breastfeeding. Let me share with you what made it possible for me to become a pro at breastfeeding.
She came into the room with bare feet, relaxed, and awesome energy and she said these six things that made me a professional breastfeeding mama:
Now here we are 10 months later, and baby Cairo can find my breasts in pitch-black darkness. There’s no pain and like I said, I love breastfeeding. It’s convenient for me and him. I can always feed him as long as I’m with him. I’m his pacifier and we share a great bond. Click here to read the other reasons why I believe breastfeeding is so much easier than formula feeding.
My advice is if you can go to a lactation consultant. They are amazing. They help you give your babies the best. They make sure your baby is getting enough milk by weighing him or her and checking for tongue-ties.
Also, your insurance may cover a consultant especially if you’re military. Hurry before “you know who” changes ish.
I’m here to help and I know how frustrating trying to breastfeed your newborn can be. Comment below if you have any questions for me.
