My breastfeeding story.

Happy Breastfeeding Month!! 

All you mommy’s out there, you’re doing a great job!

I feel so blessed to be able to share my breastfeeding story with all you moms out there.

A little background story.

After having my first-born Adryana and being able to successfully nurse her. I wanted to do the same with my little Ashton. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to. Due to not latching on from birth and my nipples getting sore and ended up with an infection. I also blame myself for not doing more research on this; I wished I ‘d learned more about it. For some reason with my first born, the breastfeeding came easy, my milk was leaking while at the hospital and with the boys that wasn’t the case. Third time around with little Edward, I wanted to be able to successfully breastfeed him from the very beginning and do my very best.

So in effort to accomplish this, my hubby bought me my Tommee Tippee pump and go. I’ve never used one before so it was totally new to me. I ate lactating cookies, teas to keep my milk supply up.

The pump and go, was such a huge help. I was able to pump milk while baby slept {we all know they engorge while baby is not eating and its hurts so much and I didn’t want to end up with a clogged milk duct} so I pumped away. The best part of it is that I was able to take it on anywhere we went.

I felt and feel like such an accomplished mom, something I thought I could never do, and here I am beating the odds and telling you my story. I was able to breastfeed my little Edward, for a year and a few weeks. Those moments with my son, I will always cherish, and still till this day. He will put his hand between my boobs and fall asleep, not sure when that will stop. He is now 3 years old, but I will cherish those moments for they will only last for a short time. Enjoy your breastfeeding moment’s moms. They are beautiful memories.

Here to tell you, that I have successfully been breasting for the last 4 months ! Yes. Can you believe little Edward will be 4 months old on the 8th? crazy right? I feel so proud of this milestone.
