Charlotte’s breastfeeding story –
I all the time knew I needed to attempt to breastfeed, however I did not wish to put an excessive amount of stress on myself as I do know lots of mums wrestle with this for all completely different causes.
As quickly as Sophia was born our midwife helped her latch which wasn’t straightforward as I had simply had an emergency caesarean and the anesthetic meant I used to be shaking uncontrollably (my husband was very supportive and advised me to not fear concerning the shakes as she’s now having her first milkshake). 😂 This did not cease her latching completely and selecting up this talent with ease.
The primary 3-4 weeks consisted of me having to crunch my toes and take an enormous deep breath on every preliminary latch. There was bleeding, itching, milk spraying EVERYWHERE and using A LOT of muslins which made it laborious to wish to proceed, however as quickly as we obtained handed that stage it turned simpler and simpler and she or he is certainly happier on the boob now and seeing her smile mid-feed simply proves her superb growth and our particular bond. ❤️
Plus along with her being an incredible feeder it means we don’t have to fret about packing extra feeding gear. It’s laborious sufficient to go away the home on time with all her stuff.
I additionally had lots of people questioning how I’d really feel when breastfeeding in public and to be sincere I by no means noticed this as a difficulty, if my child wants feeding then that’s what she is going to get, if somebody does not like seeing it then I am not sorry as that’s their difficulty not ours and it should not be frowned or questioned lately.
All I can say to you is to attempt to take every day as they arrive and do not stress about different peoples feedback. It’s you and your infants journey and also you management that your manner.
