Oh my goodness #breastfeeding can be more than just ✨✨✨magical and blissful, it can be so difficult as well. For #breastfeedingawarenessweek I've seen so many beautiful breastfeeding pictures and I love them but I felt like I had to also share this not so pretty picture... Just as I thought Jaggy and I have been doing so well, I've gotten a blocked milk duct twice in one week, same exact spot - OUCH And believe me I'm trying EVERYTHING, yes, btw that's a freaking diaper i'm holding against myself! πŸ™ˆI read online about hot compressing and that if you put hot water into a diaper the heat lasts longer than a towel, i also read about taking a hot bath, massaging and believe it or not, running a comb over the surface while pumping/ feeding ... well I've been up all night doing everything and anything, ooooof holy crap this is painful and I'm exhausted! LOVE TO ALL THE MAMAS OUT THERE ❀️I LOVE YOU ❀️ You can both love/ find bf'ing miraculousπŸ’« and dislike bf'ing all at the same time and I'm not allowing myself to feel guilty for saying that. πŸ’πŸ»working extra hard to use my #optimism skills on myself todayπŸ’ͺ🏼 #breastfeedingawareness

Mama bear with my little hungry bear. #breastfeedingawarenessweek #beautifulbond
Today is the last day of #worldbreastfeedingweek and I almost didn't post anything. Its something I feel very passionate about, yet I hesitated. Getting pregnant with Magnolia didn't come easy, but breastfeeding did. Once we got past the first few weeks of blistered nipples, cluster feeding, and toe curling pain, it went from painfully hard to beautifully easy. Giving up was never an option for me and I knew the day would come that it would be magical. One of my favorite moments with her was when we nursed in the bathtub one winter morning when the sun was shining bright. This was a day when the postpartum discomforts were easing up and nursing her was a time I cherished, as I still do. We are still currently exclusively breastfeeding and I don't see that coming to an end anytime soon.

Did you know? 
Moms can still breastfeed while sick. In fact, it's good for your baby. When you get sick, your body starts fighting the illness by making antibodies, which then get passed on to your baby. By the time you show symptoms of illness, guess what? Your baby has already been exposed to the virus or bacteria, which boosts your baby's immune system. By continuing to breastfeed, you're not just keeping your milk supply up, but you're further protecting your baby from getting sick in the future. For more information on breast feeding check out http://www.womenshealth.gov. #breastfeedingawarenessweek #breastisbest #didyouknow #hecasante #awarness #womenshealth #stayintheknow #livinglifeoutloud #livelovelaughserve #livelifewithpurpose #purposefulliving

Absolutely petrified sharing this. But for me breastfeeding has been the most incredible journey with both of my children. Incredible in the sense that it is flipping hard work, extremely debilitating at times, and I hit extreme difficulties with both children at the beginning. But at the same time it's the most beautiful and insanely special bonding experience and parenting method. For me I hate to share anything that makes anyone feel slightly inadequate or sad. So non-breastfeeding friends, please know that I am with you and only share this to support those who choose this path.  #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingawarenessweek

#breastfeedingawarenessweek I was heart broken when K didn't want to drink booby any more. I so wanted to do it forever. Lactation specialist tried everything ,so after a bad lip and tongue tie surgery she still didn't want it. This was the only option. Instead of being upset. I turned to gratitude. Thank God for Formula so that I could mix feed my precious girl. Fed is best. I miss the feeling of her drinking on me, but im grateful that we had it. Even if it was just for a little while.  Now we celebrate the good pump session and the not so great ones.  #betterlucknextime ( i hope )

I didn't realise that it was #breastfeedingawarenessweek when my Mum took this photo but I'm pleased to report that there were no dodgy looks (other than from Gus πŸ™„) as we negotiated with this cover up...hopefully it will stay that way. I love these moments and that Gus is able to picnic in the park - πŸ˜‰πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸŒΏ

I wrote in an earlier post about the beauty of advise and a community of support for a first time mom. However, one thing I had learned very quickly was that none of these voices who speak with advise and good intentions, own universal truth because they may know textbooks or their own children but nobody knows you and your baby like you do. There will always be certain advises like "never let them fall asleep while latched", "as long as you breastfeed, the nights are terrible" or "once you'll give a bottle, you can never go back." I am sure they work for some families. But here is our journey. Number 1, we've proven wrong(wrote about it last week), number 2, all our nights are so very different and my milk was always the same.  And number three...you know our journey. During my months at the office, I pumped and delivered my milk which her dad fed her with the bottle the following day. Today, we are still breastfeeding days and nights. @les_dzhongs once told me the best piece of new mama advice, and I am still thankful for it: stop reading books - read your child. πŸ™ŒπŸ½ ---

At 3 months I thought we'd never make it -how could we keep nursing after I had to stay overnight in the hospital? But we did. At 4 months I went back to work and I thought she'd decide the bottle was easier. I was wrong. At 6 months, Ro had pneumonia & we chose to make a change for our family so she wouldn't have to go to traditional daycare- and she choose to never drink from a bottle again. At a year, I was proud of how far we had come. She may always be small but she just keeps growing. Now, as we are just a few weeks shy of 2 years of #breastfeeding I rocked my little girl to sleep without the boob. She hasn't nursed since Friday morning. My heart is in a million pieces. I think of all the places we've nursed. On a boat, on a train, at the zoo, by the pool- we have had no shame. I have had love and support. I have chosen to surround myself with people who will help us along the way. My sweet girl. We made it so much farther than I thought we would. #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingweek #ourstory #weaning #breastfeedingawarenessweek

I'm generally pretty modest when it comes to nursing. I used a cover until she got too big and it got too hot, now I'll sit in the car or somewhere private. I've never been shamed for nursing, it's just personal preference. In honor of #nationalbreastfeedingweek I couldn't help but share this pic the hubby snapped of me and our girl. I realized I don't have any pictures of Deklyn nursing and that makes me sad. Both journeys with my babes have brought their own challenges, but also a great bond between us. I am so grateful for these quiet moments. I also love that I have been fortunate enough to have been able to donate over 500 ounces when I was nursing Deklyn, and again with Brinley. One day she will stop, and I will forever hold this moment in my heart ❀️. #binnygirl #iloveyouso #breastfeedingawarenessweek

Pretty sure this is the only photo I have of me breastfeeding but thought I would post one to celebrate #breastfeedingawarenessweek which can be a bit controversial for some as they feel it's a debate between bottle and breast which it shouldn't be- we breastfeed, use expressed milk and Formula so taking full advantage of what's out there haha. 
but I think as long as you have all the info/support you need, then you are making an informed decision for what works for your family. (there is no right or wrong except for the obviously wrongs- abuse, neglect ect and giving fizzy to babies- seriously who does that? πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ‘ΆπŸ€°πŸΌπŸ₯›

Today is the last day of breastfeeding awareness week. 
I have left it until the last day to post as this is a topic that will be forever controversial. Let's get one thing clear- it doesn't matter if you breastfeed or formula feed- as long as the baby is fed and happy! 
By now, most of you know the journey of my twins- with their difficult start to life, how could I deny them of breastmilk if I had it? I proudly expressed milk for 16 weeks & breastfed my boys for 13 months, & would have continued if I could've put up with the biting longer. 
Evie has been breastfed from day one, & she will be for as long as I can possibly do it. 
On the flip side- I was formula fed, & I'm completely fine. 
We live in a world that is becoming forever more challenging to mums. We get judged on absolutely everything we do, say & the parenting styles we take. In no way is formula the 'easy option' & in no way is breastfeeding 'not enough' for the baby. 
Please stop the judging & help mums thrive by raising them up -anyway possible. We are all in the same game of life- we can absolutely all be winners. ❀️ #BreastfeedingAwarenessWeek

No ha sido facil y a la vez ha sido maravilloso . Esa conexión madre hijo que te da la lactancia materna no tiene precio. Juntos hemos caminado por el mundo sin importamos lo que la gente piense. Aviones, aeropuertos, centros comerciales.. siempre estoy dispuesta a entregarte mi amor donde sea. Te amo #LucaStefano #babyStefano #8months #breastfeedingawarenessweek (P.D. Siempre digo este mes es el último y tus ojos me hacen cambiar de opinión) 😍😘

As #breastfeedingawarenessweek comes to an end. I've finally found the courage to post this. 
I was talking with a friend the other day about how much meaning was in this photo and how much I loved it, but was afraid to post it publicly for everyone to see. I was worried about what people would think, especially the wide group of friends, coworkers, and family I have on social media.

She gently reminded me that my reason for not posting was the exact reason I SHOULD post it. (Thank you @ashhhhmoney 😘) & she is 100% right!!! There is nothing in this photo that I should be ashamed of. This is normal. 
This was taken on Olivia's 1st BIRTHDAY! 1 year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days! *Sigh* holy cow I could not believe we made it. Through the cracked nipples, the bleeding and blisters, the latch issues, the pumping struggles, waking multiples times at night, clogged ducts, crying over spilt milk and finding the freezer left open, the constant worry about producing enough and eating the right things - I would do it all over again for her. 
To all the Mama's out there - this is for you!! #breastfeedingawarenessweek

Sunday evening and #breastfeedingawarenessweek got me looking through my old photos. This was last September. We are the queens of our own feeding rhythm, there is no situation that would make us feel uncomfortable any more. I was lucky enough to have enough milk - not too much either. There was never a problem, no infection, no sore, no cracked nipple or anything else. We would never have to worry about an upset young family member surprising us with hunger. We are carefree when going out because all she needs is right there - whenever she'll ask for it. That said, I am absolutely pro breastfeeding BUT: I don't think motherhood which starts with a bottle is any less loving, caring and perfect in its bond for your child. We are all mothers.

9 months old! How is that possible?! Everyday I am so thankful for this little lady & the beautiful family I have. πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€ I have been #exclusivelybreastfeeding for 9 months. It hasn't been easy, it is hard work & took a long time to establish & know what I was doing! The most natural thing in the world does not come naturally to everyone! And even though I'm a 2nd time mummy, I didn't breastfeed my 1st, so it was all very new to me!! Without the support of some special people I would have given up for sure! @emma_jayne1982 my best friend (and a midwife) was brilliant, and was quite happy to take a look at my baps and the latch and give me some pointers, her mum, whose also a midwife, was also brilliant and sat with me whilst I fed, showing me different positions to try. πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› Most of all, Gary has been amazing!! For the first 2 weeks he slept on the sofa, he let Ellie and me establish breastfeeding and then would let me sleep in the day whilst Ellie slept and he did EVERYTHING! I pretty much was in bed for 2 weeks just getting to grips with breastfeeding, and sleepless nights, while he provided me with baths, toast, tea & daytime naps! 
He isn't on social media, so won't see this (unless I show him), he is one in a million, and has made the last 9 months so enjoyable, and I'm so lucky to have him. He's a brilliant dad, brilliant stepdad and an amazing partner! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ I have only 35 days left of maternity leave and then I am back to work, that will be a new challenge for us as a family, going back to shifts but I know he'll be just as supportive with that too!

As #breastfeedingawarenessweek comes to an end. I've finally found the courage to post this. 
I was talking with a friend the other day about how much meaning was in this photo and how much I loved it, but was afraid to post it publicly for everyone to see. I was worried about what people would think, especially the wide group of friends, coworkers, and family I have on social media.

She gently reminded me that my reason for not posting was the exact reason I SHOULD post it. (Thank you @ashhhhmoney 😘) & she is 100% right!!! There is nothing in this photo that I should be ashamed of. This is normal. 
This was taken on Olivia's 1st BIRTHDAY! 1 year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days! *Sigh* holy cow I could not believe we made it. Through the cracked nipples, the bleeding and blisters, the latch issues, the pumping struggles, waking multiples times at night, clogged ducts, crying over spilt milk and finding the freezer left open, the constant worry about producing enough and eating the right things - I would do it all over again for her. 
To all the Mama's out there - this is for you!! #breastfeedingawarenessweek

Far from the easiest thing to do publicly. Shout out to all the mamas camped out in their back seats, on public toilet seats or pulling up a piece of curbside to feed their babes ✌️. It ain't always easy or convenient, but hey maybe if we #normalizeit there will be Ikea/Nordstrom quality facilities in more public places :). #breastfeedingawarenessmonth #breastfeeding

Iced espresso & baby snuggles.

So blessed every day to be able to nourish my little man with milk my body has created. It amazes me that all his little rolls and 15.7 lbs are from me. The bond my son and I have from nursing is so unreal and my heart bursts with love every time he looks up at me. #breastfeeding #breastfeedingawarenessweek #normalizebreastfeeding

In honor of World Breastfeeding Week I wanted to share a little story. I was 27 when I had Allie, I was young and still trying to figure out this whole baby thing. The hubby and I decided to go out to dinner just to get out of the house. We went to Cheesecake Factory. It was right around feeding time and I remember walking in, turning to my husband and saying, "can I feed the baby in a restaurant?" I'll never forget that feeling of just not knowing. Of course we sat down and I fed the baby anyway, but even for that split second... considering the fact that I wasn't sure if I could. I hope no other mother ever feels that way. Feed that baby when it's hungry for gawd sake πŸ˜‚. #momlife #breastfeeding  #breastfeedingawareness #worldbreastfeedingweek

Breastfeeding awareness week πŸ’™"while breastfeeding may not seem the best choice for every parent it's the best choice for every baby!" "Never be afraid to nurse in public. If people don't see it it will never become normalized."πŸ‘ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ #breastfeedingawarenessweek #boobiemilk #thebestmilk #breastisbestforus #breastfedbaby #breastfeeding #normailzebreastfeeding #instadaily #instagood
Si bayi memang 'nenen' ke Bunda. Tapi, tugas menyukseskan proses menyusui bukan hanya ada di bahu sang ibu lho. Setuju?

August is National Breastfeeding month πŸ€—πŸ€—I've been breastfeeding every day for 7+ months.  I've experienced:

People who didn't want to feed her because breast milk was in the bottle.

When someone ASKED to babysit her, she asked me if there was any way I could bring formula instead. 
I've been told that I really wasn't breastfeeding because I pumped it.

I've been criticized for putting her on my breast instead of pumping.

I am asked DAILY when will I stop breastfeeding because it obviously affects them.

I've been told that the only reason she loves me so much is because I'm her "supply". God forbid she loves me because I spend time with her and show her love and affection.

A group of women told me that my breasts are for my husband, not for my baby. (Then why did God put milk in them instead of beer? πŸ€”) I get side eyes from people when they find out that I pump at work and in the car.

A woman told me that breastfeeding is the stupidest thing she's ever heard of. Why breastfeed when there's an abundant supply of formula? 
I've also experienced:

A husband who supports my decision to breastfeed, even though I know feeding her formula would make both of our lives easier.

A baby who has NEVER been sick. She was born in the winter month of December, and she has never even had a runny nose.

A baby who has never had a diaper rash.

A bond with the happiest baby I've ever met.

A baby who went from wearing preemie clothes to wearing 3-6 month clothing in 2 months.

Rapid return to pre-baby weight after giving birth. 
Support and encouragement from friends, family, and strangers to keep going.
