  • Just as I was about to post this, I came on insta and saw a post by @thepregnancyfoodcompany  regarding @littlepeachlondon and her decision to stop posting her breastfeeding pictures due to disgsuting abuse she received online. I think it's incredibly sad when people can happily watch nature programmes of animals feeding their young but humans it's deemed obscene.
.
The world health organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and also notes that feeding up until 2 years of age and beyond is also beneficial for babies. For some bizarre reason,  many people in western society find it strange to see a woman feeding a baby that is older than say 3 or 4 months old. .
I personally have had the 'arent you going to stop soon' comments from people when nursing my last baby and my newest one who isn't even 9 months old yet! Just because a baby has teeth, does not mean they should have to stop being  breastfed. Just because the start walking at a year old does not mean they should have to stop breastfeeding. Just because they start saying 'mama' and 'dada' does  not mean they have to stop breastfeeding.
Noone should be pressured into breastfeeding to begin with and noone should be pressured into stopping.

🤱Something that comes up time and time again when I am speaking with new parents is their frustration with the time they had in the hospital. They feel confused by advice given about breastfeeding varying so much between staff members. They say that on one shift they will get told one thing and then on the next shift get told something completely different. When you are trying to learn a new skill you can imagine how frustrating this must be.⁠
🧠I have been thinking about this a lot. After years of being frustrated by it myself and thinking that it was because the hospital staff weren’t very educated on how to support a mother to breastfeed, I have come to some other conclusions. ⁠
I think inconsistent information happens for three reasons - ⁠
⁠
1️⃣Because of the varying levels of education staff have on breastfeeding. The WBTI Assessment of Australia in 2018 showed that of all the health professions, midwives are the only ones that have breastfeeding formally in their curriculum but the catch is that it varies from university to university. And this doesn’t help those that have been qualified for many years. ⁠
2️⃣Babies change rapidly in those first few days. Every shift your baby is different. Along with that, you are different. The process of your milk coming in is a perfect example - they way the milk changes from colostrum to mature milk, the way your breasts change from feeling normal to feeling very full and sometimes rock hard (or not), and the way the baby changes as they transition to life outside the womb.⁠
3️⃣There is no ONE right way to breastfeed. There is no rule book. ⁠
So when you take all of those things into account it is no surprise you will be told many different things. ⁠

  • I really wanted to take a minute and do a #breastfeeding appreciation (maybe a bit of a pat myself on the back) post.  Rylan’s 1st birthday also marked one year in our breastfeeding journey and if I’m being completely honest, for the first time in all of the years I have nursed (6 between the girls) I didn’t think I would make it.  This was so devastating to me as it’s always been a huge passion of mine.  My dream is to one day be a lactation consultant and I have always tried to be a support to friends and moms who have struggled in their journeys.  When my supply tanked around four months after I joined my husband in a fitness challenge and on the tail end of a terrible stomach virus, I struggled so much.  There were so many days and nights of tears and prayers, drinking teas, taking supplements, hydrating, crying begging and feeling like a complete failure.  And let me say I have never viewed a mother who doesn’t nurse their child as such, but for myself, this is how much it meant to me.  Now here I am, one year later and my supply is better than it has been, I no longer have to supplement, and we are going strong 💪🏼. I’m so thankful for the bonding I have had with my son through nursing and I know as my he begins to take in more solids and grow, there will be so many unknowns, and any day could be the last... My hope is to make it to two years, but even if I don’t I am thankful for this time I have had to provide him cuddles and nourishment ❤️ I really wanted to take a minute and do a #breastfeeding appreciation (maybe a bit of a pat myself on the back) post.

  • Last night at the State Fair of Texas I walked into the food court to find a place to breastfeed my 10 month old baby. The tables were completely FULL, so I asked a man @mattressfirm if I could sit in one of their chairs to breastfeed for a few minutes. He quickly said no because they normally have lines for people to try them out. There was no line at 8:22 pm (they closed at 9 pm). I walked out, but I was bothered by his answer and my baby was crying, so I decided to ask another employee. I told him I asked his co-worker if I could sit down and breastfeed my baby, but he said no due to them getting lines. He agreed with his co-worker and said no for the same reason, but he was kind enough to tell me that there are chairs outside. It was packed outside as well. I counted 30 chairs and 4 of them were being used at the time. I wasn't allowed to use ONE FREE chair. All I wanted to do is feed my baby before heading home. I would have loved to relax and try out one of those fancy massage chairs, but my baby was hungry. Maybe I would have been allowed to use a chair if I said was going to buy one? I don't understand. I'm at a loss for words. So I had no choice but to breastfeed on the floor. #normalizebreastfeeding #freethefeed
