All the questions?
Are you STILL breastfeeding?
When are you going to stop?
Aren’t they too old now?
Do you not want a break?
These are just some of the questions i heard multiple times over the last 5 years of our breastfeeding journey, and I’m sure there will be many more to come when I start feeding my fourth baby.
Don’t get me wrong, I really don’t mind hearing these questions because my answer is right for me and my baby. Not right for all, but for us, it’s perfect.
I never had a plan for how long I fed my babies, I just followed them and listened to my body. I was fortunate enough to grow babies and still be inundated with milk for my others so I went with it. That’s how my feeding journey from 1 to tandem feeding to triple feeding all started.
Of course there were many times I wanted a break. There were so many times I doubted myself and questioned everything.
Feeding my 3 littles at the same time was a joy. A challenge but a joy. Exhausting but so precious.
The more I fed the more milk I made so for me the worry of having enough milk for my newborn wasn’t a worry like it was for my first born.
I’m pretty proud of our feeding journey because it hasn’t always been easy and it’s been full of challenges, judgment and a lot of middle of the night exhausted tears!
Be proud of your journey whatever that looks like. You do you mama.
This is just my journey, but your journey is perfect for you and you babe.
Whether you bottle feed, breastfeed, combi feed, it’s exactly the right thing for you. You never fail with how you feed your baby, you always celebrate that your baby is thriving because of you!!
You got this mama.
