Personal story of #breastfeeding two babies #motherstory

I breastfed my daughter for three years, did a bit of tandem nursing because reading the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing: Breastfeeding During Pregnancy and Beyond by Hilary Flower really inspired me then breastfed my son born premature for two beautiful years.

It was not an easy road at times. The reason I was able to do it? Support! Support from other women and information from trustful sources such as La Leche League.

Were you breastfed as a baby my friend my sister? Did you breastfeed? What helped you? No judgements nor guilt here. My wish is for women to empower other women by sharing their personal stories. Bless you my friend my sister.

How long to breastfeed my baby? six months of exclusive #breastfeeding

To breastfeed baby for six months at least with breast milk only, without pacifiers, as soon as the first hour after birth: these are the official WHO recommendations.

To which I would like to add my friend my sister that if there is an area where women gain so much by supporting each other, it is breastfeeding. Let’s help each other as mothers, to avoid guilt or feeling lonely when experiencing issues. La Leche League is an international organization which can make a big difference for mothers.

To breastfeed is an art, taught from one woman to another.
