Today’s guest post comes from Eszter over atkukolina. Eszter is mom to a 7 month old little boy. She has lived in 5 different countries and she is currently living in a 5 star hotel that her husband manages on an island in Thailand. Her post covers how great she thinks breastfeeding is, and shows what a positive experience she has had with it. Enjoy 🙂
Love, hugs and more to come later!
Like getting pregnant ( we had IUI 10 times).
I heard and read that breastfeeding has its challenges but in my opinion its important to remember one thing:
You can make it work if you do not give up.
I needed lots of help in the hospital with the positions but I had a mouth I asked for help as many time as I needed it.
At home we had the crib next to our bed. We switched to co-sleeping only later on. If I could turn back time I would start co-sleeping immediately. It makes nursing much easier.
Plugged milk ducts happened to me three times at least. Massage, warm and wet towels help a lot. And patience. It always got better in a few days. It did make breastfeeding less nice but there are things you do not stop doing just because obstacles turn up.
Our son had to fly on an airplane 7 times. Breastfeeding does its wonders at times like these as well.
I have a happy, healthy 7 months old son. He is being exclusively breastfed. Without doubt, breastfeeding is one of my best decisions I have made. I love it!
