It’s World Breastfeeding Week! Last year, I shared my breastfeeding story with Autumn, and a lot has changed since then. So, in honour of it being World Breastfeeding Week, I thought I’d share part two of the story.
After the initial difficulty of breastfeeding Autumn, we went on to nurse for almost 18 months. I always said that I wanted to keep nursing until Autumn decided it was time to stop. She stopped pretty slowly, but it was very clear she was done! I am very happy that we went as long as we did.
Leading up to when Aiden was born, I got kind of nervous that things would go the same way they did with Autumn. It was a huge relief when he took to breastfeeding right away! He latched on at the birth centre a little while after he was born, and knew exactly what to do.
Nursing Aiden has been so great! There hasn’t been any pain or anything and I’m so glad we haven’t had any issues with it. This is the breastfeeding experience that I had been hoping for! He’s growing like a little weed and I just love the time spent and the cuddles I get when I’m feeding him.
I’m also loving how I feel so much more confident this time! When I was breastfeeding Autumn, I would get nervous about feeding her in front of other people but now it’s like its not a big deal. I just do it! I really love that I’m more confident.
Looking forward to seeing how long he’ll want to nurse for!
Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
