It’s 3am, and I’m sitting in my son’s nursery. It’s quiet, with only the small amount of light coming from a little owl lamp on his bookshelf. My husband is asleep, my daughter is asleep. It feels like it’s just us two. I’m tired (exhausted), but I love this. I love cuddling my little one and helping him fall back to sleep again. I love holding him in his sleep, and I love knowing that I can give him everything he needs in this moment. This is what breastfeeding looks like to us, right now.
But, breastfeeding didn’t always look like that for me. It can be hard. It can be painful. It can be stressful. Sometimes I accidentally flash an entire room of people without trying. Sometimes, I don’t care because I need my baby to eat. Sometimes it feels as though I am all alone in this.
And that is why Supported In Breastfeeding is such an important book for breastfeeding moms. If you’re breastfeeding, or planning on breastfeeding your baby, you should read this book. Because none of us are really alone in this. We’re all going through very similar things with breastfeeding. Whether your baby takes to it immediately, or you struggle with it.. we’re all in this together. Supported In Breastfeeding has 20+ stories from real life moms who have been right where you are, and that was so encouraging to read.
As I read through this book, I could relate to so many of the different stories. I found myself nodding along with all the struggles and triumphs that these breastfeeding mamas described. I felt so connected to the women in the book, even though I’ve never met any of them. Their stories are so similar to my story. I would recommend this book to any woman who wants to breastfeed their baby <3
