Breastfeeding – that natural and simple process that just happens so easily when you have a baby – ha! Well, that may be the case for some, but not for me.
I so desperately want to nurse my baby and honestly did not think I’d struggle with it as bad as I did.
I remember sitting with a midwife squeezing the life out of my boob trying to get something to come out while my newborn screamed the house down (I really HATED sharing a room at that point and wished we had a private room, just for a moment).
I begged and begged for some formula so I could give my baby a bottle just to calm him down but they were having none of it.
So persist I did. And eventually, breastfeeding became simpler.
The second time around I knew what I was in for, so I searched far and wide for the best lactation recipes to make nursing easier and stay within our budget.
