I’ve spent the last week talking to area moms about their breastfeeding journey. It has been a great experience to hear from so many moms and see how different the experience can be for people. I thought this picture might be a nice one to show a little part of my journey with nursing Miles.
In order to prevent “nipple confusion” (the baby thinking a bottle nipple was the preferred method as opposed to my breast) we fed Miles additional breast milk I’d pumped through a syringe after every feeding for the first week or so. It gave my husband a way to bond during those first few feedings.
I’ll talk more about our breastfeeding relationship/journey next week when the story runs.
