So often I hear mums say, “My baby wants to breastfeed all evening – I’m worried about my milk supply.”
There's a lot of conflicting advice about when to stop night time breastfeeds. Pinky McKay explains why extending these nocturnal feeds is a good idea - for both mum and baby.
The baby had been brought to hospital by social workers.
I've stopped looking away.
It was a relief that my first public breastfeeding experience wasn't like all those horror stories.
This year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit show featured something a little different: a model breastfeeding her baby as she walked down the runway.
"It takes a village to breastfeed a baby".
"All over pop culture you hear that when you breastfeed you lose weight and you're so thin. It wasn't happening for me."
"If you have this baby monitor do yourself a favour and unplug it and throw it away RIGHT now," the horrified mum wrote.
I use my phone nearly every feed.
"I felt trapped. I felt ashamed."
It's supposed to be natural, so why is it sometimes so difficult?
I could feel myself emotionally unravelling while watching her struggle.
