“I love breastfeeding and have been very lucky to feed both my boys without any major challenges (aside from the biting that occurred with teething!) There have been days where I have felt stuck to the sofa with a greedy baby, or with engorged, uncomfortable breasts but when I look at my baby feeding, so happy and peaceful, there is really nothing like it. I love that I have been able to provide them both with a comfort that is unlike anything else.
I had a lot of support from my mother, who breastfed me and my brothers, and I do think that it would have been more of struggle for me without her there. I felt very unsupported and lonely in hospital when I had my first son and was lucky that he took to it like a duck to water.”
