What I want I’d have instructed myself.

That is me, age 29, with my husband and first child Hannah. I didn’t cry when she was born…I cried when she latched for the primary time, which occurred moments earlier than this picture was captured. This picture, taken by Doula Dianne, means a lot to me now as a result of it was the start of my feeding journey. It’s additionally the true begin down a path that led me to figuring out all of you fantastic people and attending to reside out my ardour with my wonderful enterprise accomplice Judy.

I seem giddy and joyous right here, however I used to be additionally so anxious about breastfeeding. I put SO a lot stress on myself to breastfeed, and luckily after a TON of ache and latch points (we later realized she had a extreme tongue and lip tie), I had a fantastic breastfeeding expertise. Not all the time straightforward, however nice. I want I had instructed myself that it doesn’t matter what, it will all be okay.

After we began baby-led weaning at 6 months on the nostril, my eldest took to it like a champ. My second daughter was much more of a foodie and was demanding to participate of each meal we ate as soon as she began with strong meals. I’ve been lucky to have the knowledge of Judy and what would finally develop into our on-line toddler and toddler programs to assist me navigate any challenges that got here up.

I do know from the purchasers I see daily that not all feeding journeys go this fashion, that mine could appear particularly straightforward. Judy and I work with feeding and vitamin challenges daily – we take heed to and luxury candy mamas as they cry, mourning the lack of an expertise they so want that they had. We rejoice even the tiniest of successes and provide our skilled and mama-to-mama assist when issues get robust. We love assembly such fantastic, various, passionate households and witnessing new dad and mom evolve into the fiercely protecting individuals they by no means knew they have been.

Feeding and vitamin are SO emotional, so private. Everybody does it in another way, as a result of everyone seems to be totally different. We’re grateful to be a part of your journey. Thanks for being a part of ours too!
