What I want I’d have informed 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 understanding all of you great people and attending to dwell out my ardour with my wonderful enterprise companion Judy.

I seem giddy and joyous right here, however I used to be additionally so anxious about breastfeeding. I put SO a lot strain 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 an amazing breastfeeding expertise. Not at all times straightforward, however nice. I want I had informed myself that it doesn’t matter what, it will all be okay.

Once 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 stable meals. I’ve been lucky to have the knowledge of Judy and what would ultimately turn out to be our on-line toddler and toddler programs to assist me navigate any challenges that got here up. I do know I’m fortunate.

I do know from the purchasers I see each day that not all feeding journeys go this manner, that mine could appear particularly straightforward. Judy and I work with feeding and diet challenges each day – we take heed to and luxury candy mamas as they cry, mourning the lack of an expertise they so want they’d. We have a good time even the tiniest of successes and supply our skilled and mama-to-mama assist when issues get powerful. We like assembly such great, various, passionate households and witnessing new mother and father evolve into the fiercely protecting folks they by no means knew they had been.

Feeding and diet are SO emotional, so private. Everybody does it in a different 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!
