We recently sat down with the lovely Eliza from Twingenuity. She has been an inspiration, giving birth to the lovely Charlie and then finding out she was pregnant with twins just 6 weeks later. She is now juggling three kids under two and we asked her how she does it!
Lisa asks: “I understand that I will have my hands full with both a toddler and a baby! What are some ideas for feeding a newborn with a toddler?”
It’s been great to talk with Lisa about her breastfeeding journey. It can understandably be common for women to feel apprehensive if they had a previous difficult breastfeeding experience.
One thing to bear in mind is that each birth and each baby you have is very different and doesn’t mean this journey will follow the experience you had with your last baby.
Under five weeks to go and my body is definitely telling me it’s nearing time for baby number two’s arrival. My hips are giving up and the bust area surely can’t get any bigger… oh wait, the milk is still yet to arrive.
Over the next few months we will be following a mum’s journey through pregnancy and breastfeeding.
We will follow her queries, concerns and excitement and provide insight through articles and videos from our educator and qualified midwife and lactation consultant, Katie.
It’s a commonly heard question, “should I give my baby some formula milk?” Many mums are faced with this challenge, but why do we doubt our milk supply so often?
Many women come home from the hospital wanting to exclusively breastfeed and do what is best for their baby. They eagerly start breastfeeding and getting used to the routine. Many breastfeeding mums have been looking forward to this experience and want to continue breastfeeding exclusively as long as possible.
Breastfeeding is one of the most natural acts in the world, but it still takes some practice and getting used to. One of the learning experiences for mums and babies is discovering the best breastfeeding positions that work for them both.
