View Full Version : Did you breastfeed?
Hi Young Mums
I'm a 25 year old mum of Hamish 11mths and am currently researching a book on breastfeeding. I'm looking for young mums to contribute there stories on whether or not they breastfed and how it all went. If you'd like more information, please contact me on Pink.Ink077@gmail.com
i am a 19 year old mum of 2!
i was 15 when i had my son and only breastfed for a few weeks! i was so engorged, my nipples were bleeding from bad attachment (my breasts were too big for his little mouth). i also have a very fast letdown which made him choke everytime he tried to feed!
the midwives said i should have had twins because of the amount of milk i was producing!
i still feel guilty about not feeding him longer!
i had my daughter 10 months ago and i succeeded with breastfeeding this time around...YIPPEE!! she still loves her titty! i will miss feeding her when she is too big for it!
i still had the same problems as with my son but this time i just gritted my teeth and bared it!
i also used nipple shields and Marcalan (lanolin ointment) to help treat the cracks! it was a lifesaver!!! i wish i had had these with my son!
well i hope this helps!
