    Default Breastfeeding - beautiful letter from newborn to mum

    I just came across this beautiful letter written from a newborn to its mum, it is all about the first few days of breastfeeding and what to expect, but it's written so delicately so I thought I'd share :-)

    Thank you so much for sharing this. My beautiful baby boy is a week old now and I have been finding breast feeding trying at times. But this has made me feel better about it.

    So beautifully written!

    Default Breastfeeding - beautiful letter from newborn to mum

    That is really sweet and I read that before I had my DD. I read all the books and saw all of the videos and everything makes it seem like BF will happen straight away, the baby latches on easily and it is joyful to bond with your baby as soon as its born and every time you feed him/her

    Unfortunately it wasn't that simple for me, it wasn't at all pleasant for me and I had PND from weeks of torment trying so hard for her to latch on and feed well and it never happened.

    I don't mean to sound too negative about it all, but I just wish when I was pregnant, that someone would have told me its possible BF won't necessarily be easy, comfortable, effective, or come naturally for some babies and that it could be weeks and months of struggling.

    So I'm being that someone to pregnant ladies who may not understand this, just to prepare yourself that it can be an extremely difficult and taxing thing and it's not the end of the world if you try and it doesn't work for you and your bub.

    PS I did manage to BF for 13 weeks, I did my best!

    Same for me unfortunately and I only got to 4 weeks.

    I do think its a lovely article though and worth reading and sharing. I hope it works for me next time!
