I have been reading a lot of your comments requesting a video about my breastfeeding journey. You guys have asked how I got to stock up on so much milk- and in today’s video, we’re gonna be talking all about that. Obviously, I’m no expert, and each momma’s journey is different. But I hope my own experience can somehow help you if you’re struggling with your own supply in any way.
In the nine months of my pregnancy and going through labor, I can honestly say that breastfeeding is the hardest part- especially in the beginning! The first two weeks were the absolute worst and the most painful thing to happen to my nipples EVER! Scott direct latching every 30 minutes to an hour made the girls really sore that even a whiff of air would make me wince in pain. It hurt it so much! 😭 It honestly took me about a month to adjust, and now, it’s one of my favorite things to do EVER. So if you’re a new mom and still suffering, I know it seems like there’s no end in sight- but trust me, it does get better.
Without further ado, here are my personal tips on getting your milk supply up, what I went through with Scottie, and how I am able to store about 1000ml of milk a day- after feeding him! For your easy viewing, I will list all the helpful timestamps of the topics I mentioned! Enjoy and Happy Sunday!
