  1. Ah I’m so pleased you guest blogged for My Petit Canard! As soon as I saw that she was looking for bloggers for this series, I immediately thought of you! It’s interesting that you were told that it would be difficult to feed Alfie because he was big – I was told the opposite, that is struggle because Baby Lighty was small and he’d want to ‘catch up’!! I don’t think you can win!! You’ve inspired me to be brave and start writing my (failed) breastfeeding story, thank you xxx

  2. Thanks for sharing your story. Breastfeeding definitely isn’t as straightforward as you might think, but I’m glad we’ve stuck with it. My daughter is 9 months old now, and I plan to continue breastfeeding as long as she’s interested – which may not be that long. She’s take to solids really well and is much more interested in food than boob these days! #coolmumclub

  3. Lovely to read about your breastfeeding journey. Everyone is so different we struggled and I exclusively pumped for 3 months and then finally got her onto the breast and then we kept going for 15 months! Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely x

    • Hopefully you will have a great experience with your second 🙂 definitely check out your local support groups before hand, I felt so much more confident knowing they were there if I needed them. Good luck!

  4. Wow, I had never heard of those myths about breastfeeding and cesarean births. I had 3 babies in 3 years all via c-section and breastfed them all and I had to pump because I produced so much milk that my boobs would ache even after feeding. Even developed Mastitis which after the 3rd time of it my doctor told me to pump after feeding to get all the milk out. Congrats to your journey! I am visiting from #fartglitter.

  5. Congrats on your breastfeeding journey and I can’t believe they were so quick to get you on formula – of course things aren’t going to be perfect straight away. I breastfed Archie for 3 months and regrettably stopped due to lack of support, something I immediately regretted! There needs to be more support for BFing women. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo
