Whether moms realise it or not, there are stages of breastfeeding which all of us will face before we have our babies, and after they are born. New moms may be surprised and experienced moms can surely relate to our list of the many different stages a breastfeeding mom will go through.
At this point, most moms have heard the mantra that “Breast Is Best” and are determined to breastfeed. After all, it only involves lifting up your T-shirt and waiting a few minutes for your baby to finish eating, right?
Solution: There is no solution to this except experience. Every mom’s experience will differ from one baby to the next (some babies really do only take five minutes to feed – but don’t count on it)
After your baby is born, you may (though not assuredly) experience some difficulties with the feeding process. Your baby may not latch properly, or your breasts and nipples may hurt, or there may be a combination of issues involved.
Solution: If you are experiencing problems at the hospital or at home, take advantage of the knowledge of a nurse, lactation consultant, or your midwife.
Some babies like to “hang out” or even sleep at the breast, leaving a mom sitting on the couch for hours at a time.
Solution: Come armed to each feeding session. This means having the television remote within reaching distance, your phone in hand, and a snack and a glass of water on a side table.
After you attend just a couple of “mommy and me” meetings outside of the home, you will quickly realize the hundreds of dollars you have saved breastfeeding your child.
Solution: There is none. Save whatever you can and put it towards your baby’s future – or a new post-baby wardrobe.
Breastfeeding sheds up to 500 calories a day, which is why many breastfeeding moms claim to shed the “baby weight” faster than bottle feeding moms. With clever planning, you can buy an outfit before you have even had your baby which will continue to fit for months (if not years) afterwards.
Solution: Check out what we have atPeachymama.com. Our stylish on trend fashions are perfect for new moms as they allow easy access to the breast, but our attire cleverly crafted so that as your body changes, our clothing will change with you – while also showcasing your best assets.
