I can do this!

Today was a very good day. I saw at least 6 pregnant clients who all said they would give breastfeeding a try and one who said she defiantly would breastfeed. All said they want to attend a breastfeeding support group which we are getting ready for January. Now let me get to the most exciting part. How about I had a mom who has twins and have been bottle feeding them for a month. She has been pumping and giving them formula as well. She and her husband want to eliminate the bottles and asked me..wittle ole help them!! I'M SO EXCITED and very Nervous at the same time. I also meet with a mom who had nipple damage and wants to start her baby back at the the breast as well. I feel honored and humbled that these moms are trusting me with helping them reestablish there breastfeeding relationship. This job had been a blessing for me and now its my time to get into action and give back to these moms. I would love any advise especially from moms breastfeeding twins or a mom of nipple damage. Also I tend to hit Twitter before blogging so catch me on there as I update what happens with these moms. ~toodles~


  1. i don't have any advice but i did have nipple damage, it was unbearable i would cry for whole feeds, i gave birth without drugs and breast-feeding was much worse. I stuck with it even though everyone told me to give up, and i probably would have given up if it wasn't for people like you who encouraged me to keep at it, your job is amazing and you are worth your weight in gold

  2. Aww thank you @Antoinette I appreciate that. I also know of a mom who I work with who "sucked it up" so to speak and kept breastfeeding and she had no one there helping or encouraging her. I am very happy to be apart of WIC to help our moms. I wish I had, had some kind of support 3 kids ago...cause had I known what I know now..I would of breastfeed all my kids.
