Nursing has been very difficult! I have been exclusively breast feeding baby #3 after facing many many obstacles and even being told “maybe it’s just time to give up”. If it wasn’t for being determined to succeed, I would given up when my first was born! Why doesn’t anyone share the pain that comes alongside nursing? The pain that comes with pumping? Mastitis? Thrush? Nipple shield? Cold chills? Bleeding? Wounds? Milk blisters? Tongue tied? Lip tied? I’ve been through a lot through the 2, going on 3 years of nursing/pumping and have had plenty of sleepless nights to research getting through it so I’ve shared my experience with you in hopes that it can help you get through the obstacles that come with nursing (see link below).
