If in doubt, Get your Boobs out!! Breastfeeding is more than Nutrition.

Breastfeeding is more than Nutrition

As an experienced breastfeeding Mum of 4, I would now like to pass on my Mummy Mantra, to new Mum’s, especially those who don’t have a clue where to start..

“IF IN DOUBT, GET YOUR BOOBS OUT!!!”

Now I understand breastfeeding isn’t for all of you.

Before you just opt out at the cringey thought of a baby suckling on your boob… (which we all think is going to be weird, but once you start it’s not as bad as you think!) or because you don’t want to ruin the pertness of your sexy rack.. (it’s gonna happen anyway I’m afraid!!!) Please read on to find out why your boobs could just make your baby/toddler experience so much easier.

My knockers have been so much more than valuable nutrition for my babies. They are a secret weapon to whip out at any given moment. To feed, soothe, comfort and stop any tantrum or crying fit in it’s tracks! Once you have your baby, you will quickly understand how valuable such a tool is!

We are all told just how nutritious our mummy milk is for our developing baby. Scientists are still discovering just how fabulous it is. Recently I read a new discovery that breast milk contains a certain unknown bacteria, individual to our milk. The bacteria lines the babies intestines and prevents other bacteria and nasties being absorbed. This will explain why my smallsies have super strong immunity.

The main reason I have stayed clear of formula milk for my babies, is it just doesn’t sit well with me. Using the processed powder of another mammals milk. Doesn’t sound nourishing or natural!

And I’m not a lazy person, but having to get out of bed to heat up bottles 2 or more times in the night… just seems like MADNESS to me, when you can just pull your tit out and go back to sleep!! Baby hasn’t even had to cry and you can just squint one eye open to make sure they latched on!

But I guess I’m very lucky, breast feeding has always come very natural to me. But I think that’s because I am so stubborn and wouldn’t have it any other way! My babies latch on well and my body produces enough milk.

However, it can be toe curlingly sore in the first few weeks. I have cried in agony as the baby feeds more during growth spurts and his tongue feels like a razor against my red raw nipples!! If you have sensitive red head skin like me, try and persevere, because it is so worth it!

There are loads of breastfeeding support groups in communities and social media, so help is out there if you struggle.

Sleep training isn’t for me. Letting a baby cry doesn’t bode well with my maternal instinct. You need to make your own mind up with this. But psychologist research backs me up, they state it causes insecurities in later life.
And this new understanding of parenting has started a new craze called ‘attachment parenting’, which is great that someone thought to label what is just actually natural parenting, but I guess some people need to make things feel trendy! However, because it’s ‘fashionable’ to parent this way, there is lots of useful information out there.

I have found lying with my baby/toddler, feeding to sleep helps them feel comforted and they fall to sleep easily. My youngest will be 2 in a couple of months, he has never been difficult to get to sleep, and recently he has even started recognizing when he is tired and asking to go to bed. It’s so easy!!! And my nearly 6 year old was the same.

“You’ll make a rod for own back” people tried to tell me when I chose to bed share. (my 20 year old doesn’t still sleep with me!!)  But when each of my boys were ready (with encouragement) to go into their own bed, I would tell him a story and lie with him until he fell asleep. Then read to him and leave him to go to sleep by himself. Tantrums at bedtime??…NEVER!!!

To me it just translates as ‘Parenting’…. putting your child’s needs first.

Your boobs are there for a reason, and parenting is not supposed to be difficult. Use what nature has given you, and your baby will reward you with good behavior and smiles!
