What I want I’d have instructed myself.

That is me, age 29, with my husband and first child Hannah. I didn’t cry when she was born…I cried when she latched for the primary time, which occurred moments earlier than this picture was captured. This photograph, taken by Doula Dianne, means a lot to me now as a result of it was the start of my feeding journey. It’s additionally the true begin down a path that led me to realizing all of you great people and attending to reside out my ardour with my wonderful enterprise accomplice Judy.

I seem giddy and joyous right here, however I used to be additionally so anxious about breastfeeding. I put SO a lot strain on myself to breastfeed, and fortuitously after a TON of ache and latch points (we later realized she had a extreme tongue and lip tie), I had an ideal breastfeeding expertise. Not all the time straightforward, however nice. I want I had instructed myself that it doesn’t matter what, it will all be okay.

Once we began baby-led weaning at 6 months on the nostril, my eldest took to it like a champ. My second daughter was much more of a foodie and was demanding to participate of each meal we ate as soon as she began with strong meals. I’ve been lucky to have the knowledge of Judy and what would ultimately change into our on-line toddler and toddler programs to assist me navigate any challenges that got here up. I do know I’m fortunate.

I do know from the purchasers I see day by day that not all feeding journeys go this fashion, that mine could seem particularly straightforward. Judy and I work with feeding and diet challenges day by day – we take heed to and luxury candy mamas as they cry, mourning the lack of an expertise they so want they’d. We have a good time even the tiniest of successes and supply our skilled and mama-to-mama help when issues get robust. We like assembly such great, various, passionate households and witnessing new dad and mom evolve into the fiercely protecting folks they by no means knew they had been.

Feeding and diet are SO emotional, so private. Everybody does it otherwise, as a result of everyone seems to be totally different. We’re grateful to be a part of your journey. Thanks for being a part of ours too!
