Breastfeeding my first baby was the hardest out of my three children. He wouldn't latch and I had to pump exclusively for him for the first two weeks of his life, and I was so exhausted recovering from a c-section and having to pump all the time. With good support, I didn't give up and my baby finally latched. I was so happy because all the education I had received prenatally helped me stay strong in my determination to breastfeed... even at my lowest moments, I knew breast milk was the best for him and I wanted to continue trying. Breastfeeding came to be the best thing I did for my baby Zackary. We enjoyed it so much that he breastfed for 5 years!!! I still treasure those memories!
I've seen the difference breastfeeding makes in babies' lives and how empowered moms feel after successfully breastfeeding their babies.

I really wanted to help other families breastfeed their babies and see how precious the experience can be.
Enjoy your baby! Children grow up too fast. Latch, hold and wear your baby as much as possible, this will tell your body my baby is here! I need more milk!
