Okay! So I am actually really excited for what I have to share with you today because for the entire first year of Jessamyn's life we literally used it every single day, multiple times a day. That item would be a breast pump. I didn't have social media when I first had Jessamyn so it really hasn't ever been something I shared but I exclusively pumped for the entire first year of Jessamyn's life. That is correct every 2-3 hours, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, I was using my breast pump and without it I would definitely have had to stop all together and put Jessamyn on formula. This is not to say there is anything wrong with formula but for me personally I wanted to be able to feed Jessamyn exclusively with my breast milk and was able to do that thanks to my insurance provided breast pump.Read More
Nursing bras! This is a topic I knew nothing about walking into my first pregnancy and this time around was determined to have a bit more knowledge and a few more options! Last pregnancy I bought a grand total of 2 nursing bras and wore them both for over a year. It was not the worst but this time around I have quite a few more options and feel a bit more confident whether we end up nursing for a year or pumping exclusively for a year like I had to do with Jessamyn.
Which on that note I wanted to say no matter what you end up choosing to do as far as feeding your baby there is really no bad option... do what works best for you and know that you are enough.Read More
