Night weaning is not an easy decision to make. Or maybe for some it’s the easiest one… I guess it depends on who you ask. For me, I knew it was the right time when our breastfeeding relationship became one sided. My child wanted to nurse more than I could handle (whether physically or emotionally), and I needed a break. Breastfeeding is like any relationship,
Foremilk and Hindmilk
Okay so let’s talk how amazing breastmilk is. Or one of the many ways that is…
Here is a fun lesson in the wonders of breastmilk: I had been pumping 10oz in the morning and 10oz at night to donate. I decided to stop the morning pump session and pumped my nightly one a bit early because I was so crazy engorged.
In the photo above, check out the right side milk. It is the first milk pumped from my right breast. It is ALL foremilk from the pumping session I missed. Note how BLUE it is!!!!
And that’s just what they’ll do. (Insert tears of joy emoji here)..sorry, I had to..
Isn’t it ironic that we are born with breasts literally only made to feed your baby but breastfeeding isn’t something that comes naturally? Pretty rude isn’t it?
We all want to believe that the moment our sweet little babe is born into the world they will latch right on and this everlasting bond will immediately form.
