Mila’s first latch. What a difference from my experience with Asher. Night and Day. She has already regained her birth weight and is stellar at the boob. It was tough the first 3 days, she wasn’t opening her mouth wide enough, God it HURT. All I kept thinking: “This is why moms quit, this hurts so bad.” Why did I persist? I have dedicated the last 2 1/2 years to learning as much as I can about breastfeeding. I knew that I needed some assistance from the LACTATION nurse and ultimately patience. Almost a week later and we are good, I’m still a little sore as she is still working on opening wide but she is eating plenty, I’ve got MILK and I’m over joyed. What a difference it has been. I’m committed to give Mila the best that I can.
When it gets hard, just breathe, ASK FOR HELP, and remember why you started in the first place. Like all things in life, if it were easy then everyone would do it. Believe in your self. .

Tried something new today. I always use the air dry cream but today I put in bendy wand hair sticks that I found in my daughters bathroom. Just twirled my hair around them and let air dry. Loving some waves today! Super easy too.
