I am so excited to introduce a brand new Guest Post Series on the blog #BreastfeedingStories. Launching this week in collaboration with Medela who I am proud to say I have just joined as a Medela Mum, the guest post series is an opportunity to bring together breastfeeding stories from other mums who have breastfeeding experiences that they would like to share. Medela is a brand that I love and have previously collaborated with so am really pleased to be working with again!
I was lucky enough to be able to breastfeed my first baby for ten months, although it wasn’t without its difficulties and challenges in the early stages as I wrote about during my first experience of breastfeeding. But I know from my experience and from talking to others and hearing their stories, that breastfeeding can be so different from one person to another, and even between having a first, second or third (or more) baby. Which is why I think it is so important for us to share these stories and have an honest and true account of breastfeeding, from one parent to another.
It seems there is a never ending debate around breastfeeding vs bottle feeding, and this series is not about breast being best. Because how a parent feeds their child is not what is important. It’s what works best for each mother and baby that is important.
As parents, there’s nothing more powerful than realising that someone else out there has had or is having a similar experience to you. So if you’ve got a breastfeeding story you would like to share as part of the series please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter. I’d love to help you share your #BreastfeedingStories.
