#bottlefeedingstories with Naomi

13th April 2017

This week’s #bottlefeedingstories isn’t from a blogger – Naomi got in touch through my Facebook page and asked if she could share her story, having read the stories shared in this series.

My name is Naomi, former Midwife and mum to my beautiful ABW. I started bottle feeding when my son was 14 days old after a difficult first couple of weeks. I had planned to breastfeed.

Will I Ever Really Feel Like “A Mum”?

10th April 2017

I remember being younger and looking up at adults thinking, “Wow, it must be so cool to be a grown up, and to know how things work…”. And then I got to my 20s and looked up at the 30 somethings and thought, “I can’t wait until I’m grown up enough to have a decent grasp on life… I’ll have a career and a house and I’ll have life SORTED.”

Now I’m 30. 31 in June if I’m being honest. I still don’t have a clue. I don’t feel like a grown up. I still feel the same as I did when I was 17 – just 3 dress sizes larger with a better phone.

#bottlefeedingstories with Candyfloss & Dreams

6th April 2017

This week’s #bottlefeedingstories comes from Kat over at Candyfloss & Dreams. She had a really lovely Health Visitor who gave her loads of advice, but struggled to find enough support to feed confidently.

I’m Kat, I blog at Candyfloss & Dreams (candyflossdreams.net) and I want my blog to inspire others to make the best choices for themselves. I love sharing my experience on topics that are sometimes a little hard for others because I believe that tough topics should be normalised and everyone needs a little support.

10 Reasons I’m #rockingmotherhood

3rd April 2017

A little while ago I was tagged in White Camillas #rockingmotherhood Tag by Claire over at The Pramshed. It’s easy to be hard on ourselves as parents; the difficult moments stay in our heads far more tenaciously than the little lovely everyday things. So this fab tag is a reminder of all the amazing things we do that mean we’re rocking motherhood, and a way to focus on the positives.

#bottlefeedingstories with The Mighty Duxburys

30th March 2017

Welcome back to #bottlefeedingstories. This week we have the ever so lovely Amy from The Mighty Duxburys

I’m Amy. I blog over at The Mighty Duxburys and live in a little village with my husband Wes and my little one, Short Rib. Before he was born, the ideal scenario would be that he would be breastfed whilst I remained on maternity for eight weeks and after that, I’d express for when I was at work and then breastfeed at home for maybe another four or five months. In reality, I wound up combination feeding right from the off, because my boy was a “sleepy feeder” and wasn’t really interested in my boobs. He just wanted to nap. He continued to show complete apathy towards my chest, so I tried to express instead but after three or four excruciating weeks and very achy boobs, I packed it in and he’s been solely bottle fed ever since.
