While Breastfeeding for some comes naturally for others it can be difficult and painful and the pressure to continue can cause a lot of stress. At the end of the day your health and your precious bundle are the most important as your baby can feel stress - however before you give up make sure you have done the following.
1. Suffering from sore or tender nipples? When I was pregnant with my 2nd child after experiencing mastitis I developed our EGG Mama and Bebe Balm. This ended up to be my life saver for my 3rd pregnancy as I was over using smelly cabbage leaves - not a good look or a great smell when friends come to visit - but hay, I was DESPERATE!
Made with proven anti-inflammatory lanolin and wonder oil calendula the balm is especially formulated to repair and protect the most delicate parts of Mama and Baby's bodies. Plus we have 50% off this wonder product at present. Yay - a bargain too!!!
2. What do I do if my breast size is changing? It is essential to have super comfortable Nursing Bras. As my size went from a B cup to a DD and then settled to a C cup I did not want to keep buying different sizes bras until I was sure of what the boozucas were doing! I wish I had had the Cake Cotton Candy Luxury Seamless Nursing Bra back then.
This Luxury Seamless Maternity/ Nursing Bra is silky soft & built for comfort. Its carefully positioned double-layered side sling, strength panels and T-back structure is designed to maximise support and provide shape. The Luxurious Seamless Maternity/ Nursing Bra is ideal during the initial stages of pregnancy, immediately post childbirth and as a sleep-bra, when your breasts are rapidly changing in size & shape. This bra will grow to accommodate your changing bust without restriction.
3. Getting you baby to latch on. No easy task so this is where a good mid wife comes in. Even if you are onto your second pregnancy. I thought I did not need one second time around and what a big mistake that was! A really good nursing pillow also helps and Mumamu have come up with a brilliant one you can use for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Plus it is inflatable so perfect for travel. FANTASTIC!
4. Look good feel GREAT! Unless you are Giselle no one looks good in their husbands old shirts with a boob hanging out!!! This is your time so make sure you have a selection of good breastfeeding tops and dresses that feel comfortable and look fab. The majority of EGG's Maternity Dresses and Tops are designed to also be worn for nursing your baby. Got to love a garment that is multi purpose!
Yes you can cook the dinner, feed your baby and entertain your dog all at the same time!
