You might have nursed two babies and learned something new with baby three or four, or maybe still never learned what I’m about to tell you. Right now, I’m nursing baby number three and completing a program to become a breastfeeding educator. This program is how I learned a lot about breastfeeding that I had no clue about, even though I breastfed my daughter to age 4.5, son to age 2, and am still nursing my last little one.

My First Year Postpartum: Battling Food Intolerance and sleeplessness

Breastfeeding/ Home Page/ Postpartum/ Stories


When you have a baby, you’ll realize very quickly that everyone has an opinion and they aren’t afraid to share it with you. What they don’t tell you, however, is what those first few months of postpartum are really like. This lack of disclosure creates a lot of confusing emotions post-baby. Your emotions are such a roller coaster and you often feel alone, both physically and mentally. My story has several elements that resulted in a fairly tough journey.

Extended breastfeeding is widely accepted in some countries, but the United States isn’t one of them. Here, it’s an uncomfortable topic thought of as socially unacceptable, and support is lacking.
