When I was a first time mom, it was scary. I had no idea how to take care of a baby. One thing that was pressed into my mind was breastfeeding. It seemed every website, nurse and doctor would talk breastfeeding. ”Great, I’ll breastfeed”, I so uneducated-lly told everyone and myself. To be honest there was nothing that hard about breastfeeding when it came down to it. Sure it hurt the first week or two, I never knew if my milk supply was enough and holding my son on the right was awkward, but breastfeeding itself was a piece of cake. The hard part was being a young mom uncomfortable with breastfeeding in front of others, even being covered up was uncomfortable. I would have to go into hiding and it was terrible, the car, bedroom, bathroom, dressing room, anywhere private. Needless to say, I let my uncomfortable, embarrassed issues get in the way of my babies nutrition and I quit breastfeeding him at 2 months. I was happy giving him a bottle of formula, but why?
One simple answer, everyone else was doing it! I never saw a baby being breastfed, everyone I talked to gave into formula and I was just like them, a follower. Had breastfeeding been a much more talked about socially acceptable public behavior, I think I would have stuck with it. That was over eleven years ago. With my next two babies, I felt more comfortable breastfeeding, educated myself and found support. Baby Gooroo emphasizes their brand on what’s important mother’s milk.
