Breastfeeding for Three
Isn't this a great picture? Imaging getting three babies ready for the snow.
After the last story, comments have been pouring in. Everyone seems to love reading stories about other women's trials and successes with breastfeeding. This mother of triplets updated me on how things are going for her. She is happy to share this with you.
I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading your stories. I love the perseverance of all the women you worked with, and how hard you work to help your clients meet their goals. It makes me so wish that the feeding at the breast had worked out for us. But I am still so happy and proud to still be pumping and giving them each about 6 ounces per day, I just wish it could be more and at the breast. Thank-you so much for helping me get where I am, I am not sure I'd still be pumping without your help in that rocky beginning. The boys have only had one mild cold this winter so I think the antibodies are helping them.
What commitment. What belief in the power of breastmilk. She deserves a gold medal. Her boys are now eight months old. Aren't they gorgeous?
Every ounce of breastmilk is like money in the bank for your child's health. Give as much as you can for as long as you can.
Never underestimate the power of breastmilk!
