026: My Breastfeeding Journey & What I Wish I Knew Before

My Breastfeeding Journey & What I Wish I Knew Before

I am finally sharing my breastfeeding journey in this episode. It is still going on as Sarelle continues nursing at almost two years old. I thought I would share what we have experienced since the day she was born, how it’s changed, the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

I’m also sharing my top tips for what I wish I knew before I started breastfeeding. Plus, what I will be taking into breastfeeding baby number two.
