Deze vrouwen tonen hoe mooi (en tegelijkertijd zwaar) borstvoeding geven is

Er ligt nog een behoorlijk taboe op het geven van borstvoeding, vooral in het openbaar. Ook de negatieve kanten, zoals de pijn en de moeite, worden vaak niet verteld en getoond. Voor veel vrouwen is dat een reden om op social media open te zijn over borstvoeding.

En dus delen we een rijtje met moeders die tonen hoe mooi (en tegelijkertijd zwaar) borstvoeding geven is.

Borstvoeding

Borsten zijn normaal, je kind voeden met je borst is normaal, striae is normaal (zelfs veel mannen hebben het) en een beetje blote huid is normaal. En toch wordt aan veel vrouwen gevraagd of ze niet in het openbaar hun kind aan de borst willen leggen. Begrijp jij het nog? Deze vrouwen in ieder geval niet en steken er hun stokje voor. You go girls!

Lees hier hoe je op je zelf een steentje kan bijdragen aan het normaliseren van borstvoeding.

De eerste keer borstvoeding ging ik nogal naïef in. Een beetje met de gedachte je legt de baby aan je borst en hoppa, melk. Hartstikke makkelijk. Dat viel me nogal tegen. Sterker nog, ik vond het hartstikke pijnlijk en intensief. Niet omdat er iets verkeerd ging, ik legde haar goed aan, had een fijne kraamverzorgster die me hielp, een ontzettend begripvolle man (weliswaar met een nutteloze borstpartij) en ik had genoeg melk dus dat was het probleem niet. Maar goh, je tepels krijgen ineens wel opvallend veel aandacht die eerste weken. Dat in combinatie met het herstellen van de bevalling, de hormonen, het emotionele aspect van moeder worden, de energie die voeden kost en het feit dat je tussen de voedingen door nauwelijks de tijd krijgt wat te rusten of te bevatten wat er allemaal gebeurt omdat je kindje zich alweer meldt voor de volgende voeding, maakte dat ik het ontzettend intensief en overweldigend vond. Ik nam mezelf op dat moment voor het 3 maanden vol te houden, dat werden er 14 want pas na die 3 maanden hadden we een fijn ritme te pakken samen. Iets dat ik die eerste weken echt niet had geloofd als je het me had verteld. Mozes voed ik nu ruim 5 maanden, en ik hoop nog lang door te gaan. En dan heb ik nog het geluk dat ik thuis ben met de kinderen, want voor alle kolvende moeders heb ik diep respect. Het is een ontzettend beladen onderwerp, borstvoeding geven. Voor sommigen lukt het niet, kan het door omstandigheden niet, sommige vrouwen willen het niet of worden slecht begeleid die eerste weken. Maar oordeel nooit over de manier waarop baby’s worden gevoed want je kent het achterliggende verhaal niet. Dat iemand andere keuzes maakt dan de jouwe zouden zijn maakt niet dat er een goed of fout is. Zie je een moeder voeden en maak je oogcontact, glimlach dan. Misschien had zij net dat stukje support nodig om zich zelfverzekerd te voelen tijdens het voeden in een openbare ruimte. Of dat nou bedekt is of niet, aan tafel of ergens afgezonderd. Wat maakt het uit. Je kan er in veel gevallen van uitgaan dat het voor een verse moeder allemaal al overweldigend genoeg is. Je bezighouden met wat anderen op zo’n moment van je denken zou niet nodig moeten zijn.♥️Vrouwen.

THIS ONE’S FOR THE LADIES Just a few thoughts that I wanted to share on Breast-feeding. Last week was my last week nursing Banks (my six month old) I am a working mom of two. My goal was to get my little girl to six months and then decide if I (and her of course) wanted to keep going. Let me tell you. Pumping at work sucks. I had zero down time and am usually pumping in a hair and make up trailer while four hands work to get me ready for the next scene with lots of other people around. Even if I had the luxury to be in my own room, it’s not even considered a “break” because you have to sit upright for the milk to flow into the bottles! Plus you are having your damn nipples tugged at by an aggressive machine that makes an annoying sound, that echoes through your head day and night (I swear that machine and I had many conversations at midnight and 3 am)! Ttttthen having to find someplace to sterilize bottles and keep your milk cold (ok I’m done with that rant lol)! Anyway, I didn’t know this because with Luca I didn’t work until he was about nine months old, so I didn’t pump very often. Your milk supply drastically drops when you stop feeding as often and lose the actual contact and connection with your baby (😞). So I was eating all the feunugreek goats butt blessed thistle fennel cookies/drops/shakes/pills I could get my hands on! It was maddening. (Does fenugreek make anyone else smell like maple syrup and rubber gloves?…not chill) With all of this complaining, I want to say I enjoyed (almost) every moment of feeding my daughter. Felt so lucky to be so close to her and give her that start. I know many women are not able to and for that I am sympathetic and very grateful that I could. For six wonderful months. But I needed a break. I was going to break. With the stress of a dropping milk supply and a baby that was getting bored or not caring about nursing when I was available to. I was sad and frustrated and feeling like a failure all of the time. When really I’m a bad ass rock star. Moms get high on feeling like superwoman…because we are! Doing too much, because we can!

This is the beginning of a month long celebration of the joy, the pain, the challenges & the triumphs of breastfeeding. Mother Nature is deeply invested in breastfeeding & we are uniquely designed to feed our young. Breastmilk provides information, not just nutrition- it’s a complex form of communication that is dependent on the endocrine system, the emotional body, the brain and the physical body. _ Besides the wonderful life long bond & deeply rooted connection you establish with your baby, breastfeeding also encourages the uterus to contract back to its normal size. Breastfeeding can burn up to 600 calories daily- so you need to eat & stay well hydrated to maximize production. From breastfeeding alone you may lose a pound of pregnancy weight every week. Breastfeeding is also linked to lower lower incidences of breast cancer later in life. I’d like to honor the serious challenges that can make it difficult & nearly impossible for some women to manage breastfeeding. These are the result of policy gaps & a culture that doesn’t honor women, the sacred birth process, motherhood or women’s bodies. Some of the manifestations include stress and anxiety, challenges at home or work; extended separation of mother & baby at birth; having to go back to work shortly after birth, difficulty latching that results in pain for the mother and frustration for both mother and baby; & low milk production. These issues also exacerbated by existential stress, PPD, dehydration, & poor diet. Engorgement & improper latching are two of the most common hurdles to comfortable breastfeeding. Many women give up breastfeeding after the first few weeks postpartum due to pain, discomfort & no paid maternity leave. Support and community is key. Having healthy models for breastfeeding and advocates can increase breastfeeding success. My friend Latham Tomas and her @mamaglow team will be sharing tips, tools, anecdotal stories & inspiration as we honor the incredible work our bodies do to feed our young. I’m so grateful to have had people like her as an example in my life and we should al share our stories to #normalizebreastfeeding That shouldn’t even be a hashtag!! #worldbreastfeedingweek ♥️

#worldbreastfeedingweek I would never have thought something so simple would be so complicated. My milk came in immediately (so lucky!) my daughter has always eaten well (little bit of reflux but all good) and breastfeeding her was never painful or frustrating (SO RARE) but the mastitis🥴, waking up in the middle of the night to pump😴, pulling off on the freeway to pump, or hiding in dark corners of houses while pumping or else I can’t sleep it’s SO PAINFUL🥵 (I’ve included the most glamorous I’ve ever looked while feeling like an effing cow) having to be conscious of everything I put or do not put in my body (it’s been almost two years if you count pregnancy) and that means alcohol, medication, even melatonin! I can’t even join in all of this cool CBD stuff that’s happening.But… no matter how much I HATE pumping or how complicated MY relationship with food is, it has been a joy, an honor and a no brainer to feed my daughter this way. 🙌🏽 My body has made it easy for us and i have loved every moment i get to spend this kind of time with her. Not every mother gets that. I don’t know if I will have it for much longer, but I will always take care of her and do what is best for us. (Once again f*ck pumping. Love you forever babay girl)

A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about whose idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more. Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great. Besides she’s wearing Versace and @bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls 💪🏽 #rachelmcadams for @girls.girls.girls.magazine .com cover shoot 📸 @clairerothstein #pleaseshare . . . Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that’s ok too. . . .

Went into my @honest office today for a board meeting, although I’m still technically on mat leave. Not gonna lie, it’s impossible for me to completely unplug from work …and it felt nice being back -even though it was just a half day. Baby boy came to visit/eat at lunch. Felt very productive today. 🤱🏽👊🏽 #workingmom #entrepreneurlife #breastfeedingmama

I often get asked how long I plan on breastfeeding. To be honest, I have no idea how long her and I will be on this journey together. I follow her lead, and she tells me exactly what she needs. At 20 months she is only just becoming interested in food. I discovered after a year of blending and smooshing and mashing, that my daughter doesn’t like mushy baby food. Wild right? It wasn’t until someone suggested I skip puréed food and go straight to finger foods that she became intrigued by what was on her plate. Who knew some kids just don’t ever go for blended baby food. I tried bananas, avocado, all the semi-soft good stuff and she rejected everything. Never in a million years did I think to skip that step when she only had two teeth. Also, I thought all babies loved avocado! So all you mamas out there having trouble feeding your little one the mushy stuff, maybe try over-steamed veggies diced up itty bitty so he/she can play with textures. I wish someone had told me this sooner! If your little one isn’t eating puréed solids, they might want to go straight for big people food! Right now thats where were at, still breastfeeding and skipping right to finger foods. Also, in case you need to hear it again because I definitely did, whatever you’re doing you are doing it right! Every baby is on their own path doing things when and how they need to, and our job is to trust our gut, talk to other mamas and just go with the flow! Ps accidental matching outfits…come on! This bloomer/hat combo courtesy of both Grandmas making all my baby-wardrobe dreams I didn’t know I had come true 🙂
