Momma, The Milk Champion

So when K-Dub was born, she was very upset the entire first year of her life. She pretty much screamed and threw fits cause she was having some severe stomach issues. My wife tried to breastfeed her but after about the third or fourth time of us trading her back and forth through the night she was over it. We switched to formula and life was made easier. Formula is amazing but the price on that stuff is crazy.

So when Evie came along my wife said as he wanted to try it again. I was very supportive cause not only were we not going to have to spend $100 a month on powdered food but my daughter was going to get so much more benefits out of breastfeeding. My wife was excited which in turn made me excited. It was a matter of minutes after Evie was born that she got on like she had been waiting for it her whole two-minute life. Breastfeeding was a go! My wife was beyond thrilled.

As the weeks and months went on my wife started to focus on breastfeeding. When I say this I mean she bought a nursing bra, a pumping bra, vitamins to help with her supply, joined an online support group, and even found that Gatorade helps with your milk supply. I of course got the Gatorade on coupon! That was alls she talked about. She was a proud Mom and I could not have been more happy for her.

Can I just say that my wife is amazing. I think I may have said it a few times already in this post. She never gave up and always makes sure she has enough milk to send Evie to daycare with. That amazing liquid has been used for a lot more than feeding. When Evie was sick my wife read to squirt some up her nose to help her breath and it worked. Its amazing what the body can do.

I find it really funny when we are out in public and my daughter needs to eat. BrittWhitFun pulls it out and feeds our child and does not care what people think. You would not believe the looks we get and even by some of our own family members. It does not stop us. Why would you try to hide something that is so natural. People are crazy and I dare someone to tell my wife to put it away. She would lose it.

Anyway, I am so glad that things have worked out some much better this time. My wife has become a rock star of breastfeeding and I am so proud of her. Evie is not missing any meals, trust me!
