We all have our own breastfeeding journey. We are a diverse people so why would we think our journey would mirror another? Black lactation is about meeting our families where they are, supporting our unique needs, and getting our Genius Babies the Best Milk in Town. Pumping is one way of doing that. There are aspects of pumping that are not common knowledge so professional support is a good and needed tool for our families. If you don't have support I would be honored to journey with you or direct you to a sister lactavist.
#Repost@blackwomendoclothdiaper ・・・ Baby #5 is breastfed. I went to work when she was 3 months. I wasn't able to pump enough milk and found myself forced to supplement with formula. I honestly do not have anything against formula aside from how expensive it is. I'd much rather save money and exclusively pump. Milk Matters Lactation cookies allowed me to pump enough breastmilk while I was at work. I was finally able to provide my baby pumped breast milk. My baby is now 9 months old, healthy and thriving. 📸@turvielaner
#Shareyourclothways I researched my cloth wash routine and the best type of cloth options for my family on fluffloveuniversity.com. So much valuable information and indexes on that site. We are 4 weeks in and never looking back. Our pockets are thankful. We decided on pockets and AIOs. 📸 @supernova_momma
