Mocheddah’s journey back to re-lactation. She talked about how she struggled with her milk supply in her first week postpartum, trying to get the baby to latch, being new at it and also being unable to sit because of stitches and hemorrhoids.
She also talked about how her mental health and breastfeeding weren’t a great pair. In the process of trying to work on it, taking her time to do other things, she realized she wasn’t pumping up to an ounce a day.
At some point, she decided she was ready to try again, she started working more on her supply, latching and even though she didn’t get anything in the first two days, she didn’t give up but remained consistent with it.
Then she tried again and got almost 3 ounces, it’s inspired her to stay hydrated and doing more things to boost her supply.
She’s decided to keep her mental health in check as she has realized it works hand in hand with her supply.
