It has been a glorious struggle ❤

Ashley • Happily married, have a wonderful son, and a sweet baby girl 💜

Baby girl will be 11 months in 4 days. Holy sh*t how did I make it this far?! My son was bottle fed, so I had different struggles with him. My little princess made me a cow up until 3 months. Then I was back to work, pumping 2-3 times a day and nursing at night. My milk supply dropped to almost non existent by 7 months. I started pumping more, drank a crap ton of water, did the supplements, lactation cookies, etc. I put on at least 10lbs and my supply was barely there. It was probably the unhappiest I have been post partum. Then one day it started increasing just slightly, she started eating more and more solids. I no longer pump during the day and I only nurse right before bed and once in the wee hours of the morning. She is starting to self wean, but it's nice to know I'm making enough to try and get her to the year mark. My goal was 6 months. I'm at 11. We have a happy baby and a proud mama
