Laid Bare: Rosie

Laid Bare: Rosie

I’m Rosie. I have two boys, several grey hairs (sob), and a half drunk tepid cup of tea always within arm’s reach.

Like many new mamas, I had some problems with feeding. I knew breastfeeding would be a challenge but I didn’t quite prepare myself for the shit storm that was heading my way. I had a lot of problems with my boobs. Getting milk into G was a real challenge but we also had the added issue of him keeping it down! Despite my best efforts G was soon on the bottle and it wasn’t long before he was on a special formula too. 

Our second mini came 18 months later, and the boobs were still grossly misbehaving. This time, armed with knowledge and experience, I triumphed in breastfeeding – but gaining the knowledge was harder than you might think. I found that my issues were not covered in a way that rang true to me. There seemed to be conflicting advice and dare I say it, general ignorance.

I’m no expert, but I had one for the bottle and one for the boob – my boys are both MilkMade.
