   I am so proud to say Im a breastfeeding mama! I have been blessed by this experience. It is amazing what a womans body can do-from creating and carrying a baby for 9months to the child birth to suppling growth and wellness from your body to your baby. My whole experience being a mother has given me a firm validation that God is real and Im shown how great his love is everyday through Judah . Man I love being a mother! 

  I have especially loved the instinct bond breastfeeding has given me with my baby. And Im so thankful I was able to breastfeed, I know some moms have problems getting the baby to latch or gain weight.  I sure had my ups and downs at first with breast feeding. I had mastitis FOUR TIMES in one month! But Im so glad I continued my breastfeeding journey with my little bebe. 

  There are so many positive benefits from breastfeeding- it helps get your uterus back down to regular size. (Feels like contractions at first after birth when breastfeeding). It helps you loose weight because you are burning calories. Which I notice when I pump throughout the day as well as breastfeed Judah I notice change in my weight. Plus the amazing benifits your baby gets-Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria. Its freaking amazing! It was created for a reason! God knew what he was doing.
