Three Hundred & Fifty-Four

Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! We rang in the new year as a family at some of our friend’s house.

Fifty nine bags filled with six ounces of breastmilk each found their way to one of our dearest friends. Baby G, aka Jaxon’s future girlfriend, has received milk before but was in need of more, so her mama reached out to me. The best part was when I received a text from her husband asking if I meant to give them “all this milk”. To be completely honest, my supply has dipped and I’ve been nervous to continue to donate, but if I’m able to keep pumping and able to donate here and there, I will. I’ve put this N U M B E R on donating and I’m trying my hardest to find a balance of achieving this goal and also having a comfortable amount for Jaxon if my supply goes away.

Jaxon turned one month on January 2nd and I can hardly believe he’ll be O N E ! It was my goal to make it to one year, which I honestly didn’t think I’d reach in the beginning with how hard breastfeeding was, so the fact that it’s less than a month away I’m so grateful. I’ll continue this journey as long as long as my body allows, or as long as Jaxon doesn’t bite me with all his incoming teeth!
To all the moms who have felt discouraged nursing or pumping, who have cried when their baby latched on, to the mom’s who have felt their supply dip… you are a champion.
To all you moms who have been able to formula feed your little ones, washing out all the bottles, buying the countless cans of formula so your little one is well-fed… you are a champion.
