my mother breastfed MY child!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
That's right she sure did! I wanted my child to have the best, my supply wasn't enough for her. So my mother who has always over produced and never had a problem nursing, took hormones and nursed my daughter. I will never be able to pay her back for what she's done for my daughter!

I'm not going to lie, it was very difficult watching someone else provide for my child what I should be able to. I had to set aside my pride and see what a blessing I had. The woman who nursed me as a child was offering why child a wonderful gift. Is it conventional? No. Was it easy or convenient for her? No. But it was giving my child the best, and I couldn't say no to that.

We never told anyone, well except for our husbands of course. She wants it to remain somewhat secretive, I asked her if i could share with others in hopes to spread the word about other options, but she asked me to keep in anon.

I'm so sorry!

My mom wasn't even sober enough to breastfeed me as an infant, so unfortunately I wouldn't have had that kind of support with my own kids. Nice that you did.

Once I got over the initial shock it actually ended up creating a special bond between my mother and my child as well as strengthening the bond between my mother and I. It ended up being a beautiful situation!

I pumped for my brother..his dumb ass mom thought breast feeding would ruin her breast..so I asked if I could pump to feed him. He was born at 29 weeks and was a weak lil baby. I felt since I was eight months pregnant and my milk was in full swing (I would soak though my shirts while sleeping) I asked her. She said yes, so the hospital gave me a pump. I pumped every three hours. He went home one week after I had my son. And I still pumped and had enough for my son to feed also. It was the best thing I could have done, and wouldn't change it for nothing.
