Janet Mbugua opens up about her breastfeeding experience with her new born

Former news anchor Janet Mbugua recently welcomed her second born child called Mali. Thanks to a video shared on her YouTube channel we understand that she gave birth via C-section; just like her first baby boy Huru.

However in the vlog Janet Mbugua says that she had earlier prepared for a normal birth; but after having series of long contractions for almost 10 hours, she then opted for surgery.

Her new young boy was delivered safely but we understand that Janet Mbugua had to go back to hospital for another 1 week. The media personality revealed this in her first section of her #myfirst28days with a newborn series on her social media pages.

A little tender moment as Huru welcomed his little brother home at the end of week one. It’s been quite the adjustment and not all smooth sailing, story for another day (toddler + newborn + first month ?) BUT there are precious bits and pieces ☺️ Meanwhile thank you SO much for your feedback on Part 1 of 4 of the series I’m doing in collaboration with #Lifebuoy called #MyFirst28Days (link in bio); some info on why hygiene and sanitation for babies can save their lives. More in the coming weeks and next week, details on why I returned to hospital ? #HelpAChildReach5 ? Edit: That Moses basket at the back is a gift from @totocarebox! I’ll have details of that and other gift ideas in another video soon ??

Breastfeeding struggles

Just like most new mums, Janet Mbugua reveals that she had quite a challenging time breastfeeding her newborn the first 3 days. She went on to reveal saying;

I’m still having breastfeeding struggles but I’m trying for it not to get to me because even last time it took about three days for the milk to flow,”

Anyway baby Mali is doing great as far as we know and we can’t wait to see his face soon!
