Sarah Hassan opens up on long traumatic experience breastfeeding her young son

A nursing mother’s greatest fear is if there will be enough for their newborn, whether they will be able to complete the journey successfully without lacking.

First time mothers are probably the most worried, being their first experience, they can only get to hear from older mothers what it was like, the journey and how to overcome any obstacles that come their way.

Unfortunately, even when there is plenty for your child, the fact that other mothers’ experiences are still ingrained in your mind sparks unnecessary worry that can either see you make or break depending on how you handle the situation.

Luckily, it has been an year plus since her journey began and she remains grateful that she was able to exclusively feed her baby boy on breast milk both in public and privately.

I’ve been lucky enough to have exclusively breastfed my little one for over a year now but one thing I was super scared about was not having enough milk or my milk drying out! Even though I had enough supply, I was still paranoid and it never hurts to just be prepared.

Yummy mummy, Sarah Hassan
