Breastfeeding.


  

Best decision I’ve ever made for my child was to breastfeed him, & the fact that it’s even healthier for him makes it all worth it. It’s been 6 months since I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, & we’re still enjoying this breastfeeding journey! Mike is my biggest supporter when it comes to breastfeeding, besides the mommy pages I follow. Whenever I feel like giving up, he always remind me that I have another 6 months to go lol.

Breastfeeding isn’t easy the first week or two, because you feel like your milk isn’t coming in fast enough. But what I have learned is the more you put your baby on your breast, the more milk you produce. Of course your nipples are going to be really sore and cracking, the first week or so. But after that, it goes right to normal and the soreness goes away! Now if you’re still expericing tenderness on your nipples, I would definitely talk to a lactation specialist or your doctor.

People always ask me “when will you stop breastfeeding”? I guess the answer to your questions is I don’t think I’ll stop anytime soon and to be completely honest, I’m thinking about breastfeeding until he’s about one or two years old. I totally wouldn’t mind breastfeeding for another year or so.

Hello beautiful souls, I'm Takeia Cage, and I'm the CEO/Founder of Unashamed Queens! I'm an advocate, momtrepreneur, life coach, and motivational blogger. I have always been dedicated to helping women re-discover their light, while walking in their truth, unashamed! It wasn’t until I was in my early twenties, when I discovered my calling to be an advocate for the women in my community. I have always wanted to be apart of a sisterhood that supported, uplifted, and celebrated women without us feeling judged or even ashamed of our journey. There wasn’t many women empowerment groups in my community that actually focused on celebrating queens, so I decided to create my own community for unashamed women. Now I am the founder of Unashamed Queens, a women’s empowerment group that focuses on supporting, uplifitng, and celebrating queenhood. I would always tell myself years ago that you can’t help anyone if you can’t help yourself, and today I believe that statement is so untrue. It wasn’t until I was re-discovering my own light, that I wanted to also encourage/help other women to re-discover theirs as well. I truly believe that we’re all stronger together, and that creating a safe-space for women to feel support and loved through sisterhood.
