Breastfeeding Project, Grimsby - Becky and Ayrton
Please tell us why you would like to take part in this project?
I've loved feeding both of my boys, but I don't have any nice photos to remember it by in years to come!
Tell us a little about your breastfeeding journey so far?
I fed my older son for just over a year and it was smooth sailing, but when my younger son was born he had to spend his first few days in the NICU and I was recovering from a c-section. While in NICU he was given formula every 2 hours, as well as being on a drip, and I had to try and feed in between his bottles, when I could physically be on the ward. When he was discharged he had no formula and we spent a fairly hellish 48 hours establishing a supply. It took a few weeks for him to get the hang of latching easily, but I'm so pleased I got the chance to try.
