The secrets of breast feeding with Sheri Bayles
Moms and Dads, I’m going to let you in on a little secret breastfeeding is the dirty little secret of new motherhood for SOME moms… and I’m one of them. Since the day my son was born, I have felt a real sense of responsibility towards breastfeeding…and a real guilt when my 4 day old son went on a nursing strike.
I have laughed, cried and screamed over breastfeeding. There are days where I have loved being able to provide for my child in this way—and others where I thought, WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?
I committed to it in the hospital and I’m not a quitter… but to call it natural is honestly, comical. I knew from the get-go I needed help. So I called on the best person I could think of: Sheri Bayles who happens to be one of the most well-known lactation consultants in the new York city area. Look, she primed me during labor and Matthew flew out of me in 3 pushed/5 minutes. If she could work that magic I thought, SURELY she’ll help me breastfeed.
We’re taking a look back on my breastfeeding journey and what a ride it’s been. It’s my true honor to introduce you to Sheri Bayles.
