Being a Mother is fun – but it’s never easy. We Mother’s, go through a lot from pregnancy, to giving birth and the post partum journey that we encounter.
Just to give you a bit of background, I have been breastfeeding my first born, Zelda, for more than 2 years now and honestly I enjoyed every moment of it.
A week ago, I gave birth to our little prince, Geralt, and I can say he really gets hungry all the time and I’m definitely glad that I have overflowing milk to feed him.
BUT TONIGHT, these two cute little humans tested my patience, every bit of my brain cells and my strength as a Mom.
So I usually make them take turns in drinking and tonight I fed Geralt first and put him to bed. He’s sleeping tight so it’s Zelda’s turn to drink. After few minutes, Geralt started to cry and then Z doesn’t want me to get and feed Geralt because she’s still drinking.
Imagine having a 2 year old daughter throwing a bit of tantrums because she wants to solo the milk while the little one is so hungry and he can’t wait longer anymore. Geeeez.
I was trying to calm Geralt while trying to talk to Zelda. After few minutes of talking and trying to convince my 2 year old, she finally gave in, she finally shared. I was able to feed Geralt on the left while she’s on the right and honestly first time breastfeeding in tandem made me look a messy cow with my messy hair and haggard face and it’s not instagramable worthy.
But feeding them at the same time is WORTH IT!
I DID IT!
I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!
It’s just one of the many tandems to come but for now I just want to drink lots of water, lay down on the bed and sleep.
Anyway, good night.
