Michelle Yola tearfully opens up about her struggle as a new mum
I was in a lot of pain...
This was until she opened up about a struggle new mums go through, getting your baby to latch on your breast. A process that is important as if it’s not done properly, it can make feeding painful.
Taking to Instagram, Michelle disclosed that she had resorted to the bottle after all attempts to make her baby latch failed.
“I am so sad but I had to do what’s best for my daughter. After trying and trying different positions and failing to properly breastfeed her today I had to pump and introduced her to the bottle, I was in a lot of pain and she couldn’t latch. I will take a break and give it another try in a few weeks.” A teary Yola revealed.
Yola is not the only celebrity who has gone public about her struggle with getting her baby to latch as Paul Mwaura’s wife Evaline Momanyi recently did so.
“My biggest fear was breastfeeding, fear that I won’t have milk to breastfeed. My diet was always top notch to make sure I can breastfeed well with enough milk supply once the guest checks in.
Well....out of all research I had done...nothing had prepared me. What about when you have milk....but the baby refuses to latch. Confusion, Confusion....Frustration as every nurse and lactation expert pulls your boobs and nipples to try to make the baby latch. How about that. I have managed somehow but did some more digging and different people handle it different ways!” Evaline recently wrote
