Breastfeeding - Easy Lactation Bites

Before Little J hit the one-year-old milestone, he was fully breastfed. I never was one of those lucky mummies that seemed to produce ample milk so I was always playing catch-up in terms of pumping for his needs while I pulled 10-12 hour days in the office.

Bring wine for the stressed mama! Wait... none for the breastfeeding mama please! 😉

A few things kept me sane and kept my supply going even in the midst of all that craziness:

1. My breastpump. What would I do without it?!

2. My pumping bra. A working mama’s lifesaver!

3. Lactation Bites. To chase the noms away. breastfeeding is hungry work!
