Hollywood star, Tamera Mowry-Housley thought to offer hope to mothers struggling with breastfeeding by sharing a picture of herself doing so in the nursery with her daughter Ariah that included the caption, “Breastfeeding Ariah has been amazing, in large part because I learned a lot from my experience with Aden.” The beautiful actress shared the photo on her Instagram page. The mum of two also shared her experience on breastfeeding in a blog; she said that breastfeeding her first, Aden had been hard;
“It didn’t come as naturally as we’re meant to believe. Aden wasn’t latching properly, which meant I experienced soreness, my nipples were callused and I was in pain for about 8 weeks.
“It took some time, but I finally learned how to get the right latch, and then breastfeeding was much easier.”
With her second, Ariah, Tia Mowry’s twin and The Real co-host says of worries brought over from her experience with Aden,
“I wanted to be sure that I could give her my antibodies, feed her nutrients and give her enough of my milk to help prevent her from getting sick. Thankfully my worries were unwarranted. I took everything I learned from my experience with Aden and Ariah had the perfect latch from day one.”
She also acknowledged the place of bottle feeding for babies so inclined,
“Women must do what’s right for their baby–which can include bottle feeding of course. In that case, I’ve discovered that Gentle Gerber formula is best!” She expressed her opinion.
