I am a mum of two gorgeous boys aged 8 and 2 years. My breastfeeding journey has been an enjoyable one but with some challenges. My first son self weaned at 21 months and I’m still breastfeeding my youngest. With the support of my partner, family and tutors I was able to continue my studies part time and enjoy the special bond with my youngest by taking him to class. I also experienced challenges and support when returning to my busy job. I know that breastfeeding isn’t always easy but once you get through the challenges it is a wonderful thing and I want to help other women have those positive experiences.
