I am really surprised that I have not written more about my breastfeeding journey with Squeak. Maybe because it has been going so well. It seems like sometimes we only share things that are difficult in our lives. But don’t get me wrong. With four babies I have definitely had my share of breast infections, engorgements and clogged ducts. (OH MY)
This time around with Squeak I decided to relax more about breastfeeding, I stopped watching the clock and stressing about when she needed to nurse next and for how long. I have let her direct me when she is hungry and I don’t panic so much about what side to feed her first and so on. Squeak has also been really good at nursing. This has helped me immensely. Probably luck of the draw has played into this as well.
While getting ready to be away from Squeak for a few days I have been pumping a lot to have a milk supply for her. I started to notice a lot of soreness from that. It began to be super painful. I think I had my breast pump on too high of a speed and have corrected it now but it was really hurting me. I had remembered that I had been given some breastfeeding products and started using them right away These products are called Little Stinker. Isn’t that such a cute name? Little stinker is a fun company that have created all natural products for your baby and for use while breastfeeding.
The Natural Nursing Balm is seriously a life saver. It started helping me so quickly! I loved the fact that you do not have to wipe it off before nursing. It seriously soothed fast. It is all natural so you do not have to worry about it harming you or your baby. Another fun fact about it is you can also use it for lip balm. Really! I did and it worked great.
The other product for Nursing is the Cooling Breast Cream to apply around the nipple for instant cooling relief.
I want to also mention the Little Stinker Baby Butt spray. a vanilla and lavender spray to help eliminate nasty poop smell. It really helps with the smell!
*I was given these products in exchange for this review all opinions about it and sore breasts and poop smell our all mine. Isn’t motherhood glamorous?
