A mother from California is facing the world’s toughest job: breastfeeding her children.
In a world where women can breastfeed anywhere, even in the toilet, this is a challenging and unique task for women.
It’s an exciting time in breastfeeding, but for some mothers it can be a stressful and overwhelming experience.
The woman who lives on a dairy farm in California, whose name has been changed to protect her privacy, is a mother of four children aged five, six, seven and eight.
Her eldest daughter, who is now nine, has a special need to nurse, and her other children are also breastfeeding.
“It’s a lot of work to do,” she says.
“You have to get out and do things with them.”
Mothers of six, six and six-year-olds, with their newborns, are often the first ones to visit the bathroom.
In some cases, the women can’t even use the toilet.
“If I have a toddler, I just have to sit down and let her breastfeed, and if she’s a little older, I can use the sink,” says the mother.
“Sometimes I’m doing a lot to feed the babies and then I have to come out.”
She’s also breastfeeding in public, which can be dangerous for babies.
“Sometimes I’ll come into the house and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to breastfeed,’ and I’ve got a baby, and I’ll breastfeed him,” she explains.
“The whole time, they’re screaming and yelling, ‘Get away from me, get away from my baby!'”
It can be stressful.
The babies can be crying, they can be screaming.
It can get really scary, and you don’t know what’s going to happen.
“It can also be a daunting task, particularly if the mother doesn’t know how to properly breastfeed.”
I’m trying to do the best thing I can, I’m not thinking, ‘Oh, I might have to take my clothes off, get into a bathroom and breastfeed’ or anything like that,” she admits.”
So it can get pretty scary.
“If it’s the first time that I’m breastfeeding, I have that anxiety, but it’s definitely not something that I feel that I want to be embarrassed about.”
And I’m really, really proud of myself.
“A few years ago, she had an allergic reaction to the cow’s milk, so she had to take medication to prevent her children from getting a severe allergic reaction.
But she’s been doing it ever since.”
For me, I think that I think I should start the page to let people know that I can do this and I am doing it properly,” she said.”
People need to be able to go to the bathroom, but they can’t get to the toilet because of this.
“It’s not an easy job, especially when it comes to a young child.”
When I have the baby in the next day or two, I don’t have the time to do everything,” she explained.”
This is a huge time in my life, and there’s a baby who’s just getting ready to go into a nursing home.
“She says she’s now thinking of giving up breastfeeding altogether.”
There’s no reason for me to do it anymore,” she adds.”
But I think it’s just time.
