This is kind of an in between post and doesn't really have anything to do with weight loss. I'm excited because I finally sat down and figured out how to create the Picsart #treeoflife photo and I wanted to share mine! I think it became a big thing because it was meant to make people aware of breastfeeding. I myself didn't have a long breastfeeding journey. From the beginning, I struggled with Hadley to get her to latch and eventually ended up exclusively pumping for her for four months before my supply diminished.
I struggled for the first month to nurse Hadley before I had to go back to work and we switched to bottles. Once she started taking a bottle we didn't nurse as often and I eventually just started pumping. Because of this, I have two or three photos in total of me nursing her. I'm thankful that I have those because it's empowering to look back at them and know that I tried to do that for her. Amidst the struggle, we did have some incredible successes. It's awesome knowing that I provided her with the nutrients she needed and I gave her the best start in life that I could. I wanted to do something to commemorate so I created the following photos from Picsart. I couldn't decide which I liked better so I posted both.
