My first birthday as a breastfeeder!

Monday 29th April 2013

It was my 23rd birthday, so we went out for lunch to Verdi’s cafe/restaurant/ice cream parlour in Mumbles, Swansea. After eating most of a child-size home made pizza, Ethan decided he wanted some boob to wash it down with, so, of course, that’s exactly what he got!


I wore a high-necked embellished top from Kate Moss’s collection for Topshop (it’s old!) with a vest underneath to make feeding easy (I don’t care who sees my boobs, but no one is seeing my stretch marks!), and printed trousers from h&m, with nude ballet pumps from Topshop.

The week before, Ethan caught measles before we could vaccinate him. Luckily, he got over it super quickly, which the doctor put down to breastfeeding. He said he’d never seen a child with measles who was so ‘remarkably well’ despite being absolutely plastered in the measles rash. Nonetheless, it was quite worrying for him to be diagnosed with measles. Thankfully he’s totally recovered!

It’s fabulous weather here in Wales (for a change), so hopefully we will be partaking in some al fresco breastfeeding soon! Happy breastfeeding everyone!
