Now this is something that a lot of mothers can relate to. Actress and singer Hilary Duff says that she can’t help but feel super emotional whenever she is breastfeeding her newborn daughter, Mae. She opened up about the process in a new episode of Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast. Here’s what she has to say.
Hilary welcomed baby Mae with her husband Matthew Koma just last month. And while everyone has settled in really well, she does worry about many things whenever she’s breastfeeding her baby girl.
Hilary Duff Says Breastfeeding Her Newborn Has Made Her Super Emotional
“I’d say it was the easiest with Luca,” she explained. “All of the babies latch really great, I’m just not a huge milk-producer, so it’s emotional for me. In fact, this is the first baby that I haven’t supplemented with yet, so I’ve just exclusively been breastfeeding her. I’m going to keep trying that for a couple of weeks.”
She added, “Just still painful and it’s hard, and it’s even harder having the other two that I know need me so much, and this takes up such a huge portion of the day. It seems like every 20 minutes I’m feeding the baby, and I have to be sitting in one place, and Banks is still not quite old enough to understand, even though she has been amazing with the baby. It’s just hard.”
Hilary also says that she’s been dealing with a lot of anxiety, simply because she doesn’t know if she is producing enough milk for her baby girl.
“Right now, I don’t know that I’m not producing as much as I need, but I think since I haven’t in the past, I have tons of anxiety that I’m not, and that she’s not getting enough, and then I’m in my head, and then I don’t feel like enough, and then the spiral continues from there,” she explained.
“I’m not even at week three yet, so I need to just sit back and chill and trust that my body is doing the right thing. And she’s gaining weight.”
