La Organización Mundial de la Salud recomienda a las mujeres amamantar durante seis a dos años, con el objetivo de garantizar el crecimiento y desarrollo del recién nacido. Sin embargo, ¿cómo conseguirlo si la mamá trabaja?, ¿alguien se ha puesto a pensar lo qué implica dar pecho cuando se tiene horarios, actividades y obligaciones? Sí, y no estás sola, incluso las famosas lo viven, muestra Hilary Duff.
«¡Incluso si tuviera el lujo de estar en mi propia habitación, podría considerarlo "descanso" porque tienes que sentarte en posición vertical para que la leche fluya hacia las botellas! Además, una máquina agresiva que produce un sonido molesto, hace eco en tu cabeza día y noche».

THIS ONE’S FOR THE LADIES Just a few thoughts that I wanted to share on Breast-feeding. Last week was my last week nursing Banks (my six month old) I am a working mom of two. My goal was to get my little girl to six months and then decide if I (and her of course) wanted to keep going. Let me tell you. Pumping at work sucks. I had zero down time and am usually pumping in a hair and make up trailer while four hands work to get me ready for the next scene with lots of other people around. Even if I had the luxury to be in my own room, it’s not even considered a “break” because you have to sit upright for the milk to flow into the bottles! Plus you are having your damn nipples tugged at by an aggressive machine that makes an annoying sound, that echoes through your head day and night (I swear that machine and I had many conversations at midnight and 3 am)! Ttttthen having to find someplace to sterilize bottles and keep your milk cold (ok I’m done with that rant lol)! Anyway, I didn’t know this because with Luca I didn’t work until he was about nine months old, so I didn’t pump very often. Your milk supply drastically drops when you stop feeding as often and lose the actual contact and connection with your baby (😞). So I was eating all the feunugreek goats butt blessed thistle fennel cookies/drops/shakes/pills I could get my hands on! It was maddening. (Does fenugreek make anyone else smell like maple syrup and rubber gloves?...not chill) With all of this complaining, I want to say I enjoyed (almost) every moment of feeding my daughter. Felt so lucky to be so close to her and give her that start. I know many women are not able to and for that I am sympathetic and very grateful that I could. For six wonderful months. But I needed a break. I was going to break. With the stress of a dropping milk supply and a baby that was getting bored or not caring about nursing when I was available to. I was sad and frustrated and feeling like a failure all of the time. When really I’m a bad ass rock star. Moms get high on feeling like superwoman...because we are! Doing too much, because we can!

Muchas madres, para dar leche materna a sus nenes y seguir laborando se extraen este líquido a través de máquinas de succión, que de acuerdo a la artista son dolorosas.
«¡Te están arrancando los malditos pezones! ¡Luego, tener que encontrar un lugar para esterilizar los biberones y mantener la leche fría!».
Hilary Duff es madre de dos bellos niños: Luca Cruz, que es su primogénito y fruto de su unión con Mike Comrie, y Banks Violet, que nació en octubre del 2018, y es respuesta del amor que experimenta la cantante y Matthew Koma.

I’ve been wondering for a long time if I would ever share this video as it is extremely personal.... it was so absolutely lovely and rewarding(and shocking) that after giving birth to my baby girl we hugged ...for the first time, In my mind I like to believe that she was saying good job mom. Go team go. We did it. Together. Matt provided such a safe calm strength, my mommy and sissy were there to cheer me on, and of course my birth angels to make sure all was well and big brother (downstairs deep in legos). I cannot believe this day was only 5 months ago!! It seems like B has been here with us all along. The time is already going so fast..she tried avocado yesterday! Anyway... feeling blessed for this full hectic life and all the people in it. Happy 5 months Banks (oh and thanks for quitting colic) that was a doozy ( @rebeccacoursey_photosandfilm )
La artista no ha dejado a un lado su vida profesional, simplemente ha decidido vivir al máximo su maternidad y ser vocera del significado que tiene.
Por ello la actriz, a través de sus cuentas sociales, ha expresado no sólo los dilemas que enfrenta una madre sino posibles soluciones a ellos.
