Well, as a mother that breastfed for 17 months, I suppose it all starts that very day you squeeze a tiny human out of your body and have to keep them alive for the best part of 20 years. Its the most memorable day in any new mothers life. It's the day where it becomes the norm to have people (ok we mean midwives) squeezing, pinching or trying to bloody milk you. Its the complete juxtapose to the day before when you would never let anyone see you bra-less never mind nipples out poised ready for action.
It was my struggle to breastfeed my daughter, which led me on my journey to create Oh Me Oh Mama. I suffered intolerably with low milk supply, cracked, sore & painful nipples that i questioned my own ability to function properly as a mother. Was this normal? Does every one suffer like this?
I felt like the only solution given to me was to just grin and bear it.
Nope not me. I took matters into my own hands and scoured the internet day & night for ways to naturally increase my milk supply & heal my broken nipples. If it wasn't for the silicone breast pads & lanolin cream i stumbled across one sleepless night, I think my breast feeding journey would have ended a lot sooner than it did. It was these products that spurred me on to create Oh Me Oh Mama and the thought that if i’m struggling this much, then theres bound to other mamas in a similar position??
Sure enough there were and Oh Me Oh Mama was born.
Our mission is to make life just that little bit easier for new mamas at the start of their breastfeeding journey. So, we thought what better way to celebrate our favourite day of the week ‘Titty Tuesday’ than with the introduction of our new ‘Titty Tote’ bag which is THE MUST HAVE essential bag for any breastfeeding mama.
