Sarah & motherhood:
In a relationship for 15 years and married for almost 7 years, Sarah is the eldest of a family of 4 children with very small age differences. Growing up alongside his siblings has always made him want to start his own family.
Her vision for the future with her husband? Together of course and with little toddlers running around them.
“I have always loved children and been comfortable with them. So being a mom is a continuation of things! "
Arthur (4 and a half years old) and Louis (3 years old) were born from this wish to start a family! And the names of their little boys were not chosen by chance ...
« For our eldest we chose the first name Arthur (for the legend of King Arthur) and his middle name, Hugo (for the illustrious committed author, Victor Hugo). For our second son, we named him Louis (for history ... but also and above all for my grandfather Luigi, who died shortly after our marriage) and his middle name Paul (for my husband's grandfather, who also died shortly after our marriage). For our little princess: it's not decided yet! »
Sarah and her companion chose the first name of their little wonders based on the historical and literary universe important to them, not to mention a little tribute to their loved ones!
Sarah & her breastfeeding:
« I breastfed Arthur for 10 months. 4 months exclusively then breast pump / artificial milk supplement. As for my second son Louis, he is still working to breastfeed after almost 3 years. »
Difficulties related to breastfeeding:
"For my 1er As a child, I had difficulty breastfeeding due to the poor training of doctors on breastfeeding. Arthur's weight gain was deemed insufficient and I was more than prompted to supplement ... confusion ensued that I could not reverse. Weaning quickly followed even though I continued to express my milk for a while ...
For Louis, the second, I got more training and information. Despite a premature birth and a cesarean section, my son never had a single bottle or formula. From maternity, I expressed my milk to supplement it because it was quickly exhausted at the breast. Better informed, I plotted and followed her weight on the WHO breastfed babies curve and was thus able to assert myself in my choice of breastfeeding in front of the pediatrician. "
Long-term breastfeeding, a choice?
«I did not choose long breastfeeding. I chose not to cut it short to match society's standards. Breastfeeding allowed me with my 2nd of recover much faster after the cesarean section and to create a link that had been interrupted by the traumatic childbirth and the 12 hours of separation (pre-eclampsia and help syndrome).»
