Gemma Atkinson and her breastfeeding post

The actress talked about her breastfeeding her baby and how it helped double her size. Gemma wrote:

“Some of us are C section Mums, some of us are water birth mums, some are assisted birth mums.

“Some of us are bottle feeding mums and some of us are breast feeding mums.

“Whichever you are, YOU ARE DOING GREAT! I’ve found the last month a whole new ball game and I’m constantly learning new things along the way.

“I personally chose to breast feed Mia and at first it was tough, and tiring and at times frustrating for us both. We persevered and eventually it clicked. She piled on her weight and almost doubled in size.”

She added that though nipples maybe sometimes a bit sore after breastfeeding the baby, nipple balm can relieve the pain and soothe it. She has even switched to breastfeeding her baby at night and feels good about it. Gemma, 34 wrote further:

“When I switch to bottle I’ve been told to stock up on cabbage leaves for soothing so hopefully they work too!”

Her fans praised her for this post.

A few days back, Gemma had spoken about the sleepless nights after Mia’s birth. She had said in a posted video:

“Mia is asleep and Norman [her other dog] is down the stairs, so I’m having a bit of one-on-one with Olly Bolly, because I don’t want him to feel left out and I think he has done a little bit today.”

“So we had that long-awaited night where baby didn’t want to sleep,”

“You just wanted to chill and make funny little noises like a T-Rex with your eyes open, having a little play for almost four hours.”

But she was happy to share baby duties, with her boyfriend Gorka Marquez and stated:

“Papa’s is home tonight so be awake all you like. @Gorka_Marquez is on the night feeds. #SorryGorks.”
