Popular Nigerian Singer, Mocheddah has opened up on the struggles she has faced after attaining motherhood.
According to the singer, her mental health took a nosedive because her milk supply has been low hence breastfeeding has sometimes proven a difficulty.
Her post reads ;
“My Journey to re-lactation.
I struggled with my milk supply the 1st week after birth like this was hard!
Trying to get the baby to latch, being new at this, being unable to sit because of stitches and hemorrhoids.
My mental health and breastfeeding weren’t a great pair.
So I took my time and did what i could, so obviously, my supply dropped drastically… I could barely pump a full ounce in one day.
Now I’m feeling up to it again, so I started trying to re-lactate a couple of days ago… getting her to latch and pumping several times.
I got nothing for the first two days (As in not a drop)”.
She added that staying happy for herself and her baby is what is important to her so she will keep trying to increase her milk supply for as long as her mental health permits her.
