How to Navigate Breastfeeding a Toddler - Serenity Kids

August 16, 2020 1 min read

From co-founder and CEO, Serenity Carr: I struggled to nurse Della from the beginning. I had a Cesarean with her, she had a lip tie that went undiagnosed for a while, then I also suffered from postpartum sleep apnea and some mild depression which also made it harder. Compound all of that with trying to get our company off the ground and it was just really hard on us and it was a constant struggle to keep up my supply. Thankfully we had some amazing mamas who donated milk for her and we also used Sammy’s milk infant formula to supplement as well… then at 9 months Della weaned herself. I was heartbroken. I had always envisioned breastfeeding much longer, probably until 2 or so like many mamas I know. But Della had different plans. So all that being said, I have been intrigued and curious to learn more about breastfeeding a toddler. Kristen, our community manager, IBCLC in training, and one of the mamas who donated milk for Della, is still breastfeeding her daughter, Juniper, who is over two now and I’m excited for her to share her breastfeeding journey with you all.
