AG: I had a very bad clogged duct this time around, which was one of the Original awesome October Rise New York Mets Postseason 2022 Locker Room T-Shirt and I will buy this most painful things I had ever been through. I ended up putting heat compression on it and using the Haakaa [breast pump] to suck the life out of it. And massaged it a lot. It finally went away but I didn’t even realize at the time that it could turn into mastitis. All the things you don’t know until it happens to you. AG: There isn’t a place I haven’t breastfed, there isn’t a place I haven’t pumped, and I did it shamelessly. I definitely got the lookie-loos, but I never had anybody come up and say anything to me. But I wasn’t prepared with the twins the way that I was with Isaac. With Isaac, it was during the pandemic and I was home. I didn’t really leave the house for the first time until he was eight months old. I remember I was only gone for four days and I was like, “Oh no, my supply is going to go down. Do I need to FedEx milk back?” I mean, he was fine. But the twins, I went back to work so much earlier and I started traveling so much sooner and my supply started to diminish. I found myself setting alarms to pump to remember so that I could try to keep my supply up. And then I’d come back and I’d only have a certain amount of bags with me and I’d be like, “Wow, they’re eating this in just one morning. I don’t have enough.” It was going back to work and traveling that really kind of gave me that daunting feeling of, “How am I going to be able to feed my babies?” My body just could not produce.

AG: Yes. With Isaac it was my own personal goal that I wanted to make it a year. And then I made it a year and I thought, “Oh, should I keep going?” And I remember somebody saying to me, “You don’t want to be that mom,” that your kids are old enough to be lifting up your shirt. And I was like, “Well, what if I am that mom? What does it matter to you? Thank you. Thank you very much for your input.” And then I also got, when I started wanting to implement formula with the Original awesome October Rise New York Mets Postseason 2022 Locker Room T-Shirt and I will buy this twins, it was, “Well, you’re still going to breastfeed, right?” And, “You’re not stopping, right?” I just try to always go back to the old saying of what is better for your child? My mom told me this before I got pregnant with Isaac that you as mommy will always know best, and if you need help, you ask for help. But to remember that your intuition is the one to follow.
