Breastfeeding is tough. It is physically strenuous. So for the first week of August, globally, breastfeeding awareness is celebrated to raise awareness and support breastfeeding across different levels of society.
According to WABW, Breastfeeding improves the health, survival, and well-being of infants, children, and their mothers. Therefore, breastfeeding is one of the best investments for saving lives and improving the health, social and economic development of individuals and nations.
As a former nursing mother, I know firsthand how difficult breastfeeding and pumping can be. I suffered from postpartum depression after losing my mom to breast cancer and dealing with latch issues. After my son was not gaining enough weight due to tongue and lip tie, my breastfeeding journey almost ended. But, with determination, I reached out to a lactation consultant who helped me build my milk supply, and successfully I was able to breastfeed my son for over a year.
The first months of motherhood aren’t easy—especially sleepless nights of breastfeeding or pumping. So today and every day, I celebrate your sacrifices to nourish your baby. Oh La Lari® was created because mothers deserve to feel pretty with sexy lingerie while breastfeeding or pumping.
I believe moms deserve more than the frumpy nursing bras and tanks. Instead, you should rock the same high-quality and fashionable pieces you loved before giving birth. I empower you to take sexy back one intimate at a time.
