Being a mother of 4 children under 7 years old is very rewarding but also very stressful. Life is hectic and most of the time its a battle to get anything done!. My youngest is almost 5 months old and is breastfeed, this is the first time though i have gotten this far and i am so happy and proud of myself, every week that goes by is an achievement. I had trouble with my other 3 children, my 1st son i struggled to get him latched on properly in gave up in the end my 2nd son had reflux i put him on karicare ar. I b/f my daughter for about 3 months comp with formula as she was a screamer so i didnt know what the deal was i found out she had a milk allergy so i put her on soy formula and weaned her off the boob..and baby boy #4 has been a breeze thankfully ..so glad i got to experience this.

  • It is not easy . I come from a family of 6 and my mother had three of us 1 year apart ! It is nice to have siblings close together so hopefully lots of family bonding .


  • exellent super story


  • All bubs are different and so is breast feeding.


  • More kids does create more stress for the family, but it is worth it in the end.


  • I know all about the stress of having 4 kids under 7 as I have the same but my youngest is 1 an a half. It can get at times but u manage I guess great job on the breast feeding though, I breast feed the longest for my last too it was for 6an a half months.


  • That’s great I found it hard to breast feed cause I didn’t predict much milk I also I 4 children as it is stressful but rewarding
