Being a first-time mom can be a challenge. Actress Tatyana Ali discusses her challenges recently with Essence when it comes to breastfeeding.
“You try to get ready, but nothing can really prepare you for what actually goes on and what it’s like,” she said.
With all moms, breastfeeding can be a challenge. As Ali explains with her son, Edward Aszard Rasberry, breastfeeding is not the same for all babies.
“You know, it’s something that is not necessarily instinctive, like there are messes and there are different techniques and styles,” she added. “Then you have to learn the style of your baby and how much they want to eat. The learning curve has been huge.”
Nonetheless, her husband Vaughn Rasberry has helped her along the way and has been on diaper duty.
“He is awesome,” she told Essence. “I do feedings; he does diapers. That’s how we tag-team.”
