Amy Schumer is a Frank. The comedian, who recently in may gave birth to her son Gene with her husband Chris Fischer, appeared on the podcast “Informed pregnancy and parenting” and spoke about her struggle with breastfeeding and about his decision to switch his 7-month-old baby on baby food.
After a month of trying to breastfeed and even a meeting with an expert on breast-feeding, the mother decided to go ahead. “I have nothing left, I tried again and again. I just felt no impetus to make it happen. Then I start all over as first month,” she said, adding that she wanted her son got the colostrum which is the early breast milk and promotes the growth and health of babies.
“Then I said, “It’s not for me. It’s not for me, and I didn’t want to do it,” she confessed. “Some people just love it, and I’m so happy for them, and it just freaked me out. But then I also was proud that he did it and everything and got him the milk and everything. Then one day it occurred to me that I can stop. I said, “I’m going to stop.” And then every week I just removed one feeding”.
This decision, in fact, it was difficult for Sumer, which showed that struggling with the “pressure” to breastfeed, but in the end realized that she needed to make her health a priority. “You matter, and your child will be better if you’re right,” she said. “All the generations of my family have vskarmlivanie baby food, by the way.”
