“At the very beginning a baby doesn’t need that much milk to eat. I really want to stress that (a small amount) is perfectly fine … I mean, their tummy is tiny tiny.” (Alexis Allison | Fort Worth Report)
“You can do this. It will take time to learn the technique, and to know when your milk is going to come down and to know if you’re going to drip on the floor (you know, you might need extra padding). But you can do this. It’ll take some time. But it is so, so worth it, and your baby will feel incredibly close and bonded to you.” (Alexis Allison | Fort Worth Report)
