During the nine months she was pregnant with Birdie, Simpson experienced a lot of health issues including severely swollen ankles and feet and was hospitalized for bronchitis multiple times.
Simpson is also currently recovering from a C-section but is thriving in the breastfeeding department. She said regarding Birdie’s birth:
Recovering from a C-Section is no joke! I’m feeling thankful for these two older siblings looking over their new baby sister. I think we all get so carried away with the excitement of having a new baby that we forget that we are going in for major surgery. Then on top of that, we get home from the hospital, have to recover from the surgery, balance our new life as a parent to three kids and be a wife
However, the seasoned mom later bragged about her milk production on Instagram calling it a “success”:
Her followers flocked to the comment section of the post to congratulate the now mom of three:
You go girl! Impressive for so early on. I am 8 months in and I never pump that much.
Nice!! That’s hard for many new moms in the beginning.
This is the only thing I’ve legit ever seen on social media that’s made me jealous. What I wouldn’t have giveeeen for such a successful pump!
However, other followers also suggested that “success” can also be defined as simply having a fed baby:
Every [one] does what they need to do to feed their baby. Just remember it’s not failure if you don’t pump or breastfeed. It’s only failure if you don’t feed your baby anything at all. #fedisbest
I think success is your baby being fed no matter how you do it. The measure of success is not how much you can breastfeed, or if you can at all, just love your babies. To all the mothers reading this and struggling with breastfeeding, don’t get discouraged! It doesn’t work out for everyone.
What are your thoughts on moms showing off their breast milk?
