My name is Jennifer and I am a mother of 2 of the greatest kids ever! I have a 9 month old son and a 2 year old daughter. I had both of my children at a really young age. As of now, I am only 18 years old. It was hard for me to watch my body change the way that it did going through pregnancy as well as puberty at the same time but somehow I got through it.I breast fed my daughter for about 3 months and then decided bottle feeding was better b/c I had to go back to school. Lets just say I had a very good milk supply and it came through pads, burping cloths, or whatever else I could think of to put in my bra.When I had my son, I breast fed him for about 6 weeks or so and ultimately decided that the bottle was more convenient.In time I have become at peace with the way my body looks. I have to admit though, being 18, there is alot of pressure on me from media and peers to look a certain way but I have came to realize that I am me and Im going to love myself and my body anyway.

I think you’re a beautiful women and no matter what people, media, or others think you should be darn proud of yourself for being a role model to your daughter especailly. She looks up to you, and to have that convidence she will grow up a strong women. I have 2 kids my oldest is 5 and the youngest 9 months, as I just had a baby I’m now learning to accept my body.
Your babies are so beautiful!!! Congratulations. I like the point you made about going through puberty at the same time as pregnancy. Wow. That’s really powerful.
I have a suggestion about the leaking – if you have another baby and lots of milk – try cutting up a sanitary pad and putting that in your bra instead of a nursing pad. They show through more, but you won’t leak out!
You are a beautiful person and with a good head on her shoulder. very inspiring, I know what you went through it was the same way for me.
I’ve been reading these for about a week now. I have an 8 month old daughter. I haven’t made one comment yet but I just had to tell you that you are gorgeous.
