After a tricky start, Prince George has fully taken to breastfeeding — and Kate is stocking up her wardrobe with breastfeeding-friendly maternity clothes! Get all the updates on mama and baby here!
Kate Middleton was under a lot of pressure to breastfeed — before she even gave birth! Now that she has had a few days at home with her little boy Prince George, she is already fast becoming an old pro!
Kate Middleton Is Breastfeeding Prince George
Reports from royal insiders say that Kate has started breastfeeding — and that hungry little Prince George is developing well.
“It would be fair to say that Prince George has a healthy appetite. He is a very hungry little boy,” a senior royal source tells the Mirror’s Sunday People.
The source also explains that Kate has gotten the hang of breastfeeding and will continue feeding this way:
I gather there were some difficulties at first – there often can be, as new mums can get a little tense. But after some help from the midwife, they both caught on very quickly. As far as I can tell, Kate finds it very relaxing and George is just like any other little baby. He can’t get enough. And they all certainly know when he’s hungry – his screams are very difficult to ignore. But don’t expect Kate to be photographed breast-feeding. She does not want to become a pin-up for the breast-feeding lobby. She feels that it is a matter of personal choice, and that new mums should do whatever feels right for them and their baby.
The source also reveals that Kate is hoping to be completely reliant on breastfeeding for the baby’s early months, ditching the bottle in favor of the more traditional route.
Kate Middleton Orders Breastfeeding-Style Dresses
Kate’s decision to breastfeed is definitely a personal one, but Kate has decided to make it her lifestyle. After being spotted in a highly popular Seraphine maternity dress — that already has a one-month waiting list, if you’re looking to buy! — has “ordered a couple of breastfeeding styles,” reports Cecile Renaud, owner of Seraphine.
