Katie Yeager Talks Breastfeeding Molli For 16 Months: “I Would Cry Because I Was So Happy”
Little Molli turns two tomorrow, and one of the things her mom, Katie Yeager, will miss the most is breastfeeding! The Teen Mom 3 star opened up to The Stir about her love of “extended breastfeeding” and doing it on TV.
“I went 16 months breastfeeding Molli,” she revealed. “Sometimes I wish I could still breastfeed her! It's one thing that I've always said: at least try. I sometimes would cry because I was so happy. That's one thing that I gave my daughter.”
The future reality starlet even donated her breast milk to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, to help mothers who couldn’t provide the same experience for their children.
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing.
“After I got through the first month, which was like the worst ever, I would cry and cry and cry — and once I got over that rough patch, I was like, I love this. I want to breastfeed forever!” she admitted.
Katie will be the first Teen Mom star to breastfeed “extensively” on-camera; though Kailyn Lowry, Briana Dejesus, and Alexandria Sekella are all fans of the parenting technique as well.
