Cheyenne Floyd took to her Instagram to open up about the difficulties with breastfeeding, newborn Ace.
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, Cheyenne shared a snap of herself wearing a white gown as she breastfed Ace.
“This week is about normalizing breastfeeding, raising awareness, & improving support for breastfeeding parents.”
“It focuses on educating, encouraging, and empowering those who are on their breastfeeding journey.”
Cheyenne stated that breastfed Ryder for 2 years and that she planned to do the same with Ace.
Cheyenne would reveal that she’s been having issues breastfeeding Ace:
“My current journey has been a lot harder, mentally & physically.”
“The first few weeks were extremely tough. As he would latch, I would be dreading the pain that would follow. My nipples cracked, bled, peeled, & I swear they were mad at me.”
“I was confused because they didn’t do this with my first experience breastfeeding & I was ashamed that it didn’t come as easy this time.”
“Breastfeeding is not easy, mothers need support, & to know they aren’t alone.”
She also opened up about how she and Ace have their “Good Days and Bad Days” and that she was committed to nursing as long as her body permitted it.
Cheyenne urged fans to share their experiences with breastfeeding:
“Not every breastfeeding journey looks the same. No path is better than the other. I believe every feed should be celebrated.”
Ace is currently two months old. She shares Ace with fiancé Zach Davis. She’s also the mother to Ryder (4) who she shares with her ex Cory Wharton.
Cory recently opened up about the hardships of accepting his program The Challenge, while parenting Ryder. Stating that the decision was tough to do because he would be away from Ryder and that in the end, he would always put her needs first.
