Hilary Duff Opens Up About Struggles With New Baby
American actress, Hilary Duff has opened up about her breastfeeding struggles with her baby Mae. The 33-year-old Younger star spoke with Dr Elliot Berlin for a post-birth edition of Informed Pregnancy Podcast, sharing how she’s handling postpartum life after welcoming daughter Mae James on 24th March. Duff also shares daughter Banks Violet, 2, with husband Matthew Koma, plus she’s mom to son Luca Cruz, 9.
“I’d say it was the easiest with Luca. All of the babies latch really great, I’m just not a huge milk producer, so it’s emotional for me,” says the mom of three. “In fact, this is the first baby that I haven’t supplemented with yet, so I’ve just exclusively been breastfeeding her. I’m going to keep trying that for a couple of weeks.”
She continues, “Just still painful and it’s hard, and it’s even harder having the other two that I know need me so much, and this takes up such a huge portion of the day. It seems like every 20 minutes I’m feeding the baby, and I have to be sitting in one place, and Banks is still not quite old enough to understand, even though she has been amazing with the baby. It’s just hard.”

Duff says anxiety about not producing enough breastmilk for her baby tends to impact her output.
She explains, “Right now, I don’t know that I’m not producing as much as I need, but I think since I haven’t in the past, I have tons of anxiety that I’m not, and that she’s not getting enough, and then I’m in my head, and then I don’t feel like enough, and then the spiral continues from there.”
“I’m not even at week three yet, so I need to just sit back and chill and trust that my body is doing the right thing. And she’s gaining weight,” the actress/singer adds.
