Hilary Duff is Struggling with This After Giving Birth to Daughter Mae

Hilary Duff is getting real about life after pregnancy.

In an interview on the Informed Pregnancy Podcast, the 33-year-old Younger actress admitted that she is struggling with breastfeeding after welcoming daughter Mae with husband Matthew Koma back on March 24.

Hilary and the 33-year-old musician are also parents to daughter Banks, 2, while Hilary shares son Luca, 9, with ex-husband Mike Comrie.

“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,” Hilary shared. “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.”

Hilary continued, “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.”

Hilary then shared that her anxiety about not producing enough breastmilk has impacted her mental state.

“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,” Hilary added.
