But while Claire is the mom who gave birth, Steph trained her body to lactate in the months before the baby arrived and they both take turns breastfeeding her, something many people didn’t even know was possible.
Speaking to This Morning, Steph explainedthat she had researched other couples who managed to successfully do the same before she began to employ methods that made her breasts begin to lactate.
I started pumping regularly months before the baby was born. I also took a lot of fenugreek, breastfeeding biscuits and breastfeeding tea. As many natural things as I could to help with it,” Steph said.
The two actually went viral back in February for a series of photos taken by birth photographer Lacey Barratt that showed them taking turns feeding LJ.
