Slow down, Ember Roloff! The littlest Little People, Big World star is already six months old — and we can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. Proud mama Audrey Roloff took to Instagram to share her latest milestones, and we’re so happy the little one is now healthy. Watch the video above to see the photo!
The 26-year-old has been open about her battle with mastitis — inflammation of the breast that is caused by an infection — and in January, she shared an update on her progress with breastfeeding. “Just a little encouragement for anyone struggling on their breastfeeding journey,” Auj wrote in an Instagram Story. “I was only able to pump MAYBE one ounce the first two months after having Ember. I fed 15 hours of my day and it hurt and was so hard. But here we are at five months pumping eight ounces like it’s nothin [sic].”
In a separate video, the new mama added, “It took me a solid two months, maybe two and a half months before I really started to see an increase in my supply and breastfeeding became a lot easier.” She continued, “Since delivering Ember, I struggled with mastitis on and off. I was severely engorged. On top of that, Ember had a really severe tongue tie that we had to get surgically fixed about two or three weeks after she was born. Before that, I was having a lot of blistering and bruising.”
Thankfully, Auj didn’t go through it alone! Her faithful husband, Jeremy Roloff, was by her side and they’ve both adjusted to their new roles as parents. The couple is usually pretty active on social media, but they explained why they were initially quiet on Instagram following Ember’s birth. “For now we’re resting at home soaking In the present — honored that we’ve been entrusted with this little life,” he wrote.
