The 28-year-old wrote candidly that before becoming a mum, she was completely in the dark about what breastfeeding really involved.
“I got a lot of advice on everything from birthing to newborn care to nutrition, but no one ever really broke it down to me when it came to breastfeeding. Bottom line, it’s hard! Breastfeeding is like finding out that all of a sudden you can get bacon from your elbow,” admitted Rivera in a blog for people.com.
Naya married actor Ryan Dorsey, 32, in July last year and the couple welcomed their son in September.
The Hollywood star has opened up with refreshing honesty that so many mums will relate to.
“One minute there’s nothing going on with your perfectly perky boobs and the next a nurse is rolling yellow stuff out of your nipple and putting it in your baby’s mouth,” Rivera noted.
