We had the good fortune of connecting with Delilah Tamez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Delilah, as a parent, what do you feel is the most meaningful thing you’ve done for them?
As a parent I feel that breastfeeding & bed-sharing have played a big part in my baby’s development. Breastfeeding is helping him build a better gut & immune system, boosting brain development, & giving him all the nutrition he needs. Co-sleeping has helped my son sleep better & longer at night & also reduces stress hormones. There are so many benefits for mamas while bed-sharing as well!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Being a breastfeeding & motherhood content creator has helped me connect with other moms that ask me for advice & I am able to help them on their new journeys. I absolutely love helping others, and understanding and learning breastfeeding with your child isn’t always quick & easy! Having this new passion of mine has encouraged me to go to school to become an IBCLC. I also want to encourage all the mamas that come across my page to unapologetically feed their children & end the stigma of needing to cover up something woman have been doing since the beginning of time! It’s 2022, why are we still shaming something natural? #DropTheCover

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
In the Prescott area there are so many beautiful places to see! Downtown Prescott has amazing restaurants like La Planchada or La Bruzza’s Ristorante! Whiskey Row is fun to visit at night on weekends to get drinks with friends! I absolutely love all the beautiful Prescott scenery, the Granite Dells is one of my favorite spots to go visit with friends & family. Saturday nights you can find me at a party at The Warehouse Event Center!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My boyfriend, Felipe, has helped me feel comfortable in my breastfeeding journey & has supported me in all decisions regarding our son.

He has encouraged me to feed our child whenever, wherever we go & not care if people get mad, because I am feeding our baby! He always supports me & I am grateful for our 6 years together!
