    Talking Ben is 1!

    I can't believe my little guy is one. I am so thankful to have been able to breastfeed him so long while working full time (started when he was 3 months old). I have a very supportive company and am lucking to have my own office which is very private. We quit supplementing him with formula at 8 weeks old and just introduced cows milk a couple of weeks ago. So he received most of his nutrition from breast milk for many months.

    Now I am ready to pump wean. But plan to continue to nurse him in the morning and evening. He just had his checking and is doing well. Caught up a little on height (he was 5% at last check) and is not 10% on height and weight. Head size is and has always been off the charts, but that is normal for babies in my family.

    Thanks for all the support.
