    Default We made it!!!

    Today my daughter has turned 3 months old! When we set out on this journey, we had such a rough start that I didn't dare to hope that we would make it this far, and yet here we are!

    We survived her bad latch (and my horribly cracked and painful nipples), around-the-clock constant nursing for the first 10 weeks of her life, and two plugged milk ducts. I know that many moms deal with much more difficult challenges, but to me these felt overwhelming and scary.

    I'm really thankful for the incredible support I got on this forum (I'm sure I'll turn to it many more times) and for the advice provided by my local LLL leader, who was absolutely incredible, patient, and supportive in fielding my panicked phone calls.

    Congrats! IMO you made it through a really intense time and if you can do that you can keep it up for sure!

    Great job!! The first three months are really tough - well, they were for me, too. It does get easier. Good job, mama!
