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.
