    Default Just wanted to share

    I was initially skeptical of how well breastfeeding would work for me and my son. There were several moments where I thought, "This is it, it's over; there is no way we can keep it going now..." but then I met my 1st goal: 3 months. Then I hit 6, 8, 9 months...and I will admit I didn't know if we could keep it going until he was a year...it seemed like an eternity away. Well here I am 4 breastpumps & many sleepless nights later to say that Duglen will be 1 in a few days and we are still going He is slowing down to 1 or 2 feedings a day, but I'm ok with that because we've already achieved what I thought was impossible.

    Thanks for your support because there were nights I looked to ya'all for answers, guidence & support.

    Well done, mama! It's awesome when someone not only achieves their initial nursing goal but also moves so far beyond it. Do you think you'll continue on past age 1? I personally love toddler nursing- for me it's the cherry on the sundae.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
