Hi there fellow mommy's and breastfeeding superwomen!
I am graduating myself to the 3-12 month olds because I now have a 14 week old daughter.
We have breastfed from the word go! Minor issues in the begining but had those resolved quickly.
I have tremendous support, my mom loves to share and watch me nurse my peanut, because she wasn't able too. My husband is awesome, he reads the articles I show him and for once he listens just to what I say no questions lol.
She has gained leaps and bounds, I think she's advanced for her age but I'm partial
The doctors and nurses are awesome, they love her and my parenting plan.
I nurse on demand, she has a bottle 3 days a week, no problem, just started taking a paci, we never pushed one on her. I love love how everything is going. We also co-sleep, just her and I, daddy sleeps else where, which is yucky for me, I love sleeping with my husband, but she's only a baby once
I only wanted to share my experience and how this has inspired me to support other women and their decision to breastfeed. I've been told several times by girls my age, I'm 27, that it's gross, and sometimes "wow, really, your brave" or "wow, that has to hurt" but usually I get "eww, isn't it gross?" I can not believe there is this kind of reaction. I'm so proud of myself and our decision to give this gif to our daughter. I can not believe other women think its gross.
So I don't really have any questions, I just wanted to say hi, share my great experience, I would have given up if it weren't for the Le leche league. This is an amazing community and if I ever won the lottery, I would donate millions to this community!
Yay for nursing our little miracles I'm super proud
