    Default Wow, we've made it HERE!

    Good evening, ladies,

    I just feel I have to share some of my happiness... DD and I have made it to a year bfing with no formula whatsoever! Yeay!

    We're only nursing now 2-3 times a day (morning, late afternoon and evening), but we're still going strong. I have to hail a HUGE thank you to you ladies as it was in the forums here that I found the support and help needed when I was having a difficult time bfing DS 5 years ago - all that support and advice has stayed with me to allow me to have such a wonderful and successful bfing relationship with DD now.

    So thank you ladies!

    Yay! Congrats!
    We're in the same boat, and I remember you from almost 5 years ago with OUR son, and then last summer with OUR DD.

    Congrats! We just made it to a year last week, also no formula. Yeah! We still nurse about 4x day, morning, afternoon, bedtime, and once overnight (all going to sleep!).

    Congrats to you all, yay! I wish I had some friends close by who are hitting this milestone. I'm pretty sure almost all the new moms I know are formula feeders except one and she's >10 years younger than I am, with different interests.

    We will be celebrating 1 year BF no formula in a couple weeks. I work F/T and my LO still nurses like crazy morning, evening, overnight and weekends. No slow down in sight and she is a serious shirt tugger so I think we'll be going awhile. I love our BF relationship though I sure think about giving up that pump!

    Awesome!!! Job well done, mama. Not that you're actually done, of course!
