Hi! I'm Shane mom to three very active boys. Theodore is 6. He nursed until he was 4ys. Issac is 4. He nursed until he was 2ys. And Harrison is 2 and still nurses. I nursed through my second pg and then tandum nursed for 2 yrs. The two older weaned when I was pg with #3. I was preparing to be tri nursing. Is there such a word? I found it very interesting that my second decided to stop the same time at my first. Must have wanted to do everything his older brother was doing.
I'm a stay at home mom. My husband is a outdoor education teacher in the public schools. We are homeschooling our boys. I'm a birth doula in a hospital based program. I'm working on slowly, slowly getting my childbirth education certification. And I aspire to be a midwife in the far, far, far future.
Breastfeeding has been a very important part of my parenting and there were no questions that I would do it. I had many problems with #1. He had sever tongue tie and needed surgery to be able to nurse. He had that at 1.5 months of age. #2 was a breeze. #3 had a high pallet and I got the worst nipple damage, clogged ducts and mastitis all in the the first week after giving birth.
Having support is what got me through each of my challenges. Having a Laction Consultant come to your home was key for me.
That would be some of me.
