    Default 3 more days until my GOAL.....

    I never imagined 2wks ago, 4wks, even 8wks ago at the beginning I will be this far!!!

    Thursday the 11th my dd2 will be 8wks old. She and I have been working on this bf lifestyle for 8wks and lots of confusion, fears, tears, emotional break downs, happiness, love, hate....you get the idea.

    Now I am sitting here looking at her and smile ear to ear. She has reflux which is not fun but nursing is suppose to be the best ^_~ for her. I gave her formula the first 3wks at the most of 8oz in a week and after wards 4oz in a month a now I carry it the diaper bag as a crutch. CYA, because you never know what life holds for you and I want to be prepared.

    I now feel sorry for my sister whom I and many other family members pressured her to stop bf. (on too many med. and long long story but if it were to happen to her again or myself I would still tell her to stop bf)

    I am so blessed to have a supportive dh and family. It just melts my heart when ds comes right up and watches dd2 latch on and just watches and then feels it is okay to run a hot wheel over the mountain...

    Thanks and love to everyone who has been here to pick me up and help brush my knees. Who shared their personal stories and tips and to remind me I am normal mom with normal fears and I am allowed to have bad days.

    My next goal is 4 months (gets me through the holidays), 6 months (half way there and past few season), 10 months, and then 12months (weaning around 11months).

    Of course ths afternoon have been feeling down and headache and stuff. To the point of wanting to give her a bottle, however, I did not.

    Start around 11 months and then on her first birthday she loses the bottle and my breast....tradition. When dd1 and ds turned one the next morning no bottles.
