    Default I Made It!!!

    I haven't been over here in a bit thanks to an ice storm, no power for 10 days and then a holiday trip to Minnesota!

    Anyway, I made it. The Boy turned 1 on the 19th of December, and we nurse on!!! I am going to try to pump wean in the next few (or 6) months, but continue nursing when we're together.

    I was nervous about his well-check, but the doctor caught that I was still nursing, said good, and continued on! Yeah!!!

    Oh, and I have been trying to get The Boy to take the breastmilk in a sippy at daycare, and while DHS visited the daycare (nothing wrong, just a "regular" surprise visit or something like that), the director asked about the BM in the sippy and Blood-borne pathogens, etc, and DHS told them there was nothing they could do to stop me from doing it. I was prepared to defend my position, and the daycare has always been accomodating, and I am sure it wouldn't have gotten ugly, but it was nice to see the state agency tell them that they have no standing...especially in a state that does not have a high breastfeeding rate. So, yeah for OK DHS.

    Nursing The Boy for 1 year...and still going strong! I kicked the pump out the door though!

    Oh, and I'm a cloth convert. Late in life. But only at home. Daycare isn't having it.

    Department of Human Services. They are overseers of the daycares (licensing) in OK.
