    Default Six months today!

    I can't believe my son is six months old today! If you'd asked me whether we'd still be breastfeeding at six months oh, 5.5 months ago, I would have said "probably not." I can't believe we're here! And I'm loving it more than ever!!

    Anyway, if anyone doubts that they can make it, trust me, you CAN! I mean, we had a REALLY bad start; bleeding nipples, a baby who didn't even want to latch, nevermind latch well, bad advice in the hospital, and a nipple confusion scare. But we overcame it all, and a lot of that was thanks to the community here and the LLL group I go to.

    Here's to another six months!

    Thumbs up Re: Six months today!

    I am right there with you. yeah! my son is only 4 days older than yours. Mine has only been sick once - with a minor cough that scared me more than him
    What about yours?

    My friend just had a baby a couple weeks ago, and she said her baby "just won't latch". I just think she did not get good advice (when I emailed her the question if she saw a lactation consultant, she just did not reply ) ...

    makes me sad! keep sharing your success story!!!
