    Default One year...

    All the docs said I'd have to supplement before "too long" (at 3 months they were saying this). Well here we are at one year, and I'm still pumping enough for her (and then some).

    If you'd told me I'd manage a year I'd have been very doubtful. But, here we are!

    Momma to I, 06/04/10 VBAC'd (due 05/31/10). Read about it here

    Exclusive Pumper to first for 18 months.
    I got my VBAC!

    Struggling with nursing but one way or another breast milk is all they get.

    neat I'm glad that things are going well
    Doctors realy don't know much about breastfeeding, they get little to no training in school.

    I don't know if I'd have had the resolve to bf as you did if I had to pretty much exclusively pump like you. My hat's off to you momma! What a lucky baby girl you have.
