Thank you for your applause! I have to say that tonight at the 7:00 feeding Rory latched right on, sucked vigorously for 3-4 minutes, pulled off, screamed bloody murder for about a minute, fell sound asleep, woke up quietly after about a minute, latched on, and sucked vigorously again. Total time from start to finish? 18 minutes. Total milk comsumption? 4.6 ounces! This whole BF journey has been challenging, fun, frustrating, gratifying, etc. I know that I am giving Rory the best. Even if she gets a bottle of pumped breastmilk from time to time. It's still milk, right? I just need to learn to not base my mood on whether or not nursing is going well. I believe my LC used the words, "You need to calm down." I'm trying. I won't ever give up. I always thought that I'd wean at around a year. If everything is going well, Rory can decide when she's done (okay, within reason). I want as much time for us to enjoy one another as possible!
