    Thanks everyone! And congratulations to you too Noahsmommy! When DS was born I knew that I wanted to breastfeed but I didn't know how it would go. Everyone asked how long I planned on nursing and I always said as long as it works for us. I didn't want to put a time frame around it but I figured I wanted to shoot for a year. Well, I'm glad I'm a stubborn mule and fought my way through some of our early problems because the rewards of nursing now and never having to pay for any type of food for LO have been SO worth it. It helps that I've had DH's support and the support of a great pediatric GI specialist who told us that breastfeeding is the best thing I can do for DS's problems and to help prevent him from having the same problems my DH has. DH is now upset that his mom didn't nurse him for longer! I just hope that he will continue to support me when the comments from his family start, and I know they will start now that DS is over a year.

    Someone on a parenting board told another poster who was having nursing problems early on to "stick with it because over this hill is the promised land of nursing" and she was right. If you can stick out the hardships early on, it is soooooo great at the other end.

    You are right... If you can stick with bf it's so rewarding. If I made it through yeast infection in breasts & cracked, bleeding nipples then anyone can do it. I am just remembering 1 year ago today, lo is 1 today. I was so scared that I couldn't bf him right, now here we are 1 year later still bf. So... congrats all you moms for hanging in there.

    Way to go we are both still bf. I think everyday she is ready to move on, but she crawls up to me and gets comfy on m lap. At night we fight because she wants to play. But we are now only bf after lunch and after nap time, at quiet time and then she gets up and down about 3 -4 times in the middle of the night. But she is getting better to put back to sleep. I think her new teeth are coming.
    so proud of you.
