Everyone, Please understand that it was NEVER my intent to have anyone view this as a contest!! I had hoped - and thankfully it seems that it's going this way - that this would be useful for every one of us, in all our various stages of the BF adventure. You know, encouragement to women struggling in the early, painful, frustrating days, to get to see that many of us initially had goals of weeks or a few months -- only to find that it's a beautiful process and we hope to go much longer, etc. And also to moms who have chosen to or have just found themselves nursing beyond one year to see that we're not "abnormal" and that it's really OK, even if society in general isn't aware of all the benefits and is therefore not very supportive.
I hope everyone here accepts my motivations on this. Please, if anyone has felt any negativity or pressure or anything uncomfortable, do accept my apologies (and feel free to vent at me directly via PM if you need!!)
Also -- Mary, or any of the moderators -- if you can change the poll type to show totals in each category but not individual names, etc. that would be great. I mistakenly didn't set that properly and cannot fix it myself.
