    Default Can't believe I made it this far

    As of today, I have been pumping exclusively for one year. I never thought I would make it two weeks, or a month, or 6 months, but especially not a year. And even crazier, I'm going to continue to do this for at least a few more months.

    I wanted to thank all you LLLadies for all the help and support you have offered. I have learned so much since I started hanging out in the forums. Most of all, I feel like I know so much more about successful breastfeeding now than I did when my son was born. And most of all, I feel like I have everything I need to avoid having to EP next time.

    CONGRATS
    I had to EP for a short time (6weeks) when my LO was first born. After I fixed the tougue tie we figured out nursing...Pumping was a ton of work...Kudos to u and all the mommies who EP!
