    Default Hooray! We're toddler nursing!

    Finally, we are here! We did it! I cannot believe I've BF DS for a whole year. If it weren't for a few bottles of formula he got in the hospital right after he was born (at the insistence of the doctors, probably unnecessary), he wouldn't have had a drop of formula this whole time. I wasn't sure if we'd make it this far; my original goal was 6 months and then one year. We've had our share of frustrations, worries, and minor problems, but I'm so glad we stuck it out. I hope we can keep going till at least 18 months!

    I've done a lot of venting, ranting, and complaining on the sleep threads and elsewhere, and I just also wanted to say that despite all of our struggles, my DS is the most precious, wonderful, beautiful baby I could possibly imagine. I just want him to be happy and healthy and I care so much about doing the right thing, which is not always easy. A lot of things have been very difficult for us. But through it all we have been able to BF and I am very thankful that BF is one thing that has gone pretty well.

    Thanks to all of you for your support! This forum has helped me so much!
