    Default We made it!!!!

    Our struggle to breastfeed was the hardest ever!
    Ever since her first checkup she was considered low weight. She gained very little throughout this first year according to Doctors. I even succumbed and gave into supplementing. She weaned off an SNS, and got to be exclusively breastfed again. I wondered if I could ever enjoy this and not worry about there being something wrong with my daughter. I do now, I enjoy everything about nursing her. I love the way she comes up to me and demands the breast. I enjoy how Im the only one that can comfort her that way. I love the way she looks into my eyes when nursing. She loves me and the way I can provide nourishment for her body, as small as it may be. She is 12m now and she is only 16lbs but as happy as can be. I cant imagine ever giving up on her. All I ever thought about was how could I ever continue. That has changed to not seeing the end to this beautiful relationship. I see her now and I cant believe shes a toddler now. Shes so little and petite. But believe me she shows it in her attitude shes aquired over the last week!!
    Thanks to all of you who have helped me through!!
    I could not have done it without the support I have received here!
    Yeah we did it!!!
