    Default Thanks to nursing:

    I'm in one of those moods to be thankful for nursing my baby so I thought I would post....
    Thanks to nursing: my baby is healthy and happy
    Thanks to nursing: I lost my baby weight (and then some)
    Thanks to nursing: LO and I are super close
    Thanks to nurning: I am confident and headstrong
    THanks to nursing: I am once again in LOVE with my body
    Thanks to nursing: I am looking forward to having another LO


    That's it. I'm a thankful mommy today. Just got back from the hospital visiting a friend who gave birth yesterday. They are having latch problems and seems she is giving up already..... big bummer!

    yay for nursing!

    I've got a mantra for you, it helps me though. "It's not my baby, it's not my baby" Give her the number for LLL or an LC, offering help is all you can do, it's up to her to take action.

    I was thinking this just yesterday. After pumping exclusively for my 1st baby, being able to breastfeed my 2nd baby is like a dream come true.

    I have lost all my pregnancy weight. Still hoping on the 'and then some'.
    I just love cuddling my little boy, day and night. No bottles to wash!!
    DS is almost 1 y/o and has never had an ear infection or dirreah, nothing. In fact, all he's ever had is a stuffy nose for a few days total.

    Just love breastfeeding.

    All you can do for your friend is give her a pep talk and tell her the latch can get better in 1 visit if she finds the right help. Some woman are just not determined to breastfeed.

    We have 2 beautiful children: Luana who's 9 y/o, had breastmilk for 2 years and is smart as a whip. Lucas who came out kickin', is 4 y/o and continues to enjoy his milkies.

    I like "Thanks to nursing I want another lo... " Me too!

    I can't say I'm in LOVE with my body after baby #2, but it certainly does help and there are certain parts of my body that I appreciate - KWIM?

    Thanks to nursing: I don't have to bottle feed
    Thanks to nursing: We almost NEVER go to the doctor's, even though both kiddos have been in daycare from eight weeks
    Thanks to nursing: My toddler still gets some bm even though he's weaned
    Thanks go nursing: I get to cuddle with my baby extra!

    I love this thread - thanks for posting your thankful thoughts!

    Love this!
    -Thanks to nursing I haven't had to miss one day of work to care for a sick baby (played hookey a few days to play with a healthy baby though!)
    -Thanks to nursing none of the many daycare colds never turned into an ear infection.

    And because I'd never be here without them....
    -Thanks to patient and loving LCs, family & friends, my baby finally latched after 4 weeks of EP! THANK GOD!!!!
