    Ok, I am proof positive that stick-to-itness works. :-)

    I had problems at first:

    Flat nipples, shield didn't work well, trouble latching, blister on nipple, crying when having to feed due to blister, one side almost drying up due to issues.....But I've stuck it out, used my resources, and baby is (apparently) a chunky butt!

    I am so very happy! I love breastfeeding, and have worked hard to make it a good experience for the both of us.

    I still have some frustrations, but I'm not letting the get to me, I'm working through them.

    Well that's good for other struggling mammas to see.

    We had a terrible time at the beginning too. The delivery nurse took one look at my nipples and said 'there's nothing for him to latch on to'. Turns out it didn't matter much because I produced milk like a . and he gained 1 pound/week for many weeks. Surely if my flat nipples were a problem, evolution would have gotten rid of them a long time ago. At least that's my thinking.

    I really bf now, I am so glad I stuck it out.

    MY baby gained ONE pound a WEEK for the first two months!!!!!!! The doctor said it was almost impossible and amazing. When he was a week old he looked like a month old baby, two weeks like a two month old baby, etc... Now he is four months and he wears clothes 9mo and up.

    Way to go Mama!!! Its a great feeling when they gain weight well

    I had so many issues in the beginning, OALD/OS, Colic (that is the worst!!!), Thrush, then undersupply, and Reflux but I stuck it out too, now I have a 4 month old chunker, he is 16lbs (as of 3 weeks ago, he has gained more since then) and EBF

    You all make me sooo jealous. I wish I had discovered you all when I was having troubles and I gave up after 5 days from struggling as well as having zero support...but when the next one comes along, I'll remember all your struggles and think if she can do it so can I!!!!
