    Default 1 year today!

    Wow I can't believe we have made it 1 year! With all of the issues we have had we are still breastfeeding. There were so many days that I was ready to be done and give up. But I kept saying one more day and things will get better, and they finally did. For all the stink DS made every time that I tried to nurse him in the first 6 months he now seems to be pretty attached to it and has refused a bottle since the day he was taken off the NG tube a few weeks ago and he's still gaining weight. Unfortunately I just took a job working 4 to midnight and I don't know how he is going to handle it without me. He will take a sippy cup but he won't drink much from it, hopefully we can get him to take more from it. Anyway thank you to everyone for your support, I would not be breastfeeding today if I hadn't found this forum so thank you so much!
