    Thumbs up Thank you

    I had my 3rd baby boy in July. I decided to really give BFing a go because this was my last baby. I can't tell you how helpful you have all been! I was pretty stressed out for a while at first. There are so many things that no one tells you, like what cluster feeding is and that it's normal and doesn't mean that you don't have enough milk. You told me. Without all the help I received on this site I would've been supplementing with formula, and maybe not even BFing at all.

    It was rough for a while, but we've made it 3 1/2 months and there is no end in site. Of course I bonded with my first two and love them more than anything, but the bond I have with this little guy is different.

    Thank you all for taking the time to help out newbies like myself. Your advice is precious. Without you there wouldn't be as many happy BF babies out there.

    That's so sweet, and very true!! If this place wasn't around, I probably wouldn't have bf'd succesfully either!

    Congratulations on making it through the rough first few weeks mama! You truly will be amazed at what a breeze it is going to be from here on out. I'm so glad you were able to make it through the hard times. It is SO worth it and you will be so happy that you did.

    Congrats on making it this far, mama! Although there are bumps (teething comes to mind, and growth spurts) it does get generally easier from here on out. on sticking with it, and I am so glad that you found us!
