    Default Nobody Told Me...

    Nobody told me breastfeeding would be hard.

    Nobody told me there would be times at the beginning that I would want to quit.

    Nobody told me one day I would realize I was actually doing it, and enjoying it.

    Nobody told me I would eventually treasure our times breastfeeding and look forward to our time alone.

    Nobody told me I could feel such intense love.

    I'm Beth-
    Mama to L (7/14/09) and B (6/27/11).

    Be sure and tell someone you know. Don't you wish someone HAD told you?

    Way too lazy for formula

    I wish someone had told be this during my first 2 weeks with my DD. I think I would have felt like less of a failure when things didn't go as smoothly initially as I thought they should.

    Knowing other women who have BTDT really helps when you are struggling.
