That is a beautiful statement. I don't think I could have said it better ;-)
Congratulations on your new little one. Enjoy this time, before you know it he will be a big boy!
Awww that is sweet, I had already decided to b/f but if I hadn't this sure would have changed my mind!! Thanks
This post is making me all teary-eyed. Breast feeding, for those that are able, is a truly wonderful thing.
I consider myself fortunate to be able to breast feed and don't envion stopping anytime soon. My son is about 8 1/2 months and we're still going strong!
i have pretty much decided to b/f (due in about 82-84 days) am scared out of my mind due to a previous bad nursing experience... but am determined to give it a really good try and hopefully be able to nurse for at least 3-6 months if not longer. with my past experience i had a hard time getting baby to latch on, and therefore he wasnt nursing right, and my milk wasnt coming in the way it should have. so i am really not sure if this time will be differant but i truly hope so. i dreamt last night that i had to start pumping and within 3 minutes had pumped 3 full bottles...lol...i know that is probably not possible but it gives me hope that i will be successful with this.
that is a very beautiful sentiment/statement and i am so happy that things are going well for your little boy. it is true...it isnt long and they grow into independant children... i wish they would stay tiny a little longer...lol
I had planned on breastfeeding my daughter, even took a class at the hospital but between her painful latch (even with LC help) and then her jaundice making it nearly impossible to keep her awake durring feedings I had to resort to pumping and giving her my breast milk from a bottle. I was a little disapointed that things havent quite worked out the way I planed, but thank god for my medela pump in style shes going on three months ans with the exception of a few supplemental feedings here and there I have been able to keep giving her breastmilk and plan to do so as long as my supply allows
Just an update. It has now been 7 weeks and we are still breastfeedin' fools. He will have the ocassional bottle of pumped milk but other than that my boy is a b**b baby!
