Just wondering how many of our mothers are currently breastfeeding.



Me!

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Nope - Sydney was 8 months old when she decided that it was time to move on to bigger and better things! Livia, I nursed her for 4 months and it was miserable for both of us (because of her chronic ear infections).

I am really looking forward to nursing Ethan for as long as he will let me. However...he is starting to bite and he thinks it's funny.

Well, I'm not feeding at the breast, but I'm pumping with a hand pump every 3 hours!! We are having some issues and he won't latch on, the hospital confused him with bottles. I'm disappointed and afraid that he may not ever take from my actual breasts

Seems like for the last two years... Though it hasn't been, Sept 2004 - March 2005 and then Nov 2005 - now.
I know the benifits and all the good things... But I would like my breast back. I would like to go to bed topless again.. Ok I know TMI !!! lol !! I would like to not worry about breast pads. And all that.....
But I have deffinitely enjoyed the breast feeding experience!! It has been so wonderful!!
