12 Month breastfeeding milestone!!
 
Yesterday was DD's first birthday already!! :cry: I still can't believe it! It was also our 12 month breastfeeding milestone. YAY US!! We've gone through everything, bad latch, colic, mastitis, reflux, low milk supply, stomach flu twice, a 6 day nursing strike, and many colds (And yes, even uneven sized breasts LOL). I'm happy we persevered through all of that and made it this far. DD never took a single liquid other than breastmilk until she was 11 3/4 months old! I'm so proud of myself for having done such a great job. When Emilee was born, my breastfeeding goal was 6 months...then 9...and now, I think I could easily go until self-weaning.

Congratulations!!! :lostit:

I remember the 'moving goal' situation with my first, too. First it was "just make it 6 weeks" (in sheer excruciating pain...before we saw the LC), then 3 months, 6 months and then no goal, just keep going! It's such a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

:celebrate: :goodjob: :yourock: :cheer:
I couldn't decide on one to use so I used them all. :giggle: Great job! I think it's especially rewarding when you realize how many challenges it takes to get to where you are and you've had a lot. My self weaned at 16 months and my 9 month old is going strong.

Whoo hoo WTG on a year!! Mama milk rocks!! You should be very proud....our first year of nursing was way tough, but I wouldn't of changed a thing and am soo glad I stuck with it opposed to everyone else telling me to just give up. Happy Birthday to baby too!
