Re: who do you know that refuses to BF?

I think it's sad that people have such misconceptions about breastfeeding. My best friend just had a baby and I was there with her for the first few weeks. Because we talked for so long and because I was there to support her and help her learn to nurse she is successful now. She would have easily given up and gone to formula had I not been so adamant that she could do it. Her husband was a little harder to win over, but he's a pain anyway, so I just ignored him.

I have one friend who quit because it hurt, another who said that she wanted her husband to help nourish her child pretty sure this was never an issue for my husband, who found many other ways to bond with our son.
I'm Amber, wife to Brian , and mommy to Myles 7/21/08 , Eloise 3/2/11, Lorelei and my furry baby Lucy 2/8/08.
