Re: Did your mom breastfeed?
My mom breastfed premature twins (my brother and I were 3 and 3.5 lbs at birth) back in the '70's. We were her first, so she had no breastfeeding experience, and no real help pumping and then later getting us onto the breast, but she managed it anyway. She weaned us around 13 months. I knew if she could manage that, there was no reason for me not to breastfeed! Fortunately, my own experiences were much easier than hers...
