Re: EP by choice

Why would you want to?

I had considered BF'ing for the first year and then switching to EP because I was not sure how comfortable I would be nursing an older child, now I would KILL to be able to BF, my son was in the NICU for a month and Im stuck EP'ing for two years....Its not fun, its a massive time consumer, time I could be otherwise spending with my son bonding and caring for him, or cleaning the house, or taking a shower.

Its painful, my nipples are never not blistered and purple....I just dont understand why anyone would choose this if they could otherwise breastfeed.
