Re: Did your mom breastfeed?

Yes. My mother was a little old to be a hippy, but still was in spirit. She had both my sister and myself naturally and then BF us both for a little over a year. She encouraged me to (although it wasn't even a question-who wants to get up in the middle of the night and fix a bottle?) and helped me through the tough beginning I had with DS. She kept telling me, "You have SOOO much more in the way of support and resources than I ever had." She thought the pumps and nipple shields and lactation nurses were just the coolest thing.
Oh, she also CD'd me, but decided to do sposies once my lil sis came along, but she was wet pailing it and using a lot of bleach. Oh, and she lived in Saudi Arabia at the time. (No I'm not Arab-Dad worked for an oil co) The whole desert thing might have slowed her down.
Melissa-Wife, mother to DS 4/02 and DD 4/07, DS 7/08 DD 7/13
