Re: Breastfeeding & bashing

This post is kind of personal to me.

I am VERY pro-breastfeeding. I have been lucky, and b/fing has always come VERY easy to me and my boys. With Mason (ds#1), nobody ever helped me, we just kind of went ahead and did it, and it worked and was GREAT! We nursed until he self-weaned.

With Camden, he was a champion nurser and all was great...

Until he had SEVERE health problems. He spent most of his first year of life in the hospital and was on a 24/hour NG tube. I tried to pump, to keep my milk supply up, but it was hopeless...he ended up being on the NG tube for 9ish months, so I stopped pumping.

I was (am) SO sad that I wasn't able to breastfeed him for very long...but in the end, with him, it was a matter of life or death, so I think I made the right decision.

I never judge people for feeding their child---as long as they are feeding them. I am obviously pro-breast feeding, but I give other people the right to make their own decisions.
