Re: Why don't people breastfeed?

I was BFing. I wanted to until DD was a year old. BUT...I had a really bad yeast infection in my breasts, and it took 3 rounds of diflucan and an antibiotic to make it go away. Even now, one of my breasts is still kind of tender. Dealing with painful nursing for 3 months as well as having my milk supply start to diminish (I think b/c of the antibiotics?), I wasn't making enough milk anymore, and I was jaded from the constant pain. Hopefully w/our next baby, I'll be able to keep nursing. I didn't want to stop so soon.
