Can I share a nursing picture?





I did not nurse Mia. I had severe PPD with her and no support system. Getting myself healthy was more of a concern then BFing at the time. This time around, I was determined to make it work. I made DH promise me that he would tell me that I was not allowed to give up, and between milk blisters, a bad latch, cut nipples and blinding pain every time she latched on, I wanted to quit! I stuck it out, and here we are, almost 3 months later still going strong! I am so proud of myself and there is nothing better then seeing her excitement when she sees my boob, knowing that I am doing this for her

Beautiful picture! I struggled incredibly with my first (an a little less with each LO after) but we perservered! Looking back I'm so proud of myself for not giving up. Great job, Mama!

That is such a beautiful picture, mama, thank you for sharing! And WTG for sticking it out. I think BFing is one of the hardest things that I have had to learn how to do ( and it should be so natural from the start) but the rewards of it, for mother and child, are so amazing! Gabe turns 1 in two weeks and it is so hard for me to realize that we have almost made it a year. Keep going mama, it only gets better!
