A friend is BFing beacuse of the info that I gave her

I am so excited. A friend of mine (a new friend), had her baby via c-section at 36 weeks last week (c-section WAS medically necissary). Despite the baby being in the NICU she has been able to BF.

She has a baby who is about a year and a half. She did not BF him. The hospital LC was kind of out there and it weirded her out and made her uncomfortable with BFing.

So of course the "Are you goin got BF" conversation came up. She said that she really wanted to try. So I shared some of my experiences, gave her some advice and told her that if she needed any help at all, to not hesitate to call me.. even if it was 2 am and she was having issues.

So I sent her an email giving her congradulatios on the baby. Told her I wasn't going to stop by un-announced and I wasn't going to bug her via phone messages, and to just call me when she's ready for visitors or if I can bring her a meal.

She responded with the info that she has been able to successfully BF "because of information you gave me!"

I'm so excited! I feel like, in part, the reason this baby is getting the best food ever is because I cared enough about her, before she was born, to share my BFing education with her mama!!!

YAY! I feel like I have made a difference in a sweet little life. I can't wait to meet her. I think she will be in the NICU until Monday.

God bless!
