I am the only one!!

I have 2 DS's. One is 3 and the other is almost 7mo now. Both have been breast fed babies. DS1 was part time through 6 months (I just didnt produce well) and the other is only breastmilk through now.

Anyway, on Friday I picked up the boys from daycare and DS2's teacher said to me that I was the only mom that she has seen bring in breastmilk in 4 YEARS!!! Isnt that crazy???? I know that I am the only one that has used cloth diapers but the only one that breastfed???

I read a lot about how it is a dying trade...this kind of agrees with the literature. It saddens me. I love breastfeeding my LO's. I am sad that my DS2 is starting to reject me.

I just figured only you momma's would understand.

Re: I am the only one!!

I just saw that you too live in Chicago and think that is so sad for our city. I'd like to believe that some of those moms at your daycare nurse at home but just don't have the flexiblity at work or something to pump, so they supplement with formula during the day. But that's probably a very very small amount. I think part of the problem in Chicago is that so few of the pediatricians here actually encourage breastfeeding. Moms need more education!
