Just want to share

that after all my battles with low milk supply, all my worries, and stressing, I made it to one year breastfeeding my girls. I never had enough milk to exclusively breastfeed them, which I am still a little bummed about. However, I gave them what I had. We made it to a year and I am not thinking about stopping yet.

Mama, you name it, I tried everything... pumping, breastfeeding, SNS, milk tea, special blend, oatmeal, fluids... I was miserable. I never imagined I would have issues with my milk supply. During pregnancy, I read about everything but breastfeeding because for me it was a natural choice - oh I don't need to know anything about it, I will be breastfeeding no questions asked. Didn't know that I was not in control of it. Now, it's way more enjoyable because I don't need to worry about them getting enough, it's only a dessert for them.

Mama, I hope so too. Just keep trying and don't stress too much over it. These days will also pass and tomorrow you will have other things to worry about.

That is a great accomplishment!! You give other mama's the boost they need to continue even though it may not always be easy.

Congrats, Mama. I had to supplement with another Mama's milk from nine months on but we made it. We are now at 2+ years.

That is an awesome accomplishment, congrats to you!

I had a low supply, and I tried everything, too. It really sucks. But any breast milk is helpful!
