Made it to 1 yr !!

I am so happy to report that I have been breastfeeding ds #2 for 1 yr now !

It hasnt been easy though... I had 6 months of constant burning pain 24 hours a day from eczema on my nipples that the doctors all told me to quit breastfeeding and then 4 UTI's where the doctors were threatening me that I would need to quit BF to take different antibiotics. Also ds had silent reflux and was back arching and screaming miserable ever time he nursed for the first 5 weeks.

So now that breastfeeding is no longer painful and is a pure joy we are heading for year 2 !

Re: Made it to 1 yr !!

Congrats mama! I didn't make it to 1 yr with my oldest, and have always regretted not pushing through.

But I remember how awesome I felt when I made it with DS2. And DS3 will be a year old in 10 days.

Congrats on your awesome accomplishment!!! I KNOW (from experience) that it's not easy sometimes.


God bless!
