18 Months Today...

Today marks two very special anniversaries. One I knew immediately, that my daughter is eighteen months old today, and the other I didn't think too much of it until another lady on this board celebrated her anniversary... today marks eighteen months of breastfeeding. One and a half years. It's hard to believe it. I've been very blessed that my breastfeeding experience has been blessedly uneventful. Breastfeeding has been relatively painless... I think. I seem to have a high pain tolerance. And I've never had to deal with Mastitis (thank God!)... my sister had it with two of her four children and it led to her weaning her youngest at around 8 months. That would've been heartbreaking for me. I cherish this experience. It's a blessing! I've only had plugged breast ducts on three or four occasions. If I'm right that can lead to Mastitis, but I've always been able to catch it immediately and relieve the clog very quickly. Anyhow... here is a photo taken yesterday of my daughter Anna and me on the eve of her 1 and a half year birthday.

Congrats! Soon I will be at 17 months with this one, so adding to my 31 months with #1, June will make 4 years of breastfeeding. Which I wouldn't have thought of if not for your post!
Hope the rest of breastfeeding continues to go great for you two!!!
