12 Month breastfeeding milestone!!

Yesterday was DD's first birthday already!! I still can't believe it! It was also our 12 month breastfeeding milestone. YAY US!! We've gone through everything, bad latch, colic, mastitis, reflux, low milk supply, stomach flu twice, a 6 day nursing strike, and many colds (And yes, even uneven sized breasts LOL). I'm happy we persevered through all of that and made it this far. DD never took a single liquid other than breastmilk until she was 11 3/4 months old! I'm so proud of myself for having done such a great job. When Emilee was born, my breastfeeding goal was 6 months...then 9...and now, I think I could easily go until self-weaning.

Congratulations!!!

I remember the 'moving goal' situation with my first, too. First it was "just make it 6 weeks" (in sheer excruciating pain...before we saw the LC), then 3 months, 6 months and then no goal, just keep going! It's such a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

Re: 12 Month breastfeeding milestone!!


I couldn't decide on one to use so I used them all. Great job! I think it's especially rewarding when you realize how many challenges it takes to get to where you are and you've had a lot. My self weaned at 16 months and my 9 month old is going strong.
