  • I breastfed my first 3 with no problems, but had trouble nursing my 4th. I had some issues with my milk due to severe anemia (had to have 2 blood transfusions) and had to use a SNS for a few weeks.

  • I had problems with my first child, but was able to last about 6mths. I had to nurse my 2nd past a year because he refused formula and milk.

  • My second was more of a challenge... but I think because I had the experience we were able to push through.

  • Mine was the opposite, I had trouble with my first and I'm going strong on 9 months with my second!
