  • I breastfed my Son for a very successful 8 months! And they said I wouldn't be able to because I had my nipples pierced, and because my nipples are "flat" (which they aren't, they poke out just fine when I'm aroused..which I wasn't when breastfeeding - duh). My Son thrived and gained weight perfectly, and my supply was always more than enough!

  • Both my breastfed children were breastfed until they turned 2.
