  • I was 19 when I had my son and I breastfed. I'm now 27 and pregnant with my 2nd son and I plan to breastfeed also:) My Mom and all my friends around me growing up breastfed, so when I had my son when I was 19...it was natural to me.

  • guess people assume young moms will be 'bad moms' -- not that bottle feeding is bad -- both mine were bottle babies!

  • It is definitely rare. I have known lots of teen moms and only one of them nursed her baby. My mom used to be a counselor at the Crisis Pregnancy Center, and she never knew a teen that nursed. Good for you and your baby!
