I nursed my first for TWO years. she is now almost 5 yrs.
I nursed my second for 9 months, she is now 16 months old.
I am due w/ my third in March.......and I have a SD who I have alone frequently.. so I am raising 3 kids under the age of 5 already.. will I have time to nurse this baby? I know I want to nurse at least for a couple of months, but I know it will be hard. I dont plan on pumping that has never went well with me & id rather just do formula than pump my life away at this point. Anyone with so many kids find it really hard to nurse by the 4th one? Im a SAHM so that is good.. but Im just afraid I wont be able to take care of the other little ones while the baby nurses................

My oldest was 5 when I had my 4th. I was also taking care of my terminally ill mother. I asked a similar question and most people told me that I would be happier nursing, and it could be done. Five months into it, I can tell you, it can be done, and I am so much happier. Taking time to nurse the baby is a relaxing time for me. Sometimes, it's the only time I have to relax. Think hard about this one. I formula fed my third because I was so stressed with my kids and my mom that I thought I wouldn't have time. I regret that decision all the time. Don't make a whim decision that you will regret... Good luck, mama. You CAN do it!!!
