I am pregnant with our 3rd and probably last baby. I so regreat not nuring my other 2, but my oldest when we came home from the hospital she wouldn't do it and instead of working with her I gave up and dh went out and bought a can of formula (noone told me what to do or showed me how to nurse not even a nurse at the hospital). Well, with my youngest I nursed for the first 2 weeks, but see I had a problem with the epidural that had me unable to nurse her a couple times in the hospital (i had to have a blood patch), then I came home went to the ER the next day and had another blood patch I had nothing pumped so she had to have formula when I went to the ER and when I couldn't feed in the hospital so 2 weeks I started drying up and she wouldn't latch on. Well this time around I want to nurse nomatter how much I have to work with baby to latch on. I told DH no matter how much I want him to go out and buy formula to not do it so I will continue breastfeeding. If all works well I want to nurse as long as possible, but I don't want to get weird comments for doing so. So what is the right age? How old is to old? Noone showed me what to do with my youngest either. So this time I am going to ask for help. I think the reason I dried up though was because one they sent me home drinking a lot of caffine for my headaches and i heard you can dry up from that. I got addicted to it when I left that, that was all I drank when I came home. Then I was on at least 2 or 3 diffrent pain meds.
