What is one thing you are passionate about (besides being a mom?)

carseats and BFing. Everyone told me my convertable car seat was a bad idea because I wouldn't have an infant carrier. I was also told I wouldn't be able to BF so I should keep all the free formula I got. Guess who is BFing and using a convert carseat? I have had two mastitis infections (one on each side within 20 days) I have raynauds on both breasts and I think LO has Upper lip tie and my nipples hurt and its hard but she is about 10 pounds at just over a month old, BFing like a champ!

 Nice to meet you, Courtney!

What are your goals/hopes for when you obtain your degree(s)? Will you go into psychology, or use it toward something else like teaching or counseling, etc?
