It was really quite an honor. WIC in my Mom's hometown asked me to come. I had gone there when I moved home during the last deployment to give them some formula and explained my situation. Then they invited me a few months later. It was so cool!

Quoting LOswald0314:

That's cool. I would love to do something like that.

Quoting armywife1229:

I sure was! I actually attended an event last year during this week to share my story with other breastfeeding mamas or soon-to- be mamas.

The second tome I was hospitalized for being septic from it. I want from zero symptoms to sepsis in less than 12 hours. I pumped and dumped through that and the week of antibiotics after I was discharged. Then went back to nursing until I got it the third time and want from being asymptomatic to being on the verge of another hospitalization in less than 4 hours.

Glad you were able to continue.

I had this too! I had mastitis that abcessed. Most horrible thing ever, they had to drain the clogged ducts with needles in the hospital. Horrible! I kept going though, and made it to 14 months with Abigail. 


Quoting Dani_Lynn:

I was with my first. After 3 bouts of mastitis, one that had me hospitalized for 3 days on multiple Iv antibiotics, DS was formula fed.

Dani, what an ordeal! I can totally understand stopping. I toyed with it after they were talking surgery.
