Hello. I'm not breast feeding yet, but that's because my baby won't be here until October. This will be my third child (I'll have three little girls, heh) and I never even tried breast feeding with my other 2. With my first I was only 18 and was influenced by my mom telling me she didn't breast feed and I was also hesitant about such an intimate thing. With my second child I didn't breast feed because by then I had several psychological problems caused by my husband and I couldn't even think of letting my baby (or my husband) touch my breasts. Now that my husband and I are separated and he's only been a small thorn in my side for 6 months I believe I can handle breast feeding and I want to try. Also, both my other children became sick and were hospitalized before they were a month old and I want to give this one a healthier start in life
I have been breastfeeding for 6 months now. it has been hard but i am gald i am because of the benifits to the baby. i never thought i would make it this far ( the cost of formula has been an incentive). My new goal is 1 year.
