I have just over 2 years of college education and can say before I went to college I had my son, and was not as successful at breastfeeding.

I graduated high school 2 years early and have a college education. I am breastfeeding my 3rd. However I was just 2 months past my 18th birthday, and had just finished my 3rd semester of college when I nursed my oldest.

It doesn't really matter how I feel about it....statics prove that more education is associated with better bf rates.

I have an advanced high school diploma with MS scholars(an extra work thing). I gave up my free ride to college to be a sahm. Hopefully I'll get back to that continued education later.

I graduated hs with honors and got a fully paid scholarship to a private college. I left college because I couldn't afford my outside college expense while attending full time. My scholarship was based on full time and because it was a private school it was extremely hard. So I couldn't work and do school. My English class alone had so much reading and writing alone there would be no way to even read it all....so you would have to skim the books. I also lived on campus. I had my first child 1 yr after leaving school actually lol. My husband and I are still married. I'm a sahm and we are pregnant with our 4th child.
