 I have been a member of this group for awhile now reading all of the helpful information while I was awaiting the arrival of DD2.

Well DD2 was born April 26th, 2012

With DD1 I had very little knowledge and support with breastfeeding, and quickly gave up within 2 days of being out of the hospital. 

Well with DD2 I am now 10 day pp and 8 days out of the hospital and going strong. 

My first goal 1 week - check
Goal #2 - 1 month - bring it on!!

Way to go! How are you feeling about it? Any problems?

From my experience if you can make it 6 weeks you will be golden. The first 6 weeks was the most demanding and after that he and I were in perfect sync.

Congrats! I nursed my first for 7 months and because I didn't know then what I know now I stopped, that was 15 years ago. I am still nursing my son who will be 19 months old on the 13th of this month. Small goals like you have then building to bigger ones is the way to go!

Thanks! I am actually feeling great about it this time around things are going great. It really helped that they were 1000x more helpful and breastfeeding friendly at the hospital this time around. The only problem I had was she didn't wanna latch on my left side the nipple is flat and no matter how hard we tried she just wouldn't latch right so as of right now we are using a nipple shield but hoping to wean from that in the future. But she nurses like a champ from both sides now :-)

yep the first 8 weeks were the hardest for me because I went back to work at 7 weeks so it took some extra time getting used to pumping and her taking a bottle!!

I had her on a Thursday and went back to school (college) the following Tuesday so I have been pumping and she's been taking a bottle since then. But she's been a champ no confusion and will only take a bottle if she knows I am not around which I am happy for
