Just reading through a lot of the posts here has given me so much respect for a lot of you.

I've had some pretty great luck BF'ing, no major hiccups or anything. Reading some of the struggles a few of you ladies go through makes me very thankful for that. I don't think I'd be as tough as you. I think I would have quit. I'd like to say I'd stick with it and keep at it, but in all honesty I'm not sure if I would be able to. I don't know how some of you do it, but you're really amazing.

Just wanted to share, you ladies are a true inspiration.

Yes! I am 13 months in and haven't had any problems. Reading posts have given me inspiration, and confidence to continue nursing. I'm sure I wouldn't have made it this far without this group!

Thank you! It's hard work but I want the best for my little man. I'm not sure if mine was one of the posts but we have lots of struggles.

i had a rough start, but i valued the massive benefits of breastfeeding, so i really stuck to it. if only i had known back then that virtually *all* of my problems could have been fixed by simply nursing *more*! :P

mastitis was by far the most painful. 

having to use a nipple shield, then weaning off of it, was probably the most challenging.

Agreed, we've had a few minor hiccups, but nothing compared to a lot of the mamas here. I probably would've given up if I faced some of these ordeals, I've definitely been inspired by those pushing through! Way to go mamas!!!! :-)

if it wasn't for this group, I would've quit. no major issues, just wasn't educated enough. I got lots of support here and this Monday will be four months and going strong.
