Getting ready to nurse my 4th child.... reflections...

Just wanted to reflect on my nursing history...

I feel so blessed to have been able to successfully breastfeed 3 kids well over a year and am currently looking forward to the birth of my fourth (and final) child whom I will also breastfeed.

My mom nursed myself and my 4 siblings as long as we wanted and she has been my inspiration.  My sister is currently breastfeeding her first child (who is now 10 months!).  I am so proud to say that I helped her make the decision to nurse in the first place AND helped her through the first couple months (which are usually the roughest).

I know some woman find it too hard or have lots of issues, etc  I am thankful that I was not one of them.  There were rough spots, don't get me wrong, but all in all.... it all came so naturally and I feel so great that I was able to give the best to my babies.

My mom nursed all of her children and I nursed all of my children, too!

Same here, except my mom nursed all but one, who could barely even suck from bottles due to her cerebral palsy. All 14 of her grandchildren were nursed as well.

Quoting catholicmamamia:

Awesome! My mom didnt nurse me past 10 days but sings my praise for nursing my 4 month old successfully.  She's my biggest supporter : ) She had me young in the 80's and was embarrassed by it because she had no support.  Now seeing me with my dd she wishes she had just done it.
