Simple as that....

I was just asked to share my breastfeeding experience. Looking back, 7+years from now and 4 children and all I can really say is, I just nurse when they need it and nurse as long as it works for baby and I. Simple as that, right? Lol but really, if I were to sum it up thats what I would say. Sure.we have dealt with some bumps in the road, the typical mastitis, or thrush, but overall its that simple.

How would you sum up your breastfeeding experience in a sentence or two?

I would sum it up exactly as you have, and just add that I wouldn't have it any other way. :-)

Stressful, jars work but most over joying feeling ever. Nurse baby when he wants until he wants no more.

The most natural and beautiful thing to do between mother and child. With that, it's not as easy as you would think.

I got lucky and blessed! Lucky my children had no problems latching or developing bottle preference, and blessed with a very good supply that survived me having to work and pump over 8 times a day. Breastfeeding came naturally to me. Beautiful and rewarding experience, totally worth it!!!!

Get through the first month and you're golden.  Don't sweat the small stuff, babies eat when they're hungry and your milk supply is just fine.
