 Did you breastfeed your babies?

 Was it easy for you or did you struggle with it?

If you didn't and could do it all over again would you?

We have so many allergies on both sides, I at least wanted to try and had already heard about the health benefits with my first. I still remember my mother's comments and chuckle. She commented for the first that BF made babies fat. For the second BF made babies thin. The thin one is still very thin today. Doesn't matter what she eats. My third was tiny. Around 4 months the Dr's nurse commented, do you produce cream. Seems nature takes care and she gained and grew quite well. All 3 are healthy today.

Yes, I breastfeed all my babies.

I didn't have any problems.

Yes, I would do it all over again. I would encourage everyone to do it because it is so natural and so good for the baby and Mom!

I breastfed my first one.  When I got pregnant with my second one when she was 4 months old, she didn't want to nurse any more.  I tried with the second one but eating was not her favorite pastime and my milk dried up.  I tried with the third but the first 2 realized that when mommy was feeding the baby I couldn't exactly stop what I was doing to get them out of what they were not supposed to be in so I stopped.  I knew I was going to start working not long after I had my 4th so I didn't even try.

I did. I breastfed Joshua 'til about 7 months. I breastfed Caitlin 'til 1 year. It was very natural to me, as that's what all the women in my family did. I would do it again and maybe even longer. The first time we went out we left Joshua with Grandma with formula. She said he wouldn't take it, threw a fit, etc. Then I tasted the formula. It was so gross compared to my milk. So I bought a pump, and pumped very easily and always had that on hand.

Yes, I breastfed my only child until she was 14 months.  It was very easy, except for twice I had blocked mild ducts which hurt like hell.
