Did you breastfeed?

Did you breastfeed?
Are you planning on breastfeeding your baby(s)?

I did with my first and wouldn't trade it for anything. My second, I did not but I so wish I had tried harder. I really missed it with Kaleb.

I would love to hear your thoughts?
This is World Breastfeeding Week. I thought I would post some common places that you can get help and advise and wisdom with your breastfeeding.
Of course these are only a handful of places. I am sure there are more and if you know of more, please let me know.

Please share if you have others. I would love to have an entire list of resources.

Laboring With You,
Doula Mama Pam

I tried with all three but things just didn't work out. It took me awhile to not feel guilty or feel like a failure but I know I did my very best. I loved it.

I did for almost a year with my first 2. It was great, few issues.

With my 3rd, also no issues, but a medical issue (mine) made medication necessary when he was 4 months old and we had to wean over the course of 3 days.

Never been so grateful for formula, and I have never been met with as much criticism as when certain people realized I was using formula.

I now am in the mindset that the parents need to make their decision and go with it. SANS criticism from others. :)
