We're officially part of the Extended BFing club today! Happy Birthday to my little monkey!
Guess I'll introduce myself properly even though I've been lurking and posting a bit for awhile. I'm Erin (29). My DD is Teagan Tesla. She's my first and she's a serious booby baby. Overall, BFing has been pretty easy. We had our moments of nipple pain for the first month and I dealt with oversupply for awhile. I'm a full time grad student so I started pumping when she was 3 months old. My milk didn't store well so I have to scald what I pump before giving it to her. Not that she'd ever drink it because she just straight up hated bottles up until about a month ago. We're done with that now. I'm packing the pump away and she'll just be BF'd on demand at home. She still demands quite a bit so I think I'll be around for quite some time to come! My plan is the keep offering for another 6 months to 1 year and then take the don't offer, don't refuse approach.
Oh, and NAK
Congrats on a year, and welcome!
