I just had a conversation with my 4 year old daughter who was wondering how we were going to feed the baby Her concern was - "But what if your shirt gets wet?"
Who is planning on breastfeeding? What are your breastfeeding goals? Is anyone choosing to start with formula instead? (Don't worry, no judgments here!)
I BF DD for 7 months. I had plans to do similar with DS but I only made it 3 weeks with him, which was discouraging. This time around I hope to be able to BF again for longer. I was thinking of setting a goal like 3 months this time, and hopefully I'll b able to make that one and set another for much longer!
With DD I got mastitis at 4 months but managed to BF right through it and get past the infection. Unfortunately I got mastitis with DS when he was 1 week old :confused: and he had a bad latch as well. I started to dread BFing because it was so painful and I couldn't get rid of the infection. I had to stop BF at 3 weeks for my sanity! I really hope to save the money this time and BF for at least 6 months.
