Just wondering how many of us are still breastfeeding and how it's going? Markus is nursing really good, we had a few rough times and I definately found it more challenging to nurse after a csection than with a natural birth. I thought it would be nice to see breastfeeding pics if anyone wants to share?
I don't have any pictures I'd be willing to share... I've tried to get a few good ones, but I don't like any that I can get and DH isn't about to take one for me. But we are still exclusively breast feeding. She's had formula a couple of times (I don't have time to pump) but I'd say it's a total of 5 oz over the past month.
I'm pretty sure we have thrush again, though. She's got a diaper rash starting up unlike any that I've seen before (lots of tiny little red bumps like a heat rash) and my nips are sore and red and cracked again. But I can't see any white in her mouth.

we're still going too. No plans to stop anytime soon, definitely not before he's one. I don't have any pictures of me breastfeeding Isaiah

Still breastfeeding here, will continue till at least a year. BF'd Hailey for 16 months. I went back to work at 13 months and pu,ped while away and she basically gradually weaned herself over the next 3 months. Going back to work at a year this time, and full time (last time went back part time, have a different job now) so I hope to pump and still BF before and after work for at least a few more months.
I'm still pumping, does that count??? I've tried to go back to ebf several times but he is too lazy and would rather have the bottle. I still pump 7 times a day for 30 minutes and we are still supplementing because he's a little piggy, lol, but he gets about half from me.
