breasts and was sad. With some work, she slowly started being ok on the left side again. By 7 months she was eating on both sides great again and everything had evened out.
By 11 months, she reduced herself to nursing only in the morning and before bed, and finally weaned herself right before her first birthday. I wasn’t quite ready to let go of that relationship yet, but she was ready so it was okay. It was so worth all of the pain and tears.
I never thought I would be so passionate about breastfeeding. I also always thought I would never be comfortable breastfeeding in front of anyone, but after I had my baby I didn’t care who was there I just knew she was hungry and I was going to feed her whether they liked it or not. I’ve had so much support online and off and I’ve learned so much from everyone, it really made the my experience so much easier. I’m very thankful for all the supportive mommies and LCs who helped us along the way.
