I feel very lucky that Evie and I had a successful breastfeeding relationship for 16 months. My breastfeeding posts have been some of my most popular from the beginning, so I thought that putting them all in one place would be convenient.
Here they are in chronological order from when I first posted them:
Sooo Distracted - About the difficulties of nursing an increasingly mobile child
M and Breastfeeding - About M's support throughout breastfeeding
The Battle Continues - Documenting the beginning of the end
Breastfeeding Body Changes - All of the funky things that happen to your body when nursing
It took a little longer than I expected - About the bond that breastfeeding creates
My boobs are worth what?!! - Cost savings of breastfeeding
My Best Advice - The best advice that I received prior to breastfeeding
You want me to do what?!?!? - Coping with Evie's dairy allergy
"But doesn't breastmilk go bad?" - Dealing with negative comments about breastfeeding
Oh yeah, I was supposed to be weaning my child - About our decision to put off weaning
It's Over - About the last time that I nursed Evie
Also, here are some links to a few breastfeeding websites that helped me out a lot.
www.kellymom.com - an informational website with tips on EVERYTHING breastfeeding
The breastfeeding forum on thebump.com - Reading other women's questions, struggles, and successes was amazing when Evie and I were learning how to breastfeed.
101 Reasons to Breastfeed - I think that it's just fun to read this sometimes. When things were going poorly, this helped keep everything in perspective for me.
Lastly, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!! I'm no expert, but I sure spent a lot of my time breastfeeding during the first 16 months of Evie's life. Hopefully I can help someone out there! :)
