    My son will be 18 months on the 20th of April

    and I still breastfeed. I'm only 16 and he's my first child so I was just hoping for some advice from other mothers. I consulted with my doctor and he said I can breastfeed as long as I'm producing milk. And my mom said I shouldn't continue breast feeding if he finds out what...

    Well, Not Any More, But I Did!

    My husband and I have four kids.  :)  I breastfed all of them up until they were about 15 months old.  I have never felt so supremely powerful in my entire life as when I nursed my children and kept them alive all by myself!!!!  Not only kept them alive, but...

    Got Thrush?

    I couldn't get rid of the bugger. I was on Diflucan, lotrimin cream, vinegar, and gentian violet. The GV took away the pain, but I had to use it so often that I felt that maybe the baby was ingesting too much. Well, I had a brilliant idea. Clorox bleach gets rid of thrush on...

    Such A Benifit

    I nursed my son until he was a little over 1, and that was mostly his choice to stop. Now, I've been nursing my daughter, who is 8mo. It can be pretty challenging.I must say that I find it more difficult the second time around. Maybe it is because I also have a 2 year old to care...

    Always Knew

    For some reason I always knew I would breastfeed. It was never an option not to. I'm not sure where that came from. The bond you create and the love and wonderfulness you feel; is just totally worth it. My baby was so easy to deal with. I got really lucky :) I will breastfeed...

    My 2 Month Old

    I didn't breastfeed my first child because I was young and had the mindset that breasts were purely sexual. When I first found out I was pregnant again I was determined to breastfeed and I did from day 1 and have been ever since. I don't know when I am going back to work but I'm...

    Hard Road

    I've been breastfeeding my son for 5 months and it's been a rough road to travel! For starters, no one warned me of just how painful it would be at first. I was prepared to watch for dry, cracked nipples and the like, but just latching on in the first month was murder! Add to...

    With my first son, I only breastfed him for three very painful months.  Little did I know that he was latching on improperly and that it wasn't supposed to hurt each & every time I nursed.  I mostly didn't enjoy it but did it because I felt it was the best thing to...
