Best decision I’ve ever made for my child was to breastfeed him, & the fact that it’s even healthier for him makes it all worth it. It’s been 6 months since I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, & we’re still enjoying this breastfeeding journey! Mike is my biggest supporter when it comes to breastfeeding, besides the mommy pages I follow. Whenever I feel like giving up, he always remind me that I have another 6 months to go lol.
Breastfeeding isn’t easy the first week or two, because you feel like your milk isn’t coming in fast enough. But what I have learned is the more you put your baby on your breast, the more milk you produce. Of course your nipples are going to be really sore and cracking, the first week or so. But after that, it goes right to normal and the soreness goes away! Now if you’re still expericing tenderness on your nipples, I would definitely talk to a lactation specialist or your doctor.
People always ask me “when will you stop breastfeeding”? I guess the answer to your questions is I don’t think I’ll stop anytime soon and to be completely honest, I’m thinking about breastfeeding until he’s about one or two years old. I totally wouldn’t mind breastfeeding for another year or so.
