Here are my stories.....



Hi. my name is Tyanne. i had my sonJanuary, 2008 in the begining, i absoulutely HATED breast feeding but i knew it was the best thing you can do for your child. i had no problems after 20mins he latched on perfectly, so i continued to BF Harvey, 2wks after his first birthday.



my 2nd child was born October, 2012. breast feeding her is a total nightmare!!! its very painful mentally and physically . my nipples are raw red my little girl would suckle, sleep for one hr then stop suckling im frustrated my man suggested pumping but that never worked so Ella-Rose is now on formula and will only wake up on her next feed.

I'm combi-feeding.. because breastfeeding has been so hard for us and my supply is pathetically low. But I am so determined that I will do everything it takes that she at least gets a few oz of breastmilk along with her formula, for as long as I can do so.
My nipples are scarred and have gone from brown to pink because it was so painful and they were so cracked and bleeding at first! Though that has gone away now, and it's easier. She's still latching, so we're still nursing, and I will continue as long as I can until either I'm not producing, or she naturally weans.

I only have one child. He's almost 32 months now and he breastfed until 30 months (nights only from 22 months) I loved it. It was amazing.

His mouth wasn't big enough when he was first so I had to pump and formula feed for the first six weeks. While trying to get him to latch right at the same time. The first six weeks sucked but after that nipple butter was my best friend and helped me get passed the pain and cracked nipples.
