Good job!! I breastfed for 30 months, I loved every minute of it. We had a rough first six weeks but we pulled through :)

In the first few days I wanted to give up, because his latch on the right side SUCKED, and nearly destroyed my nipple. I'm so glad I stuck to it, and have such a supportive SO...I'm sure I would have given up if it wasn't for him constantly reminding me that "breast is best" lol And every growth spurt had me in tears, thinking my supply was low.

My nips are weird...they change size all the time. I don't know if that's normal or not...haha. Sometimes LO's mouth covers them, and sometimes not. But whatevs, my b**bs have change in their purpose -- and they seem to be doing a great job! :) **Beam**

My b**bs and nipples are huge so he couldn't latch cuz his mouth wasn't big enough. I was pumping and supplementing and trying to get him to latch all at the same time. After six weeks we finally were only breastfeeding. It was hell, I'd feed him and put him to sleep, then pump both sides, are put everything away/sterilize parts and then he'd be ready to eat again, and the process would restart.

That would be so frustrating! I hate pumping. It's so boring -- but, you do what you gotta do :)
