View Full Version : Lucky !
I feel very lucky being able to feed as I have heard others cannot.
I feel lucky that I can feed so easily with no need for anything but a good feed myself helps!
I feel lucky that I am able to give something from myself to my children.
What a lovely idea for a thread. I, too, feel extremely blessed that I have successfully BF all three of my children and until I started chatting here on Bubhub, I didn't realise just how many women have had problems and suffered physically, mentally and emtionally because of them. My heart goes out to the all the women who wanted to BF but for many varied reasons were or are unable to.
I feel incredibly lucky
to have such a wonderful son,
to have a wonderfuly supportive husband,
to have been breastfeeding for over a year,
to never have experienced nipple tenderness/cracks or mastitis,
and to every day feel that closeness and warmth and know I'm doing what's best for my son.
i was in that boat. I nearly gave up breastfeeding my DS sooo many times, but I kept on making goals for myself.
I dont consider myself that strong, but after all my problems and still breastfeeding exclusively since 3 or 4 months old (DS eating solids too) for over 11months, this showed me how much i perserved and how persistent I was - very surprising to me.
I feel for the women that have not been able to breastfeed and hope they forgive themselves (i konw many women feel guilty and its not a nice thing). it doesnt matter how you feed your child, aslong as they are getting fed, have a loving and safe environment that is the main thing.
I hope my next bub i will have a very smooth breastfeeding relationship :fingerscrossed:
i feel blessed that i have breastfed my girls , that they are healthy and happy.
as for the luck of it, i put in lot's of blood sweat and tears (literally) into learning to breastfeed, that as much as luck is imo why i was successful.
i am lucky that i had the confidence , support and background to never question if i was going to breastfeed but to ask instead, how to make it work for me.:yes:
After challenges and early weaning with DD, I am eternally grateful that I have found BFing DS so easy and simple. I'm so grateful, I can't express how thankful I am, words fail me. :)
I feel incredibly lucky to have had such a wonderful breastfeeding relationship with both my beautiful daughters!!:smiliedance: I never had any difficulties, no cracked nipples, no mastitis, nothing!! I realise I really am lucky as I have had many friends who have had to struggle and many did not feel they could continue:( which is very sad!! For myself I would have been devastated if I couldn't have breastfed!! It is one of the most wonderful things I have ever done!!!:yes:
I feel very blessed to share such a beautiful breastfeeding relationship with my son :kiss:
I am grateful that I am a member of bubhub and can read all about these wonderful positive experiences. My hat goes off to all of you ladies :hugs: - you inspire me for my next babies. I am pleased that it works so well for some ladies, it really does give others hope and something to work towards next time.
My mum and nanna both couldn't bf - no milk at all - so I was always scared that I wouldn't be able to. Also in hospital all the midwives warned me that women with my complexion (fair skin, red hair) normally have lots of problems with cracked nipples etc. I'm so blessed that I am able to bf and have never had cracked nipples or mastitis or anything - my clever little man worked out how to attach very quickly and DH has been so supportive.
