Well.... bf wasn't technically easier with my third, I still had the exact same issues... but, I didn't let these issues win. I went in totally 150% determined that I WAS going to bf for at least 12 months. During pregnancy, I educated myself soooooo much about my recurrent bf issues , I rang the ABA for advice, went to LC's for advise, did bf classes. I told everyone that I was bf no matter what, and if they didn't want to support this decision, that they could kindly keep their mouth shut (for my first 2 everyone kept telling me that it's too hard, just go to formula).
When I started having issues I shopped around for doctors, LC's, more ABA people until I found someone that didn't just pass me off again. Seriously I went to so many GP's. Anyway I eventually found one that wanted to trial something with me, and it worked. I also took ultra strict care of my boobies, even all through the night.
I ended up bfing for 2.5 years!
