I am soo over feeding right now.
Like kitty my 12 years of feeding have brought so many wonderful memory and fantastic bonding time with my 6.
Breastfeeding is hard at times and so easy at other times. It is worth it if you can hang in there.

She must of known I wrote something just woke for the 4th time since going to be 3 hours ago! This little lady thinks she is a newborn or something..
Thanks for the support ladies, I think Id be devastated to give up feeding, even when my fibroadenoma flares up. I was even considering weaning her just from my right side but I'm trying to ride through it and hope next week is back to normal

And there then are times when I was so grateful to be bf'ing.
Like the time when DD was a few months old and we went to Bunnings. DF played in the playground and DF and I got a coffee. I was holding DD and she started to squirm and fuss so I fed her. She fell asleep and for the first time for months DF and I got to have a coffee together in peace.
The time when DD was hospitalised with gastro when she was about 14 months old. She was on a drip to hydrate and give her anti-sickness meds. She woke in the morning feeling much better and settled in for a feed.
The times when DD had colds and snuffles and I could give her the best medicine around.
The times when DD refused to have her bottle of EBM at childcare so the carers would give it to DS who was 4.5 at the time and he told me it was yummy.
My mantra - just get through this feed. Don't stress about anything else, just get through this feed.

Absolutely but I don't ever want to quit because of a bad day.
I'm finding it hard with my second for no reason other than he wants it a lot (also doesn't sleep all night) and pulls at me all day. But then I have moments where I'm holding him while feeding and he falls asleep and it's perfect.

It's all settled down and she has been a bit unwell so really appreciated her boobie and cuddles.
Thanks again to everyone for that bit of support, it was tempting to pack it all in but I am so glad I didn't.

DD is 7 mths and I suffered from pain for 4 mths due to recurrent thrush and persistently shallow latch. Now I can say it's easier, still not a breeze but mostly comfortable. I like the fact that if we make an unplanned trip or we're out longer than expected, I don't have to worry about bottles/formula. I like the bond it creates between me and DD. When I think about weaning fully, I feel sad so that keeps me going. You've done great to make it this far.
