I am going to try to breastfeed again and if it doesn't work like last time I will pump again. I exclusively pumped for 14 months for DS.

I did not breastfeed with my daughter. This time around I want to try.. I think I will breastfeed will I am on maternity leave and then pump/supplement with formula once I go back to work. I have a friend who is a lactation consultant, I cant wait til I am further along so I can tell her and start getting info.

I had it super easy breast feeding my son. He latched on immediately after he was born. I plan to do it with this one for the full year again.

I produced no milk with my DD...it was very strange, hospital advised me to switch to formula as she wasn't getting any nourishment...I tried tho! She lost weight bless her, being a first time mummy it was quite upsetting.

Hoping this time I have more luck or will have to be formula!

Did your milk ever come it after you left the hospital? Sometimes it can take up to a week. I hope you have better luck this time around. There are something's you can take to help if you want to go that route.

Well, I'm happy to hear that it got better! I have to admit that I'm actually really nervous, but as I said, also insanely determined. I think my midwife will be a big help, though.
