becoming a breastfeeding counselor. I have been trying to rack my brain on what I want to do as the kids grow up. I know I want to stay at home until they are all in school but after they are in school full time I dont imagine myself staying home. When I had my first breastfeeding was awkward and I had so many people telling me what to do and how to do it that I just said screw it and went to FF. When I really wanted to BF him but I couldnt take all the people telling me what to do. With Katelynn I was more determined but still was awkward and the same issues happened. I had a lot more support with Everett and he nursed until he self weaned during Payson's pregnancy. And Payson nurses like a champ. I really feel I can help people but the unknown is scary. I think I am going to take the plunge and get certified at the beginning of the year, since I have to wait for taxes to pay for the class.
I agree with the other ladies. I think something to do with babies and mothers is definitely your calling. It sounds like this is something you are passionate about, but you are also not judgmental towards the ladies that have had to give up BF or have chosen to give up BF for different reasons. I think you'd be a wonderful counselor!
You have helped us all at one point or another. Clearly you have lots of personal experience, which in my opinion is more valuable than reading any number of books or listening to lectures. I think you'd be great!
