This had me in tears by the end. I know that breast vs formula is a very personal choice, but dang, my hormones had me so teary by the end. I just loved nursing my little one a bit over 6 years ago and can't wait to nurse a new little one 8 months from now.

I know I breast fed my daughter for about 5 - 6months. Wish I had done it longer, supply issues etc. made me stop. I can't wait to breast feed this LO. Its definitely an awesome experience.

But were you going to post a link or picture or something though?

That was sweet.
I BF my daughter for 26 months. I only stopped then because I was going to have two work trips and I figured it would be easier on her if we weaned before I left.

My first was a boobaholic but I weaned at 1 because that was just what people did, and I kinda regret it....
my second never latched no matter what I tried, and I pumped for 7 months before completely feeling hopeless and losing my supply.
I can't wait to try again this time.

I have kinda missed nursing... I plan to nurse... but we will see how it goes... things are much different from when I had my last as to commitments I have that I have to hold true to.... I cannot pump so I dunno....
