I always assume that moms who want to go natural are also nursers, Hopefully I'm right.

I plan to. My midwife is also a LC, so if I have any problems, she can help me along! (First timer...)

I don't plan on nursing- I WILL nurse come hell or high water My first was only breastfed for six months because I got very sick and lost my supply because of the pregnancy. I know now that I could and should have continued nursing him, even if it was only for comfort, but there were a lot of terrible things going on in my life and I didn't seek help. We had a rough start, and it took a solid 6 weeks before breastfeeding was "second-nature" to us. Sometimes I still feel guilty about getting pregnant again so soon after having him, but even though he was exclusively breastfed, my body was going to start cycling again regardless. My husband and I are thrilled to be having a second son, and I am thankful to have a second chance at breastfeeding. I also plan on pumping milk for my older one, and hopefully with a little work we can get him to nurse again someday. Yeah, I plan on nursing

I nurse. Ani and Cameron both self-weaned around 3 1/2 each (tandemed almost 2 years). Fritz has been nursing one week now. He'll self-wean too.

planning on nursing here! By the way, dh was on hold in the office (here) while I was checking messages yesterday. He saw your picture and blurted "boobie!!!" in a kid-like voice JUST as the lady on the phone took him off of hold. He turned all shades of red. I told him it served him right! lol, it was fun to see him explain his way out of that one.

We will definitely be nursing. Still nursing actually,

My son was a natural birth. But he was FF. I didnt know much about BFing when I had him. Sierra on the other hand still has her virgin gut.

I will definetly be nursing all my babies. We had a rough start with Isaiah but I couldnt imagine feeding any other way! Sometimes nursing really drives me crazy but overall I love it and I think its the most amazing thing our bodies are capable of.

Even though DD was medicated I nursed her and will ABSOLUTELY be nursing the next. I just hate formula, hate the price, etc. etc. Breastfeeding to me is just the best. Now I am becoming more informed about natural birth and wanting to try it. I guess everyone I know has just gone for the pain meds and honestly I got kind of pressured into it anyway. Lots of things I want to change this time around.

I would like to nurse if it works out. I know it is very difficult for some women. The price of formula is so ridiculous, though, and frankly, breastfeeding is more portable. I just need my breasts with me. So, I'm going to try my best to make a go of it!

Yeah, I need to get decent signature at some point.

Kathy, its pretty much difficult for every woman at first. Well I should say almost every, but I've only met one woman whos baby just latched on and on they went. So just decide its going to be difficult at first, but know that when you make it to 6 weeks its going to get easy and awesome. And join the LLL if you can, they'll help you.

Yes I will be breastfeeding my baby. I breastfeed all 6 of my children.... With my first child I found it difficult. But I've learned something with every child.

I go to my first LLL meeting this week! I have never seen anyone nurse (I feel pretty clueless), so it should be eye-opening/very interesting. My sister nursed one of her children but she always went into another room (and we're not really close, so no help there). My mother didn't, so she's no help either. I have books on the subject but the positioning looks hard/odd when you look at it in books. I want some more real life examples!

I know what you mean, no one in my family breastfed either. My SIL hid in a room too. That doesn't do much for helping the family accept breastfeeding is normal any natural.

I will try to nurse next time, but I had some medical problems with nursing Joshua (that's why he is on formula now), so I am worried that I'll have the same problems with my next child.
