Oh gosh Kallie, I had no idea you and Emma went through so much in your first few months of breastfeeding! Way too go for hanging on getting through it!

I know I stared at a can of formula sitting there on the counter for at least the first few weeks contemplating "just one bottle" but never did!! And I am so glad, here we are almost a year later!

I just want to add that something I always tell new nursing moms who I meet or moms who are thinking about nursing is you have to change your thinking - I believe that nursing has never been easy in the first weeks and that is just the way it is. Our society in the US that wants everything fast and everything easy has a hard time with breastfeeding. It's just not naturally easy for the majority of women! And THAT in itself is NATURAL! I didn't mean to thread jack, sorry Kallie! I'm done
Mom to Austin, Ethan, Anna, and Camryn
