Hi, I'm a mother or two who has been breastfeeding for three and a half years straight. I've had my breastfeeding ups and downs just like everyone else. When I had my son 4 years ago, I knew I wanted to breastfeed him. I didn't realize that I would need help. It's not that the nurses at the hospital didn't want to help, they just didn't know how. Many of them didn't breastfeed and the others tried the best they could in the time they had. I was even seen by the lactation consultant at the hospital and she was great but she ran out of there like she had a million other new moms to see. So there I was, sleep deprived, anxious, and all alone. I was bound and determined and guess what.....that was all it took. I made up my mind that I was going to nurse my baby no matter what....and I did for almost 3 years. So if you've made a choice to breastfeed but you are struggling, I'm here to help.
