Happy 6 months of breastfeeding!! Isnt it easy hey!!!?? WRONG! Don't think I've ever done anything I'm more proud of. We've had severe tongue tie, bleeding nipples, blocked ducts, baaaaad mastitis that took 2 different types of antibiotics to kill, then because I was so ill my milk supply dropped down, which I had to tirelessly work hard to get back, hours and hours of extra pumping and lactation enducing drugs... ALL in the first few weeks..... THEN Eti was diagnosed with cows milk protein allergy that also turned out to be soya and egg allergy too, so I can't eat anything containing even a scrap of those products as they go through to milk. A few allergic reaction slip ups later, lots of label reading and only eating out a handful of times (literally) in the last 6 months...... and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. WHY!? The ease of it now, the bond, the health benefits for me and Etienne. I know a handful (yes that's all) of women have no problems whatsoever with boobie feeding, but MOST of us do. Even if that's from a cracked nip to no milk supply at all. I STILL feel as though there's a taboo attached to feeding even though all I've had personally is support and positivity around it. I will be feeding Etienne until he is ready to stop. My hats go off to every single breastfeeding, milk pumping super mamma out there! **Note** this is not at all in any way "dissing" formula! I formula fed Jess! Just a bit of extra love for breastfeeding today on my silver breastfeeding badge day! Go boobs!
