Turning a corner with breastfeeding
I'm finally turning a corner with this breastfeeding (BF) thing. It is now week nine of my child's life and I'm finally able to BF without pain. This sucks because I only planned on BF for three months (12wks). So the long and short of it is....... After suffering for 2.5 months, enduring cracked, sore, and what looked like burnt nipples, a blocked milk duct, major latching on issues and the guilt/shame of feeling like you are unable to feed your own baby, I have only two weeks to BF my baby without pain before the weaning begins. Go figure......Such is life.
