Hi ladies! I'm so excited that more moms are joining! It's so cool to see the other women due the same time as me! I feel like this makes us friends :)
I wanted to say that if anyone is thinking about breastfeeding, or not sure what she wants to feed, I am here to help anyway I can
I breastfeed Eric, who is now 1 1/2 and vie been through a lot, like nipple pain, using shields, flat nipple, overabundant milk, heavy let down, worrying about supply, plugged ducts, mastitis (2 times), and I have since been devoting a bunch of time looking into every research, facts, recommendations, tips, special conditions, etc.
I don't want to come off as a know it all, I just found I am passionate about breastfeeding and since learning all about it, I feel confident helping anyone!
I have many many websites of health facts to back up my advise because it's no good unless it's true right!
So, please feel free to ask me anything about breastfeeding! It would make my day to be able to help, encourage, or inform someone!
*warning* I have to note, I get a bit upset when moms discourage each other from breastfeeding with horror stories, or misinformed facts, or myths/wives tales. so please, even if you couldn't breastfeed, or didn't choose to, please don't discourage other moms from doing so!
So please, I'm an open book, ask away!
I promise, I'm a nice person :) just passionate!
