Well... what's there to say...

I guess I'll just make this an introduction.

My name is Nicole, I am a single, teenage mother.

My daughter's name is Audrey Grace!

She, of course, means everything to me!

It's hard, and very challenging some days, but seeing her smile

at the end of the day always reminds me that it's all worth it!



Just wondering if there were any other teenage moms breastfeeding their little ones, as well...

Hi! I am also a teen mom. I was 17 when I had my daughter. She is now almost 10 months and I'm 18. I'm not single or breast feeding. But I have a lot of respect for single moms, especially single teen moms!! I would like to have teen moms as friends here on facebook, because it would be great to have someone to talk to who understands!!

I breast fed my daughter for 2 months and then I went back to school. It was hard breastfeeding her but now I wish I wld have kept with it. She is 9 months now. I got pregnant 2 months before my 16th birthday and I am now 17, and single. Being a mom is amazing and I love waking up to her with a big smile on her face. Babies are a joy. I plan to have more when I am settled in my own home and in a commited relationship.

Hi im a teen mum too i had my son, Alex, at 18, 6 days before my birthday. I am also pregnant with my second one due in January, I'm 20 in October. I breastfed Alex until he was 4 months old but then he started to nip at me. I am happy to hear that there are other teen mums that have fed their children, I must now point out that I obviously have no problem with bottle fed children as Alex was, as I know so many girls who I went to school with who haven't breast fed their children. So good on you!! x

Hey i was a teenage mum i fell pregnant at 17 and had my wee girl just after my 18th birthday i hate the way people look down there noses at us but i think we could do a much better job than some adults can. I hate when you see some children at 2 years old that still have a bottle! I never breastfed as i was too weak after giving birth but i hope do it with my next child x

I was 17 when I had my son and was still in High school but graduated and am now 23 and about the get my bachelors degree from Ohio State University. I also have 9 month old twins. It is awesome that you are breastfeeding. When I was a teenager I was too self conscious to breastfeed and then it just didnt work out with the twins. I am sorry you are single, I was for a long time too until I met my husband a little over a year and a half ago and life is a million times better now. I wish you all the luck in the world! try to enjoy every moment! My son is going into 1st grade this year and I miss his baby.toddler days sooo much!
