Well the reason i am posting is all in the title of the post.
I would really like to try & breastfeed my son. Now my age being 21 i do not many people that have started feeding and continued to do so for more then a couple of weeks, as they gave up, got bored or milk supply dried up to quickly.
You read about medical benefits to you and to baby at the drs office but never hear any personal experiences. I would like to hear them please :)
The only ones i have had so far have been bad or unflattering but i have been able to deflect. Such as its painful (well yes i would so assume so but so was labour), its hard work (lifes never easy), better nutrients in formula (well i doubt it as breastmilk is au natural).
Although i have been able to deflect negative comments for some time its started to wear me down and i am looking to find the reason to why i wanted to breastfeed in first place.
I need to be told the positives!!
Love to you all
