Before i had my 2nd dd (ddno.1 was ff, me young and uninformed), I couldnt even read the breastfeeding chapters in the baby books....i dont know why but i found it disturbing, but strangely i knew i wanted to give it a go for a while....
6 months later and we are still bf!
I think it is the most special time of my life, the only word i can use to describe the feeling of closeness when we are feeding is "heaven".
Even now with treatment resistant thrush the thoughts of stopping bf makes me lonesome. I only ever intended feeding for 3 months but now see how i could stop for another while, especially as i am returning to work next week, as i know we will have our specia; times together.
