Lovely, thanks! Really made my day.

(Although from the studies I've read, the IQ benefit kicks in if you breastfeed even for the first six months)

I love this post. This may sound silly but breastfeeding Lily has been 1 of my biggest achievements, having been 1 of the hardest things I've ever done physically and emotionally. If I said this to people that know me they'd probably think I was exagerrating as I have a successful career and have done many of the things I wanted to in my life. But in the beginning I thought I'd never get past a few weeks-my milk was late and she lost loads of weight which was devastating and I felt like the worst mother ever. On Tues I will have been feeding her for 4 months and I've never been more proud of myself : )

Thanks for posting this. I always felt some guilt for not going longer with DS, but this makes me accept it more. I'm lucky enough to be able to breastfeed again. It's only been 8weeks with DD but going great and not planning on stopping until she's ready   :D :-*
