Free Free I'm Free At Last!!!

I know the title makes it sound like I was in jail or something.....but it is just my way of saying I'm excited and proud to say that I'm now done breastfeeding my second child for a whole year! Baby Charlie has officially moved on to whole milk. It is always a rough road, but I'm glad I stuck to it. I have had two kids and never bought or fed a can of formula to either one!

The second time was a little easier for sure. No mastitis (huge plus!) Milk got low at some points, but not as low as with Savannah. No waking up at 2am to pump just so I would have enough for the next day. Both kids were very good at taking a bottle and then switching right back to me when I was home. I love the bond I have had with each one of them while breastfeeding, but at the same time so glad to be done. It is a lot of work!

Baby C is getting to be such a big boy! He is out of his baby carseat and looking like such a little man! Tomorrow is his 1 year birthday!!!

    Wow! You're awesome! I seriously wanted to nurse Rylie so bad and it just didnt work out. I was very hard on myself for it. I'm going to try with Remy to nurse but I do have formula already has a backup. It's such a hard thing to do, I'm amazed how you and others can make it a whole year. I might be emailing you for tips later =)
