Proud — The Bump
Stay at Home Moms


My DS turned 1 yesterday.  We had a lovely party on Saturday while we were back in VA for Thanksgiving (so that family could be there, and since we don't know anyone here).

I've been a bit reflective the past few days, thinking about the past year.  One thing I am proud of is our persistence to stick with nursing.  I had REALLY wanted to nurse our son, but the first month was soooo rough.  We battled mastitis, thrush (several times) and DS refusing to latch without a nipple shield (resulting in LOOOONG feedings).  I'm glad that we pushed through!  We made it to the 6 month mark exclusively nursing and then have been nursing with solid foods since then.  It's so much more enjoyable now, and I'm glad we pushed through!

  • Way to go!

    I am pretty nervous about being able to nurse this new LO.  I wasn't very successful with my other two.  Determined to get past the first couple of weeks this time.
