My dd is 1 today and is still bf. I've never gloated about this but I just fancied a little gloat today...! After struggling with agonising scabby nipples, feeding strikes and all night cluster sessions, I'm so pleased that we persevered and made it to where we are now. To anyone who's having a hard time, it really does get better.

Not gloating at all - fell proud of yourself for getting through so much! Well done - here's to many more months

Well done smile
Needed to see your post this morning. Have just had the worse night with ds2 who is 7.5 months and ebf.
He's using me as a dummy all night and I feel like giving up!

grin I was also proud to reach 1 year!
Although I'm still breastfeeding at 16 months and beginning to worry it will never end.
Happy birthday to your DC!

Well done! We’re nearly there too smile

tamdin ds went through a similar phase at the same age, so I sympathise. It will pass.

Thanks v much all - I'm so proud of her and our journey together - she's such a happy, healthy little thing. She only bf's twice a day now, but is starting to realise that she could theoretically grab some at any time - this morning she was sitting on the changing table and pulled my dressing gown open and latched on before I realised what she was doing! Hmmm....

DD2 does that too, if there is so much of a sniff of exposed boob, she finds me and attacks!!
