Good for you, Stella! Always nice to have a bit of a boost about these things too.
Wish I'd been able to carry on past 4 months, I miss it even now (he refused to stay still, would push himself off me whilst latched on, so it was getting just too sore/difficult) Ah well, there's always next time- and next time I hope to follow your example!
was at my antenatal visit the other day and was really pleased to see the literature on bf they were giving out, all really positive, all the facts correct, promoting feeding til 2 years and beyond, warnig that the first few weeks are rocky but it gets better (when i had dd we were told if it hurts you're doing it wrong and if they need to feed more than once every 2 hours they're not getting enough!)
and when i told the mw i was still feeding ds at 2 she didn't seem a bit surprised (unlike the mw when i was preg with ds who was horrified to discover i'd fed til 1 year and disgusted that i'd considered going longer )
really like this hospital compared to the one i had the other 2 dcs in!
have to wonder how much of a lentil weaver i come across as though when i went to the hospital when ds was 1 for a sprained ankle the doctor offered me pain killers and i refused as i was still bf-ing. she replied 'yes i presumed you were tbh'
