Kind of a pointless thread but I've had a very hard time with breastfeeding, I went through a horrible lack of supply from a postpartum infection causing my daughter to lose weight, then had to relactate and come to terms with the fact that my daughter wasn't going to breastfeed and deal with exclusively pumping. I've pumped now for so long I don't remember a time that I didn't. So a couple days ago I had my first appointment for my current pregnancy and my doctor asked how long I had breastfed DD. So I told her my whole story all over again and she said "okay well I'll write down 1 year + ". It kind of shook me for a second I've always felt like I was a failure from the beginning, and never really felt like a breastfeeder as I always pumped. So I dunno just kind of feeling proud of myself now and wanted to get it all out. I'm hoping with this baby things go a lot smoother with breastfeeding.

That's amazing! EPing would be harder than normal BFing IMO and for you to make that kind of committment to your LO when many others would have switched to formula (no judgement here!) is inspirational and selfless.

Thanks everyone, I think for the first time I've stopped being hard on myself and am just being proud of everything I've done. It definitely wasn't easy.
