Hun, you are truly amazing and inspirational for coming so far since that trauma as a child, thank God that you have found such peace, healing and restoration in Him. I believe that by His stripes we are healed, not just physically but emotionally as well. HE is GOOD!
I can completely understand you're feeling that way towards breastfeeding

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I have really been encouraged recently and God has been teaching me about His Father's heart. Since having my son and in particular breastfeeding, I have really learned about His character. Sounds a bit odd doesn't it? But those feelings of holding your baby close, conforting them, nourishing them really shows me a lot about God's desire to hold us, His children close to him.

When I first had my LO, I found the BF section so helpful and loved it because there was never any arguments or drama and everyone was there to support one and other. I've noticed now there are a few "militant" style parents. You're welcome to pick my brains and if theres other ladies you know that can help, thats great.

I am praying for you and your precious little one

thank you hun! it means a lot. and i dont think it sounds odd at all what you experienced. God is so good!

i first thought about BF with my 4th. he was the first pregnancy after i had been saved. it was a passing thought though, i was still pretty uncomfortable at the thought. then with my 5th, i thought about it even more. i think i didnt have very much to go on though. no one around to go to and there was a lot of complications in the pregnancy, that kept me distracted. he had very low fluid an they had to monitor us all the time. when he was 4 months old i felt very healed and began praying that if God had another child in store for us that He would help me to give it a try. dont know where that prayer even came from, must have been the Spirit. funny thing was that i started leaking milk from one side. remember this was 4 months after giving birth and long after my milk had dried up. i got online and found out you can start BF after drying up. i looked into it a bit and was asked by someone to be a surrogate for them. while praying about that i decided to not try to BF. i asked God to tell my Dh if we should do the surrogacy thing for our friend. i really thought we would end up doing that. my DH said he felt God didnt want us to do that, i was kinda stunned. a week later we found out we were pregnant again. God certainly has His miraculous ways!!!!

so sorry for the book thats how i got here with wanting to try. i have no one in my personal life to get help from. my DH is very supportive though. the only person that BF in my family was an aunt. she is very hard to be around though. she puts me down for FF even though she knows what happened. i dont feel confortable asking her for help. so i guess Jesus and i will be on yet another walk together. if He can save me, forgive me, heal me, certainly He can help me to BF!! i have a class saturday that i hope helps and i try to read as much as i can. also the hospital im birthing at has a whole lactation dept that help while your there and even after.

im positive it will work out. if it happens to not i will have peace still. we pray over the formula we use for our other kids and know that God is who makes it holy and nourshing. im very bonded with my children. it sounds funny, but even though i bottle fed all of them it was a lot like BF without the breast. im the only one who feeds them and i never lay them down with their bottle. they are cuddled at every feeding. my DH bonds with them other ways, like bathing and playing with them.

That's beautiful hun, and so true that it is God who makes their milk (and our food for that matter) nourishing. The bond we have with our children is precious, no matter how they are fed

I've been so encouraged by your story Hun

how are you doing hun? im getting close to the end of this pregnancy and preparing for labor and adding our newest blessing.

my OB has scheduled my induction date for march 17. the amniotic fluid has dropped very low. its not low enough for them to induce at this point, its better to keep him in to grow. but if it drops much lower they will have to up the date. he is also not moving like he should so i have had to do some nonstress tests to check on him. i really wanted him to make it to march, and im so thankful its here!!! praise the Lord for His greatness, He is so good!

i see you are ttc in a few months, we will pray for your family to be blessed with another child

Wow not long to go! And that is fantastic that bubba has stayed put until March - praise God! I will pray that he stays in there until His perfect time!

Yes, AF finally made a return the other day and forced us to have a chat about #2 and while we will continue to NTNP, I would ideally like to wait until September before we actively try as I would like to loose some weight first.

Isaac's conception was completely in God's timing, not ours so we will leave #2 in His hands as well! Best place to be!

How are you and your children going?
