    That is great news love. Trust me when I say that there is not one BFing mama here who has had those same thoughts about quitting. BFing is hard at times, and I know I had moments where I thought F this, but I stuck it out, kept going, and now it is soooooo much easier. I love it!

    Really well done to you. I also had thoughts of giving up in the first few weeks. Its really hard, you dont know truelly how hard until you try. Things will be easier from now. I found after 4 weeks things improved alot. Keep up the good work :hug:

    Thanks! I am about to give birth to my first baby in 2 weeks, very nervous about breastfeeding. In-laws are suggesting that we "stock up some formula" in case I don't have enough milk. I am having nightmares almost every night that I won't have enough milk for my baby.....I hope I can persevere and be successful like so many of you!

    :hug: Well Done !!! :happydance: There really does seem to be a point around the 1 month old mark where it just 'happens'. I wish I'd known that with my 2nd child, and I wouldn't have given up so quick. Enjoy it !!! :D

    its so true! Im really enjoying it now aswell, and to think on day 3 she was having bottles untill I spoke to the midwifwe and my mum and my friend and decided to try the breast again..soooo glad I did!

    I gave up early with my first child aswell....if I knew it got so much easier I also would have stuck at it for longer....feel kinda guilty my first child missed out a bit :-(

    well done babe2000 you must be so happy its worked out....good on you xxx
