    How long have you been feeding your baby?

    im only on month two and felt it wasnt long but when i think about how for 2 whole months i have been growing a child by just sitting holding him and watching him eat while my body automatically does the rest then i think its pretty amazing and something to be proud of even if its a week or a month!

    5 months now! I often stop and think like that, its amazing really how our bodies can produce enough milk to substain a whole other being.
    Its so much easier then bottle feeding too, breastfeeding all the way for us :D

    Just over 34 months now. He is down to nursing once a day, and I am limiting it to 2 minutes. It just hurts too much now. My nipples are just so sensitive being pregnant, which is weird because I didn't have any kind of soreness now.

    19.5 months here! It's so surreal thinking that it will be in the 20's soon. :wacko: I barely made it to the 1 month mark. And now I love it! :cloud9:
