Hi girls, I don't know where to begin. I loved breastfeeding but had problems with it. So we even didn't get to the full 6 months mark, when my DS started to prefer bottle to my boobies. It still hurts me and with this baby I hope to breastfeed longer. So, just wanted to say, that please don't be pressured to stop after a year... I still give my DS a bottle before bedtime and one at 10pm, and just yesterday when I was giving those to him I had that incredible sadness that I can't still breastfeed. I am giving a bottle to my baby but not my milk. I hope I am explaining it right... I really wish, that instead a bottle he would have a breastfeed. Before I had him, I thought it is a bit "strange" to breastfeed past the certain age (for me it was around a year), but I mean, if he still wants a milk feed, it would have been so much better ot give him my own milk.
