Tell us about your breastfeeding experience.
We had a difficult start to our nursing but once we got things figured out breastfeeding was so convenient for us! It was wonderful to not have to lug around bottles and formula and just feed on-demand. We've been nursing for 2 years and we're weaning now.
Your Breastfeeding Story
When my daughter was very little I thought that maybe it was inappropriate to nurse in church. I didn't want to accidentally show something but was fundamentally opposed to covering my daughter's head with a blanket. My husband watched as I fiddled and fussed trying to make sure that no one saw any part of my breast. Finally he looked at me and said "If God made breasts to feed babies, don't you think it's OK to nurse here in church?" Aha! A voice of reason. So thankful for my supportive husband.
- Practice nursing in front of a mirror. Being able to breastfeed in public is very helpful and saves you from having to find a changing room or remembering to pump.
