am breastfeeding me baby girl, she is almost 4 months old. She is my fifth child, but the first i have breastfed for longer than six weeks. I am so proud! Breastfeeding is very rewarding, so good for baby, and for mom, too. I won't lie, it may not be easy at first, but it gets soo much easier at around 6-8 wks if you can hang in there. It is very helpful to have support from your family, too, and not have ppl pressure you to give formula. That happens too often!
