Hey everyone, :)

my name's Sara, I'm 25 years old and mother of two boys, L (4.5yo) and V (22mo). L was breastfed with no issues until he was 4y1m1d old. I nursed him all through pregnancy, and he and V tandemnursed for 1y5.5m. V is still going strong, and I have no plans to wean him anytime soon. :) Both kids started solids late (L at 9.5m, V at 12m) and are now absolutely uncomplicated, they'll eat pretty much anything.
Myself, I'm currently a SAHM, although I'm training to be a doula. I'm also a lactation consultant and a babywearing instructor. Birth and babies are my passion! *g*
My name is Kaitlin, hi everyone!

Here's my story: engaged to Eric, mother to Ella Rose, 9 months who was born at home. She's got one little tooth poking through right now, which makes her kisses hurt! (she bites my bottom lip)

We've been a breastfeeding pair since 15 minutes after birth and have done very well the entire time. I LOVE feeding her, and am glad to be part of a group of other mothers who love breastfeeding too.

I'm planning on letting her as long as she wants. She's definitely interested in food now though, like a little puppy at our plates during each meal. Hates baby food unless I make it myself, has never taken a bottle or choo-choo.

Recently I've got this friend who asks me to go out after I put Ella down and I've had to decline...Ella always wakes up after I put her down at least 2-3 times before I actually go to bed myself and I'm the only one who can put her back down. It's hard to decline, and I do want to go, but just can't! Her obvious disappointment makes me feel bad, and being a people pleaser, makes me wish Ella would take a bottle sometimes.

Looking forward to being a part of this group!
Hello! I am Andi. I am 22 and have two wonderful children with another one on the way. Noah is three and was only breastfed for a few short weeks due to my lack of knowledge and having no support whatsoever. I felt like such a failure, and vowed that it would never happen again with another child of mine. I researched relentlessly, and am currently nursing my 23 month old. I plan to tandem nurse as long as she wants to continue after the new baby is born. I am now a CLS (certified lactation specialist) and will be taking the IBCLC exam next year. I am extremely excited and nervous about that! I have been working with nursing moms in my local WIC office for just over a year now, and am proud to say that our county's breastfeeding rates are now well above the national average, and my goal is to keep getting them higher and higher!
