Mommy Talk Tuesday {Breastfeeding}

The Not So Secret Confessions of a Second Time Mom

This weeks topic {Breastfeeding}:
Do/Did you breastfeed? What was the biggest challenge of breastfeeding or trying to breastfeed? What was/is your favorite part of breastfeeding? Do you think it's ok to nurse in public?

Breast is best, right?  At least it was for me and my babes:)
I have breastfed all my kids.  Bubba Love until 10months, then I got pregnant with Buddy Boy who nursed until 1, then I got pregnant with Baby C who nursed until 13 months, then I got pregnant again!
I had all the typical issues when beginning to breastfeed, but nothing that detoured me from it... in my opinion there was no other choice.  And after those first few weeks that are tough, breastfeeding seemed more convenient and worked well with my lifestyle.
I have lots of favorites when it comes to breastfeeding.  I love the snuggling and bonding, I love that it helps me lose weight, and I love that it makes me slow down on busy days.
And heck yes I nurse in public... why wouldn't I?  My baby is hungry and has needs no matter where I am!

Looking back though, I realize that I have had awesome support!  I also have never had a bad experience with nursing or nursing in public.  I think that has made me very confident and I think every woman should feel that way:)

Next weeks topic: {Letters to your Child/Children} Write a letter to your child or children and tell them anything you want to tell them. Post it as a blog post and then come back here and link up!

Wow that is so cool that you didn't think there was any other choice. I can't wait for that bonding time with my little one! Thanks for sharing,
