SO, since I can't be promoting national breastfeeding month hands on (ha!), I leave you with this:
In all seriousness, breastfeeding is a strange and miraculous thing. After having two children, you'd think I was an expert. A few weeks ago, I was in Nashville training to become a DONA certified doula and boy did I learn a lot, particularly about breastfeeding and how to help moms get started. It's not always an easy thing to learn, although it is natural.
Anyways, there's a lot I could say but for now, I'm just sad/relieved that my baby weaned himself at 11 months old. I miss my baby and the few quiet moments I was able to grab with him throughout the day. I also missed my "freedom" and am glad that Lazzy and I are both a little more independent these days. I am always thankful that I was able to breastfeed both my boys for any length of time at all. Like I said, it's a strange and miraculous thing; breastfeeding.
