    Thanks for this post. With my first baby, I tried for a couple of weeks, got mastitis, stopped and never looked back. With my second, I was determined to give it a go, got further but she wasn’t putting on much weight, I had a lot going on in my life at the time and stopped. I have felt guilty ever since. Looking back, I feel the difference was that I was fine after I had my first baby, whereas I had untreated PND after my second. Both of my children are absolutely fine, by the way, even having a mum who has been hospitalised for depression.

    I really enjoyed this article! Although I breast feed all six of my children, I never had any of those problems. I was to lazy to wash bottles and once the feeding started, I could escape in a good book. The todlers could play around my feet with their toys, or have a cookie. I really enjoyed my babies, then they turned into TEENAGERS—YIKES

    Two months nursing became such an indescribably pleasure …the intimacy that u reach with your baby when he starres at u while he sucks on your breast it has no price …
