Hey! I’m Casey and I blog with my best friend, Sarah, at Real Suburbia. A 26 year old, stay at home, part time single mom. Married for 5 years to a man who works out of town most of the year, mother to an almost two year old named Wilder. I breastfed and pumped for 14 months.
My milk came in on Christmas Eve and I was miserable. I wanted to stop. I was so miserable and scared (yet again) of mastitis, that my mom ran to the store to buy me a pump. I was over producing. When I fed him, he would choke at the pressure and I knew I had to start pumping. I would feed on one side, which was perfect for him and then pump the other, switching every 2-3 hours when he would feed again. When he was 3 weeks old my husband finally got to feed him a bottle. He took it like a champ and nipple confusion was never an issue.
Love reading the breastfeeding diaries, thank you for sharing your story. I too, am struggling to lose weight while breastfeeding my six month old. Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when I say I'm nursing and haven't lost any weight. But I know nursing is best for baby so I'll worry about my weight after-while still eating healthy now. He is such a cutie! 🙂

Thank you for sharing! I also have been eating a lot because I keep hearing it is important to keep supply up but am worried about how that will affect my weight. And community is the most important thing. I'm not sure I would have even started breastfeeding if it wasn't for the Facebook group Milky Mommys.

many benefits of visiting this blog post because of the many articles that increase knowledge for me personally, thank you
I love reading other mother's stories of breastfeeding. I'm blessed to still be nursing my little girl. Best decision I ever made but definitely not always easy.
