The Breastfeeding Diaries: Stephanie from Stephenomenal Life
I was adamant about breastfeeding from the day I found out I was pregnant. My best friend had had a baby a few months before I got pregnant and I learned all about the benefits and I knew I wanted them for my baby. That’s about as far as I got in thinking about it though. I figured my son would latch on the second after I pushed him out after a wonderful, peaceful, natural labor and we’d just figure it out as we went along… I was totally wrong.

I enjoyed this one a lot. How awesome of your friend to face time and help with latch issues! It's so important to have support. I feel the same way about the convenience of nursing with naps, bedtime, etc. and feeling no need to wean (mine is 21 months and still going). Your counter drying photo looked just like mine. I don't miss it though! Great post, thanks for sharing!
That's awesome that Rueben just turned one and you're still going. My little one is turning one next week and we have no plans on weaning yet either. I have to say I remember those nights when it would get dark and I'd be jealous of everyone that just got to go to bed. To be honest, my son still has never slept through the night – not even close, so sometimes I still have that envy. I know it will end someday and I'll be glad I was there for him.
Such an awesome story after a rough start. And I LOVE the name Rueben. A favorite of mine forever!! Great job!
You've had a wonderful experience with breastfeeding and it is nice of you to share your story. Mothers encouraging mothers is the best!
