By seven weeks, nursing was quite familiar and pain free. I made the decision that it was time to try a bottle experiment.
When I was originally nervous about whether I’d be able to keep up, another pumping mom at my job gave me her perspective.
My daughter is eight now. She suffers from allergies; some food and some environmental.
I remember seeing a phone number for La Leche League on a pamphlet, but no one ever told me what La Leche League was or how it could help me.
I never would have been able to work and nurse my babies if it weren’t for that IBCLC!
This is how I began. I set a date when I would begin the battle and then set out to get everything ready.
Like many mothers, I knew that breastmilk was best but assumed that formula was just about as good.
