I was fortunate to have breastfed Princess for two years. That was one of my main goals as a mom. I wanted to make sure that my baby received the best start. I’ve had conversations with other moms in the past about nursing, and quickly realized that it’s a hot button issue.
I would never want to come of like a preacher. Whatever a mom chooses is her business. Some tell me that they didn’t produce enough milk. Some have even told me that nursing made them feel uncomfortable. I remember one mom telling me that she doesn’t want her child sucking on her boob.
I have my own personal views on nursing. For me, it’s a must. Breastfeeding has allowed me to develop a strong bond with my child and it saved me a ton of money. I didn’t have to buy any formula.
Now that baby number two is on the way, I plan on doing the same. With the passing of the Affordable Care Act, I can also take advantage of getting a free breast pump. You can find more information in my recent post, I got my breast pump covered by insurance and you can too at www.whattoexpect.com.
After reading, maybe more moms will consider nursing as an option.
