So I decided I was going to breastfeed. I was told it was difficult but very rewarding and that the first 7 days were the most difficult. They didn’t lie!! But I decided I would do it for at least 7 days, 5 weeks later and I’m still at it. I thought the other day that I alone have been keeping this little baby alive and she’s doing alright. It was a very weird feeling. She’s getting bigger, developing a personality and she’s thriving on what my body provides her. They didn’t tell you how much that was going to affect you.
That’s not to say that it still isn’t difficult. She’s going through a bit of a growth spurt at the moment. That translates into she wants to feed all the time. It’s difficult because it not like anyone else can do it. In the end I’m glad I stuck with it. I know it’s the best thing for her. I suppose I’ll get used to smelling of spoiled milk and having my boobs leak all the time!!
