Tomorrow my little girl will turn 4, and I have been thinking back to her birth and all of the others, and I began to think about being pregnant for the first time.
As you all know I have successfully breastfed all six of my children and have enough milk for most of the East Coast!!
But what made me want to breastfeed. I hear so often why someone chose NOT to breastfeed or why someone chose To bottlefeed, but I would like to know
WHAT MADE YOU BREASTFEED ?
I can remember a mum coming into college whilst I was doing my Nursery Nursing course, talking to us about breastfeeding, the two mums that I babysat for also breastfed, but my mum breastfed me for only 9 weeks, so I wouldn't say she has been a major influence in my decision.
The midwife that was my mentor during my maternity placement is the breastfeeding specialist for the area, but I don't recall her pushing it on me, but I never considered not breastfeeding my baby.
I would be interested to know, and I shall also be asking the ladies at the Baby Cafe why they chose to breastfeed
