    Made it to 3 months! :o)

    After a really difficult first 4 weeks, I am happy to say that we are still going strong with breastfeeding. I started out with cracked nipples which then led to holes, mastitis and then a small bout of thrush. Overcoming all of that, we are still going strong and little miss weighed in at 6.4kg yesterday at her 3 month check.

    I am sooo very proud of her and myself!!
    Just wanted to share.
