    Default Celebrating 2 years

    Well after after many challenges, including; Reflux, mastitis, sleep deprivation, lack of support, pregnancy and feeding for 4 months with a hole in one nipple.... i am proud to say that we have joyfully reached 2 years of breastfeeding together

    I never thought our journey would lead us here nor last this time frame, but as we beat each challenge i kept moving the goal posts and now look forward to tandem breastfeeding both my boys.



    It's been one of my greatest achievements to make it so far despite the adversity i faced, including the times i wanted to give up myself. To succeed at this and have this as one constant in my life has had so much benefit on other facets of my parenting aswell.

    So we celebrate 2 years and while i sometimes wonder if i'm nuts to give tandem a go, and am scared of night feeding two, its also a challenge i'm ready for so bring it on!

    Congratulations MB, that is a huge, huge effort.

    Having just watched my second DS also self-wean before making that elusive 2 yr mark, I, more than anyone, can really appreciate how wonderful this is for you. You are such an inspiration. I hope your incredible success and strength to overcome hurdles, can help others to reach their goals (even those they don't know they have yet!).

    Thank you for your congrats, I have received so much support from BB members during these challenges, without which i'm not sure where we'd be today. It was also when the Gentle forums were initially created that i first began looking in to full term breastfeeding and other child-led parenting values, so for that i am also greatful.
