Breastfeeding Goals

Michele was incredibly fun to work with, so full of energy and laughter. She was very excited to share her breastfeeding accomplishments with her third child.

“She’s the longest I’ve breastfed; 5 1/2 months. I’m really proud.”

“My other two I only breastfed until 8 and 12 weeks. This one, she wouldn’t take the bottle until 4 months! My goal is 6 months.”

I had to laugh when she told me “I think it helped that I had mastitis with her, so I needed to keep breastfeeding.” What a way to make lemonade out of lemons!

“I got more help with the 3rd child. Before I had no one guiding me or helping me with the latch. I feel I lot more confident too, maybe it’s the age… You learn and gain experience as a mother.

With my first I wasn’t too confident. I didn’t have help, with this child I’ve had so much support and encouragement with breastfeeding.

She’s an easy quiet baby.”

When I asked her how she felt about continuing her breastfeeding journey, she was pretty honest. “I’m not sure what will happen whens he gets teeth!” A common fear for those who haven’t nursed a toothy infant. But from personal experience I can assure you all, it’s fine… And they don’t bite… Much…

Oh, Michele, it was such a pleasure to work with you! I loved your energy and your little one is gorgeous. Congratulations on achieving your breastfeeding goals, I’m so happy to hear that you have received support and encouragement which often is the key factor for a successful journey. You are a lucky woman!

You are amazing.

You are beautiful.

You are truly divine.
