it's that time again

Yep, it's world breastfeeding week. We've been lucky this time around and as a result, breastfeeding posts have been few and far between. Mercifully, perhaps. Eleanor and I have our ups and downs, of course, but in general it has been pretty smooth sailing. No supplementation has been necessary. If you're a new reader, that's a big deal. I'm BFAR (breastfeeding after reduction surgery) and though I nursed Oliver until just past his first birthday, it was not at all easy. It's not easy if you haven't had surgery, but BFAR presents special challenges.

So in honor of world breastfeeding week, I offer encouragement to all the breastfeeding moms (and their partners) out there. That's a great thing you're doing.

Yeah breastfeeding! And congratulations to you for giving it another try. May the rest of your nursing relationship be an easy one.

Congratulations on continued success! It can be so tough, but so very worth it.
