When I tell Lucas or Molly or Maddie or Morgan what nursing means to me, I will tell them it means the world. There is nothing I have done before or will do after that is more important, more wonderful, more loving then breastfeeding. I hope every mother gets to experience the wonder and the joy of breastfeeding. Yes, the joy. It may be hard at first, but what worth doing isn’t hard at first? I think the trials of the first days/weeks help the sense of accomplishment and power when breastfeeding finally clicks. I wouldn’t change a single thing about how I nursed any of my children. I can say with pride that I may have had deep issues with nursing Lucas, but he and I persevered and came through it, and have had a lovely breastfeeding relationship since.
