    Just wanted to celebrate that I have made it to one year of breastfeeding! I was SO close to giving up in the early days because of low supply and having to top up with formula for the first few weeks. Tilly has basically self-weaned now and barely feeds 1-2 times a day, so I will call it a day some time very soon. I have loved every minute of it, even the times when she fights or bites. It has been very special.

    I hope this encourages other ladies with problems establishing BFing that they can be successful in the long term xxx

    Aww, thanks, girls!

    MrsWoody and Mum2betash - you've both done amazingly well already. Hats off to you too.
    Lorna - hope you can feed your next LO for longer, but there's nothing you could have done about her self weaning due to your pregnancy, so it's fine. You did brilliantly.
    Nicole Mummy - you're doing a fantastic job. Keep going and it will suddenly get much easier, I promise xxx

    Well done mummy and tilly! Such an awesome experience it must have been :love:

    I am so very very jealous of what we couldn't achieve :( I really really wanted to bf...
    Oh well 8 weeks of expressing it had to do. Hopefully she will be ok.
