    Beautiful!!! I'm another one who can't wait to be BF again. It truly is a wonderful feeling, one that I believe every mum should try at least once.

    You need to surround yourself with support and remind yourself it's best for you and baby. Up to everyone what they do,, but like you I want to bf too. I think it's so important. Xxx

    Breastfeeding is the single hardest thing I've ever done! 4 weeks in & I can't even count how many times I've said I've given up, but I've stuck with it & there is nothing more satisfying then seeing the scales go up & knowing its all mummy milk. & the bonding time lush :)

    I think if you set out knowing its hard, then you'll be more prepared!

    Glad i'm not the only one that cried when reading it. :)

    We're designed to do this, so WE CAN DO IT! I agree Ruth and Saralouise, I definitely expect it to be hard, well done for persevering. The 1st 6 weeks are the worst apparently. xxx

    Crying buckets over here!! Probably because I can't breastfeed :-( Tried with my DS but due to a problem with my body and iron storage, means I cannot produce milk :-( Just have white water.

    Least I can say I tried, gutted.

    Aww gemmy that's crap. I'm sorry. At least you wanted to and tried though, we can't help what our bodies will or won't do. I want my non intervention homebirth, but if I can't do it for some reason then I'll have to accept that. As long as we want the best for our babies and try to give them that that's all you can ask xxx

    Thank you!!! He is a beautiful, healthy, now 1-year-old cheeky monkey, so I can't ask for anything more. Berate myself every so often, but there's nothing I can do. Can't even change anything for if I have another. Oh well!!

    Really hope you get the birth experience you want, but as long as you and baby are both safe and healthy, that's all we can want!

    Awww I'm sure he's a real credit to you. We have to accept some things are beyond our control. As a control freak I find that hard but pregnancy has certainly proved that point! Xx
