We are still breastfeeding yes little man is 6 months now so just entering the world of baby led weaning! I plan to continue BF until he's 12 months and I go back to work. Once I knew I'd cracked it, I knew I'd stick with it as we've done the hard work so might as well get the benefits! Obviously I ditched expressing in the end but I started by just pumping off what's left after a feed. I believe dry pumping for a bit longer once you're empty boosts your supply! I certainly didn't run out! More like the opposite lol which was why I stopped! It didn't have enough benefit for us but if you have someone else to take LO for a few hours then there's a much bigger advantage. You're so right about support being luck of the draw. Community midwives and the local BF group run by the health visitors were great. It was the support in hospital that was terrible. I understand they're busy but don't encourage women to breastfeed, make out it will be easy and then refuse to support them when they struggle on the back of a difficult birth which is the reason they're in hospital in the first place! I really didn't shout loud enough when I was in but I was just doing whatever it took to get through it as I knew by this point it was only going to be one night. In hindsight I was basically damaging my nipples more than I realised and probably gave myself an uphill battle afterwards. I think after such a good pregnancy where I wasn't even slightly hormonal, I just didn't expect the hormone crash that I got on top of everything else that had happened. At least I know better if I ever manage to talk my husband into another lol!! Glad everything is going well for you. Time really does fly. Can't believe we're halfway into mat leave already!
