When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

O.K., here's what's new for me. I have decided to nurse my new little bundle of fun. I always wished I had with Gabe. I've talked to doctors and others about it and they all look at me like I am an idiot.
I admit to falling prey to their opinions. Yet there was always that side that wished. I went to my chiropractor yesterday. I just adore him. Anyway, he asked if I were thinking of that because he has another patient who adopted 5 kids and breast fed them all!!!
He gave me her number and I called her this morning. She used the Lact-Aid method. It is a little tube that goes into their mouth along with your nipple so they are getting their formula until your milk comes in. She said hers always came in withing about a week.
So, I am going to try it. I always loved nursing. I also think at this time of year, when he really needs the antibodies, he deserves to be getting them. It is not his fault that his birth mom screwed up. She was actually intending to breast feed. I really feel he deserves to be as healthy as possible. Anyway, it doesn't hurt to try.
So, If any of you out there have negative opinions about this, I don't want to hear it. On the other hand, if you want to be encouraging and supportive, feel free to say so!
