Update

I have nothing new really to write about. The nursing is coming along. Little by little the milk is building up and feeling less sore.

Wyatt is so funny. He is used to having a stiff nipple shoved into his mouth. Now, he acts like he is being teased with it being brushed against him but never shoved in! He has to relearn how to do it by going after it which is new to him. He is getting it though and it gets better every day. I love it. I had forgotten what a beautiful experience it is.

People who have a choice and choose not to nurse are really missing out. I have been drilling my boys about it. I tell them to make sure their wives nurse! So many women don't want to ruin their boobs. The Lady who I talked to who adopted 5 and nursed them all just got her first grandchild. He daughter in law isn't going to nurse for that reason. Imagine how she feels about that!

Anyway, if there is a way, breast is best.

I was broken in half, when I couldn't nurse Ethan. I hoped and hoped he could learn how. I tried. At least I pumped, and he got the milk.

I agree with you. Breast is best.

Well, unless the Mom is doing drugs, or ya know.

*grin*

You're a good Mom, Miss Meliss

I truly didn't have a clue that this was an option when I adopted or I would have tried it for sure. I'm glad it's working out well for you.

I was told by a friend who bottle-fed that breasts are ruined by the pregnancy and that you just might as well go ahead and nurse since it's best for the baby anyway. I nursed all four of mine and couldn't recommend it more.

YAY! Glad to hear that you are having success!
That is terrific!
