29 Must Read Breastfeeding Posts

Breastfeeding.  If you think about it, nursing is something we really only focus on for a very short period in our lives.  I nursed my kids collectively for about 2.5 years.  (Of course, if you do the twin math it is more like 3.66.  You get to double everything with twins, right? 😉 ) That’s a long time, but in terms of a lifetime, well, it isn’t that long.  I mean, I was in college longer than that.  Yet when you are in that time period it is everything.  You spend hours of time nursing, not to mention the hours of time spent thinking about it and worrying about it.

Nursing is physical, mental, and emotional.  It can be beautiful, painful, and time-consuming.  It is a relationship between you and your baby.  For something that seems like it should be so natural, there is a lot that goes into it!  To help out I have collected some of the best breastfeeding posts from the ladies of the BFBN.  They cover everything from how to overcome specific struggles to successes to how to wean. And yes, there are some about choosing not to breastfeed.  That is an important part of the conversation.

I hope these great posts can help you through your breastfeeding experience.
