After my wonderful experience with it, I have become passionate about breastfeeding and would like to encourage as many moms as possible to start and continue to breastfeed — that is a major reason why I started my blog, DagmarBleasdale.com
. No matter how long you choose to breastfeed — one week or four years — I want to be a resource and cheerleader for all new mothers because I believe most women can nurse their child with the right encouragement and support, of which there isn’t enough out there.
I am always sad when I hear other moms confess they succumbed to societal pressure or their own uncomfortable thoughts about extended breastfeeding. I am curious: how long did YOU breastfeed — three days, one month, ten months? And why did you stop — did you have problems with breastfeeding? Did you think it was time? Why? I’d love to hear from as many of you as possible so I can write articles that address the most common reasons for moms to stop breastfeeding. Please leave a comment here.
