Breastfeeding my youngest has been a journey to say the least.  I've written a few posts about what we've all went through HERE.  To sum it up, Karebear had a Class IV lip tie and a Class II tongue tie, as well as some other oral concerns affecting proper transfer of milk.  It has been so emotional, as my other two older children were champion breastfeeders and I value all the benefits there are to nursing.
I've continued offering her breast while exclusively pumping for the past 18 months...exclusive pumping was the best option to provide my baby with optimal nutrition, but it's been very VERY difficult to pump so much and for so long. However, she has now learned how to nurse!  I hope that we will get to experience this every day.  I have our most recent successful "Latch Training" session on YouTube, so check it out!

  1. There's a lot we need to realize when it comes to supporting breastfeeding - it isn't easy and not everyone has personal support... knowing how to latch is basic, but it isn't always easy. Good post.
