Wednesday I can officially say that I have breastfed Asher for one year.... And I'm proud to say that. Today I was thinking back to the breastfeeding thoughts that went through my noodle before I had him, our first months of breast feeding, and our future of breastfeeding.. I can remember being so worried about being able to nurse Asher and now I look at how far we have come and how good we are at it...
I mean we did have our ups and downs... having to use a nursing shield for the first few months and I wasn't the greatest when it came to pumping, but overall it's been so wonderful! Nursing is seriously one of the best things you can do as a mama and it's super affordable. I managed to save $1100.00 this past year by breastfeeding! I should reward myself ;)...
Now that I have made it to a year I'm wondering when to start weaning Asher... When did you wean your little? Did you let them self wean? Thursday we go to the doctor so I will be asking her about nursing past the first year!
Here my nursing must haves from this past year...
1. Zoe Organics Nipple Balm - Chapped nips are the worst things ever! This balm is hands down my favorite!
2. Boppy - Great for nursing during the younger months
3. Nursing Bras - A MUST, Target and H&M have great affordable nursing bras!
4. Medela Pump
6. Nursing Contact Shield - Not a must have for all mamas but these helped me be able to nurse during first few months!
