    okay so in the beginning i did not feel sexual at all i didnt even want my husband to sit by me really lol!! It definately took a while but it also didnt help that my doc sewed up my stitches too tight so i was still sore 8 weeks pp. i would say i started feeling more sexual at about 4 months pp. and I have a confession to make. I use to think it was wierd that anyone would breastfeed past 12 months- like i really thought that was a no no and there was no reason for it. but now that im ebf my son i feel soo different!!! Im going to breastfeed my baby until he is ready to wean, only problem is that i everyone i know feels the way i use to feel about bf past 12 months so… im sure i will have to deal with comments about it. my mother in law bf my husband till he was 15 months and she is very supportive and often expresses how much she misses it. and i dont know what my husband will think, i havent talked to him about it yet.

    Personally I think everyone has their own insecurities when it comes to raising their children. We all hope we are doing what is right. FF or BF is in that category. BF moms are preceived as being ‘gross’ while FF moms are preceived as not doing what is right for Baby. We all have our reasons for why we do things. I have my bias as well because I breastfeed. I’m a proud breastfeeder and I don’t care who knows it. I won’t tell a FF mom in the store that OMG you are bad but for some reason people think it’s ok to come up to a breastfeeding mom and tell her all the reasons why she shouldn’t. It confusing to me why it’s so lopsided. Going back to 16 and pregnant. I really wish they would feature a strong teen mom who does breastfeed. Who gets through the struggles of learning how to do it and succeeds. If they were to do that maybe the lopsidedness would change a bit.

    I have a question… My baby is 2.5 weeks old, and bf’ing like a pro. My only concern is that everything says that she should wake up on her own every 2-3 hours to feed, but she doesn’t. We’re looking at every 3-5 hours. Once she wakes up she eats for a really long time (1-1.5 hrs). Is this a problem? She’s gaining weight, and definitely has an adequate number of dirty diapers… Do I need to be worried, or is she just a rare baby that eats more less frequently?

    styx – I agree. I never brought it up. If I did then it was about self weaning and baby led weaning in passing. I also do everything when it comes to baby food. My husband makes dinner for my now toddler but didn’t make the food or even feed it to him when he was younger. It was all up to me. By the time a year hit he already knew that I was an avocate for self weaning and going more then 2 yrs. He was breastfed for over 3 so it’s normal for him. He had a younger sister so Mom was breastfeeding her when he was 4-7yrs. Formula was never an option for me, never even brought up.

    Ash: at one point I was going through 18-20 breastpads a DAY!! And like ellasmommy, there were several times that I squirted all the way across the room!! Still, at 6 weeks pp, there are times when I bf on one side and leak THROUGH the breastpad on the other, and end up soaking myself and my daughter. You’re not alone. And again, congratulations!! Bri: chocolate formula?!? Good lord!! And we wonder why we are such an overweight country!!

    Mere-and-girl-You can absolutely nurse your LO when you are sick. I did when I had food poisoning last month. I also nursed this past weekend with a fever of 104.6. I have posted a link for you of situations when not to breastfeed (they are pretty drastic).

    People wonder why I’m anti-formula. It’s not the mothers but the companies themselves. I understand you don’t have a business not to make a profit but they are putting profits ahead of the lives and welfare of the children. That’s not the right idea. Main reason why many of us boycott Nestle. Enfimal and Simalac aren’t much better but at least they don’t market directly to third world countries….as much.

    yeah, i hate my work. it’s retarded. i work retail, and i work 18 hours a week, but it’s a hard 18 hours! i do the opposite of my hubby, and he’s a manager and does weird hours. So i work Monday 4:30pm to 10:30pm, Wed 4:30AM to 10:30AM, and Sunday 7am to 1pm. So it’s totally all over the place, and i can’t get into a schedule for sleep. Oh well. It’s stupid, but whatever.
