Five years!!!

It's my Elliot's fifth birthday today, so I have been breastfeeding for five years! Elliot will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall, and yes, he is still nursing! I also have to give him credit for sharing his boo-boos, we have been tandem nursing for almost two years with his little brother.

I am so grateful for LJ and these communities. I went from a "I'll breastfeed a year" person to a committed breastfeeder, a LLL leader, and now (hopefully, the test went well yesterday and I'll find out in October) an IBCLC. Our nursing story is one of Hypoplasia, donor milk, the SNS, and making it work despite the odds. It's in the memories of my journal if anyone wants to read it. Thank you all for being there for us over the past five years!
