Wife, Mummy, Nurse: What are your Breastfeeding goals? {Breastfeeding Blog Hop}

What are your Breastfeeding goals? {Breastfeeding Blog Hop}

When I was pregnant, I planned on nursing my daughter.  I had two goals: 1)Breastfeed exclusively for the first 6 months and 2)Continue breastfeeding until Charis was at least one year old.  I met both of those goals and confess I don't have any specific goals for this year.

It would be nice if Charis will be weaned before the end of this year, but unless something changes, I will not be forcing that issue.  Every time I nurse Charis, she clearly wants it.  On Sunday at church, she was getting fussier and fussier, then down went her hand into my shirt.  My only goal is to nurse her for as long as we both desire.  Our pediatrician is encouraging me to breastfeed until she's at least two years old.  I'm thankful my daughter's doctor is very much pro breastfeeding!!

Do you have any breastfeeding goals for this year?

  1. I want Charlie weaned by 2 years. I would let him keep going, but I have a mercury filling I want removed as soon as possible.

  2. My breastfeeding goal is to breastfeed my daughter for a full 2 years if possible.
