Last year, I did not have many breastfeeding goals. The only thing I hoped was...
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.The last time I nursed Charis was July 17, 2012. It was bitter-sweet, but I'm glad it happened smoothly. This year, since I'm not breastfeeding, my goal is to not compare myself to other mothers. I have a tendency to look down on other moms, especially if they don't breastfeed exclusively for the first 6 months. Yes, there are more benefits to exclusive breastfeeding, but it's not my place to look at them that way. As long as they've made an informed decision, I'm fine with it. I also sometimes feel like I'm less than a mother when I see that someone else breastfed for 2 1/2 years or longer. Yes, their have been various trials in my journey breastfeeding Charis, but I thing I ultimately did what was best for her and me.
What are your goals breastfeeding this year?
