My precious Babygirl India is 12 months old today! I always planned to BF for a year, but when I was pg, I had no idea what this would mean. I've faced more problems than you can imagine (recurrent thrush, damaged nipples, mastitis, plugs, an abscess, blisters, etc etc), but luckily my babe has never had a problem nursing. She has been such a patient partner to me. BFing is the single hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but I'd do it all over again in a minute.

Sweet and gentle hugs to my sucklemonkey xoxox. Your mama loves you!
