My daughter turned 6 months old today, and with the exception of 5ml of formula in the hosp she's been exclusively BFed! We tried for awhile with nipple shields, battled 3 month long thrush, clogged ducts, etc. started EPing around 10 weeks, and sometimes I've HATED it, but we made it! I'm so proud of myself! (It's sad that I can't shout this from the rooftops, as I haven't come across very many supportive people IRL.)

Now comes the tricky part of trying to decide when to drop pumps, how to cycle out my freezer stash, when I'll be able to HUTH without running out of milk before her 1st bday, etc... but as always, I'll come here for advice and help!

Even though I'm not a very active poster here I read a ton and you all have been so so helpful! Thank you so much!

My sweet girl thanks you too!
