The topic of breastfeeding gets a lot of people riled up and upset. It can make the mom who had no milk emotional over the fact that a mom who had a plentiful supply stopped nursing after four weeks. (While some think, What a waste!)
It can also make the mom who never tried regret she didn't. (Gasp!) And it's those moms, the moms who look back on the early days of motherhood and wish they did things differently, the moms who didn't nurse at all or who stopped early, those are the moms I wish would speak up more and help new moms so they don't feel that same regret. I hear a lot of women talk about how they wish they breastfed longer. Or didn't breastfeed at all and wish they tried. We can learn from those women if we let them speak.
So leave a comment or take their anonymous survey -- Do you wish you breastfed longer? If you did, what happened to make you stop? What do you wish you knew then that you do now?
