DS was born in October 2010. I was 36 and delighted to finally have a baby of my own! My grandmother had had her menopause at age 37 (she had her last of 8 vaginal births and AF never returned). I'd always wanted to be a mum but waited (and waited) to meet Mr. Right who eventually showed up in 2005. In 2010 we decided the time was right so I started charting and we pretty much conceived straight away. I read a lot about the benefits of breastfeeding so I was determined to break with family tradition and exclusively BF DS. DS nursed on demand around the clock until he was a year old then I started changing things about.
