I had intended to write about the ups and downs of breastfeeding in the order that they happened, but today we had a huge breastfeeding victory and I couldn't wait to share.
This morning I couldn't find my stupid nipple shield and decided that I would try to get Bug to latch without it. And it worked! She breastfed all by herself... and I know she got plenty of milk because she had a little spit up after.
Its taken two weeks and five days, and I know this rollercoaster ride is far from over... but we did it!
