Wow - I am so impressed you fed for that long with a supply line. You are obviously a very determined mummy and it's lovely you got to enjoy all that time breastfeeding your daughter. Glad you updated your post. smile.gif

Thanks for all the lovely feedback, ladies! I've been meaning to update this thread for ages to let people know how I got on, so I'm glad I finally did it.

Nicely done! smile.gif I had terrible supply issues and I hate that people make it sound so easy and as if it's a management issue, not a physical one. It's not easy for many women and dammit, we deserve some credit for putting up with all that shit and doing it really, really tough. I hope you had the worlds biggest glass of wine to celebrate once you were done.

That is really fabulous work. 13 months is a fantastic effort when it's not the easiest path. You deserve the biggest kudos, so well done!

development is a journey, not a race

Well done on acheiving your milestone and persisting for so long, you should be very proud of yourself! I know how hard it was for you (we had similar problems). Don't worry about Astrid being on the smaller side, S ended up being ff from 4 months, eats like a horse and is still just over the 25% for weight. She must be meant to be petite. smile.gif
