I am mom to 6 beautiful children.
I nursed my first son for a year, only stopping because I became pregnant with son #2 whom I nursed for 4 months, but had to stop due to his digestive health.
I nursed my 3rd son for 2 years and my first daughter for nearly 3 years. When I found out I was pregnant with our second daughter (5th child) I was so excited to nurse another baby.
I prepared by getting tons of BF supplies. After the 3rd day at home, i realized my breasts felt no different, and my baby wasn't really getting anything.
I thought well maybe it will just take longer this time because I'm older. Nope, tried all the "tricks" and barely got an ounce per day.
I saw drs and tests and still no answers. I eventually accepted I wasn't going to get to nurse her
Now I have given birth to our 3rd daughter, our last child, on 2/23/13 and the same thing is happening again. I am devastated beyond words again. Nobody thinks its a big deal, but to me it is.
