Just another voice of "you can do it"! Be flexible with yourself and your babies, and try not to let "less-than-ideal" feedings get you down...each nursing is a fresh start in those sometimes challenging early days! We had to pump following each nursing to get BM to supplement our daughter who was a bit smaller and the "exercise" of nursing was taking a toll on her gaining-wise...but we ALL made it (and flourished), and nursed the first year. Keep thinking...
Our goal was to make a year, and we did. (Despite surgery requiring mastitis twice, and cases resolved with meds once) Not to "discourage" anyone AT ALL from nursing, I am SOOO glad we did, but if they become "less interested" (as ours both did at around 11ish months...interestingly enough right in tandem with our year goal) PLEASE don't feel guilty, or that you have done "something wrong"!!! It is an AMAZING accomplishment to nurse two, for HOWEVER long you...
