Well, it should be pretty easy right? I have an 18 month old biological daughter who is still nursing, so I have milk!
My dh and I are just finishing up the process to become foster parents. (babies only right now)We actually hope to adopt if it becomes available. For obvious reasons I plan to breastfeed, even if it turns out to be only a six month placement.
On one hand I had so few problems with my dd, but she was born at home, no drugs and all that. A foster baby will probably have had a less than ideal birth, shots, drugs, and been given a bottle. I have read a few books about breastfeeding an adopted baby but they are really just about the basics of breastfeeding. My LLL group just said "good luck!
Any helpfull advice or ideas? Thanks!
