Change yes, ruin no. And I agree that most of the changes are because of pregnancy, though some are from breastfeeding IME anyway. And it took my breasts about 6 months after weaning my DD1 to get...

I too agree with giving her the choice and that both options are fair. You could easily have just decided to let her go and find a new childcare provider and you are already being very accommodating...

I struggle with mine too sometimes even though I don't doubt for a second I made the right decision. For me, at 35 weeks I was diagnosed with pre-e & one of my twins was having random decels, stayed...

Yeah, I'd recommend giving her something for her hands. A small blanket, toy, nursing necklace, your finger to hold, baby's ear, etc. I also tend to pin one arm as much as I can between their body...

Yeah, I'd plan on at least 3 pumping sessions, maybe you won't need that many, but I'd plan for it just in case. For me, I really need to pump 20-30 minutes as I have multiple, slow letdowns. It...

Having a partner that helps is huge for sure. My DH does 90% of the cooking and 100% on weeknights. He does most of the parenting "stuff" with DD1 (bedtime, baths, etc.) and I do most of the twins'...

With DD1, I breastfed her for 19 months and that is when I decided to wean her. I went back to work full time when she was 16 weeks old. I'd say the two biggest challenges were (1) getting enough...

I too was going to recommend trying bottles cold first, some kids don't care and it is easier, DD1 never cared. Otherwise, a pan of hot water or running it under a hot tap works just fine, but...
