There have been so many exciting and fun aspects about being a mother. Breastfeeding has been one of my favorite parts. I just love the bond it gives me with my little one. He is a champion nurser as well; was from pretty much day one. My mother was part of the La Leche league raising us six kiddos and my sister also nursed her three. I had a lot of support and I feel like that is really how you are going to be successful with it, especially in the beginning. Also, having a supportive significant other. Mark has been so helpful with anything I needed, refilling my water when my arms are full, making sure the kitchen is fully stocked.
