Re: anyone supplement a little and still extended BF?
so nice to hear I am a photographer and in 2014 will need to be away for 8-10 hours on saturdays at weddings, not every Sat but maybe 1 or 2 month? I did not have to be away with my last son and we waited WAY too long to offer a bottle and never took it and we co slept so he was a nursing fiend! I can't lie - it caused some serious stress between me and dh and I promised if we had any other children i would be sure to offer a bottle.... well 6 1/2 years later here we are and it is on my mind as I would so love to nurse this one as long as my last this was so good for me to hear

It's also about building that loving, trusting relationship between mother and child.
