It's also about building that loving, trusting relationship between mother and child.
This is my situation too. Don't know how much of dd1's need I met because she had always had some formula, but she was nursed til she quit at 11mo. DD2, I was able to meet about half til she started eating table food then she only got donor milk at night...nursed til 19mo. Hoping dd3 will be easier to ebf....it seems to get easier with each one, though never effortless. Hugs!!!!
