:wave: Hello and welcome to Breast Buddies!

I'm Gem, mum to Ben, 3 and Daisy, 8.5 months. I was the same as you, none of my friends had breastfed and I had no-one to talk to about it, then I found this site and also found out about baby cafe and now I can say breastfeeding is definately the 'norm' to me and my family!

I'm sure you'll fit in well here! Look forward to getting to know you! :aww:

Welcome...

Don't worry so much about the sleeping thing. Most mothers report broken nights around the 9 month age even if their ff baby had slept through perfectly before. There is a huge developmental leap then so its only the calm before the storm Smile

I don't have any support around me either and this forum has been wonderful... :bighug: I've found loads more support here for my bf'ing woes than other past forums.

OMG I hear ya! I am soooooooo happy I've found this forum - I've been a member of a forum before that 'claimed' to be pro-choice when it came to feeding when they were clearly not pro BFing as they mobbed BFing Mum's if they dared to say how they felt - so I left them to it!

Dont listen to the sweeping generalisations made about BFing AND FFing. I know plenty of FFd babies who are having their Mum's up waaaaay more than my :boob: baby. I think its just yet another thing that FFers say to justify their choice as being better than BFing Evil or Very Mad Babies are all individuals regardless of their feeding - I'm sure your baby is sleeping as well as most babies of their age Very Happy :aww:
