Thankful Thursday: 9 Months of Breastfeeding

19 Comments

This is officially the longest I’ve breastfed any of my children. With each of my previous four I’ve had to wean before I was really ready. With my first I made it four months before introducing a bottle undermined our efforts. With my second, only two months – then returning to work made it almost impossible to keep going. With my third I managed to go for a full eight months, then when I returned to college I introduced a bottle and she was weaned shortly after. I was dedicated to breastfeeding baby number four for at least a year, maybe the first two – but I became pregnant with the twins when she was only five months old and my body could not keep up.

But as of this past Sunday I’ve been breastfeeding the twins exclusively for nine full months!

“The number of times I’ve examined a substance on my person and wondered ‘Is this poop?’ is entirely too high.” – Amanda Coers

Motherhood is awesome. Raising little people and watching traces of you and the one you love most emerge in facial features and funny quirks is one of God’s most wonderful blessings. Sweet moments spent snuggling warm babies and feeling their soft skin against your cheek are precious. Sharing a laugh with an older child lights up my heart. Being a mom is the best.

It’s also pretty gross.

Yes, Breastfeeding Moms Can Give Blood

Can breastfeeding moms donate blood?

Absolutely.

I’m currently breastfeeding twins and today I happily trekked over to the United Blood Services Blood Mobile to donate.

I'm just happy to get to sit down without someone climbing all over me

When I was breastfeeding baby number four, I rolled up my sleeves and donated blood. Breastfeeding moms can donate blood without worry about their milk supply being affected. Before you roll up your sleeve to do your part, there are a few things to consider:
