While I was pregnant, I battled with if I was going to breast feed or use formula. Most people in my family had formula fed so that was what I was always used to. I never really knew anything about breast feeding.  I started hearing more and more about the benefits of breast milk and funny enough, I wrote a compare and contrast paper in my english class on the two! I was almost completely convinced that I wanted to breast feed. However, I still felt weird about it. I have always viewed breasts as a sexual thing. I couldn't picture feeding my son from them.

When Cayden was born, he was taken straight to the NICU. You can catch up on that here && here. When I was informed on what was going on with him, I immediately knew that breast feeding was what I wanted to do. I can't fix what is going on with him, but this is something that he needs that I am able to give. It makes me feel good to know that I am the only person that can provide all these benefits for my son.

What benefits you ask?
Breast milk provides an amazing amount of anti bodies and nutrients that an infant can't get out of formula. It significantly decreases their chance of getting infections and diseases common in babies. Breastfeeding also creates a closeness between mother and baby. It's a bond that a mother will never regret. Not only is it amazing for the baby, it also decreases the chance of some diseases for mommy too and helps shed some pounds gained from pregnancy.

When I first started, since Cayden was in the NICU and not eating, I pumped my milk and stored it. That was the easiest time so far with breastfeeding. It's complicated at first, and honestly it still is for me. But it's sooo beyond worth it!
