Forgive Me La Leche, For I Have Sinned...

Forgive me La Leche, for I have sinned...

I gave both my babies pacifiers starting in the hospital (in all honesty, they didn't use them often or at all past 3 or 6 months old)

I drink caffeine. Everyday.

I let Jaron start solids at 4.5 months. When I found out that Aedyn was sneaking him bites of things like Oreos, Lucky Charms, and Loaded Mashed Potatoes.

I encourage moms to feel okay if the have to supplement, a little breastmilk is better than turning Mom off breastfeeding all together.

I encourage mom to remember that she is part of the "mutual" desire. If she's done, it's ok to gently encourage baby to be done. (That goes for night nursing or weaning altogether.)

If I'm tired or busy, I don't offer, but don't refuse. Not everyday or all the time, but on occasion. Sometimes I just need a break.

I wing it. Every baby is different. Even if I don't follow the "RULES" I know I'm doing what's best for me and my baby.

  1. Aww great post! We all do what's right for our own families and, your right, you can't always follow all the rules!

  2. I must confess that I laughed when you said Aedyn was feeding your younger soon Oreos, Loaded Mashed Potatoes, and Lucky Charms.  I agree with you that breastfeeding doesn't have to be all or nothing.  I like LLL, but I think they can take it too far by their comments on someone who chooses to give their baby formula.
