July 18th

That was Drayke's due date last year. The breastfeeding coordinator for WIC left a voice mail this last week asking if I needed any help with breast feeding since my child was due any day now. She obviously had the incorrect year in her planner. I need to call her back to let her know I am not ignoring her and let her know what happened.

Breast feeding was one of the things I was really looking forward to doing for my son. Being in the NICU and pumping I did not have nearly the success as I wanted & had to stop after three months. But I did try. Every mother should give breast feeding a chance. It is the best thing you can do for your child after they are born.

I hope she did not have all of her clients down for the wrong year! And I am sorry that you had to get what I am sure was a painful reminder.
Three months with all the issues you dealt with, and pumping, is an achievement you should be proud of.

three months is amazing, and far better than what some people do!

The other posts said it - you are such an amazing Mom. I have no doubt that Drayke is incredibly proud as he watches over you.

Still thinking of you and your family.
