I nursed all 5 of my kids from 1 to 2 1/2 years. I nursed all through my last pregnancy and tandem fed for a short time.
Reaching the goals set by my clients, no matter what that goal may be

I have 5 kids, who's ages range from 4 to 21. The 4 oldest are boys and my youngest is a girl. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 frogs. Busy house!
I love reading, crafting, sewing, and being outdoors.
I am an RN with certifications in EFM, ACLS and NRP
When I was pregnant with my first son I read everything I could get my hands on about what was happening with my body and my baby. I loved breastfeeding and was amazed at how our bodies continue to support our babies. I had some troubles about 6 months in and went to see a lactation consultant who inspired me to follow in her footsteps.
I love to be there at the huge life moments of birth and breastfeeding. I love to be the support that people need at their most vulnerable moments and help them see the beauty in the process.
Respond to your baby the way you feel comfortable. Don't worry about spoiling them or holding them too much
