I have been breastfeeding our baby since the day she was born and now that I have past the drama and accepted that it could sometimes be tiring, painful and difficult, it's about time I blogged about it. Even if I've only been breastfeeding for 1 month 3 weeks and 4 days, I already feel very fulfilled - our daughter is getting stronger by the day because I nourish her.
It's great how young parents today are preferring practices such as breastfeeding, baby wearing and many other things that aren't necessarily modern when it comes to child rearing. There seems to be a going-back-to-basics revolution among young parents - especially among young moms.
