World Breastfeeding Week

Hey, did you know that it's World Breastfeeding Week?

I've been breastfeeding my triplets for 10 1/2 months now, and I love it. It makes me feel ... well, I feel like my body isn't betraying me. And I love that my babies are bonded to me, even Abby who doesn't breastfeed, but gets my milk. She shows a definite preference for my milk over formula.

I never thought it would be possible to do this. I thought I'd pump for them while they were in the NICU and I thought maybe I'd struggle through a couple weeks at home, but I never really thought I'd make it through a whole year. And now I find myself wondering if I'll be ready to give this up when they turn a year old next month.

I have these three babies - these three that started out teeny, tiny, helpless babies, that have grown from as tiny as 2 1/2 pounds (Abby) and are now as big as 20 pounds (Sam) and I helped do that!

So, um, go me!
