6. NFP and Ecological Breastfeeding

“”My third child had always been a difficult nurser.  I nursed him anytime he wanted.  At 16 months we rid him of his pacifier and nursing became a joy.  From personal experience of nursing both culturally and ecologically, the difference is night and day for both baby and me.  Ecological breastfeeding definitely made me feel closer to my baby.”

“First I want to thank you for the positive effect you’ve had on my mothering skills.  I nursed my first baby for 4 and 1/2 months and then quit because of the inconvenience.  I nursed my second baby for 22 months because it was so convenient.  The only thing that changed was my attitude and finding a supportive group of friends.”
