a year of breastfeeding

Ok so this is a little late!  But I just wanted to post that I have now been breastfeeding Malachi for a year.  We have had a lot of challenges but we are still breastfeeding despite it all.  We have carried on through failure to thrive (Malachi), expressing (me), hypotonia (Malachi), 2 weeks of being dairy free (me), reflux (Malachi), 2 weeks of dairy free formula feeding (Malachi), more expressing (me), nursing strikes (Malachi) and a pregnancy (me).

In other news, Malachi is now sitting by himself for increasing periods of time.  He had his first session in the sensory room at TOG on Friday and really enjoyed himself.
