Breastfeeding Journey 3-6 Months [Update]

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series My Breastfeeding Journey

In this breastfeeding update, I’m writing about the breastfeeding experience during the age of three to six months old. I want to go into the bad parts, and then celebrate the good parts in regards to breastfeeding a baby. How has the adjustment been to a child in our lives for over six months now?

CJ’s 4-5 Month Journey [Milestones Update]

The 4-5 months old journey has been more challenging as she’s not quite a newborn anymore. She’s growing fast and becoming her own little, opinioned being. Full of wiggles and giggles, this optimistic child is one amazing kid. I’ll list her milestone achievements, talk about sleeping, feeding and personality developments.

Not to toot my own horn, but CJ is ahead of the curve in most development categories. She…
