My Facebook memories are full of status updates and pictures from five years ago, right before I was about to give birth to our first child. It’s funny looking back on the memories and reading my thoughts. I was counting down the weeks with no idea that she wouldn’t come on or before her due date, but waiting another entire week before she made her appearance. I remember some of these thoughts vividly, while others are more comical. One thing that I remember most was that I was simply “going to try to breastfeed”. I only had a goal of 6 weeks. Who would have ever imagined that I would have breastfed that tiny little baby for over four years? As I reflect on my time as a mother, I wanted to share with you some things that I wish I would have known then.
