The idea here is to have a list of how long you breastfed your baby. no matter how long or short you did.
Hopefully this will be an encouragement to all those ladies who only managed to breastfed for a short while, that they did the best they could, and that what they did was great. And an inspiration to those starting out and struggling as to how long you really can nurse if you set your mind to it.
So if you want to be added, please just post your name or username and your baby's name/babies' names/nicknames if preferred and how long you breastfed or have been breastfeeding for so far.
Congratulations to everyone who has given breastfeeding a try regardless how long they breastfed.
