Finally got my baby to breastfeed after weeks of pumping!

Hi everyone I just had to share the news. I posted previously that I had given up on breastfeeding. My son is turning 6 weeks old tomorrow and he finally did it. He has been on the breast for 4 days (no bottles!). He is having a hard time but learning well. The first time he screamed when I atempted to breastfeed him 4 days ago. He was really upset but then gave in! I am so happy about not having to pump anymore it was so draining! Now my only problem is that I am engorged and have to get regulated all over again. Well thanks to everyone who had posted encouraging me not to give up. Its been hard but we finally did it!

That is great news!!! He will probably enjoy it more and more now that he is getting the hang of it! I'm having the opposite problem. Trying to wean my son and he does not want to give up the boob at all!!!
