A bit more intimate post, look the other way if you’re prudent. I’m proud to say that I’m celebrating 4 years of breastfeeding!

I could almost rewrite Johnny Cash’s song “I’ve been Everywhere” to “I’ve Fed Everywhere”. Planes, trains, cars, bus, ferry, subway, beach, bath, coffee shop, restaurants, pools, national parks, on the top of a cliff face, hotels, backpacking,... I’ve fed everywhere, man.
Tim fed up to his first birthday, took his first steps and was no longer interested in breastmilk.
I’ve never considered bottle feeding, other then a last resort. I’m too lazy to get up in the middle of the night to fix up bottles, drag big bags with bottles around, sterilising, having to ask stewards or waiters to heat up bottles then having to wait 10 minutes with a screaming baby, no thank you, I like my sanity.
Camping in a tent and bottle feeding? I don’t think so. Nope very lazy...
And the cost of it, the money I have “saved”, around $1500 for every year, would be enough for a great holiday! All the antibodies and extra nutrients I’ve given them (500 calories a day), the bonding. Yes, I highly recommend it.
