Links for what La Leche League didn't tell me

My short-lived career as a part-time nursing mother to baby O is officially over. I nursed him for the last time several weeks ago, and I feel, surprisingly, at peace, probably for the first time. We made it ten months. Ideally I would have liked to have at least made it to a year, though considering how things went, we were lucky to make it out of the hospital. Though I'm feeling good now, ten months of low milk supply was not an easy thing to face as a mama, so I thought I'd gather together some of the articles and blog posts that I found encouraging during that time:

Milk: the breast and the bottle by Kasey Fleisher Hickey @ Simple Mom

Lactation Failure: It Happened to Me by Lisa Selin Davis @ Huffington Post

The Breastfeeding Conspiracy by Taffy Brodesser-Akner @ Babble

Tina Fey Opens Up About Breastfeeding by Female First

Opening a Closed Door: An Unexpected Relationship Between a New Mom and a Lactation Consultant by Full Belly Sisters

Happy World Breastfeeding Week. However you feed your baby, #Isupportyou.
