I am currently pregnant with my third child and my husband and I are over the moon excited for this baby girl to join our lives. We are busy getting our two older kids ready, preparing our house, and buying all of the gear that accompanies a baby after getting rid of it all a couple years ago (assuming we were done). Good times.
Of course, one of the major questions has been how will we feed this new little one who is coming more than 5.5 years after my last baby. Everything I once knew all about has changed dramatically. With my first two babies, they were exclusively breastfed until they were 6 months. Then we added in some solid foods. With my daughter, I stopped nursing when she was 1. With my son I continued breastfeeding until he was almost 3. They are only 18 months apart, so when I was done nursing him, I had been pregnant or nursing for five years straight. And believe me, I was DONE.
