Winter. My daughter Bria was born in the winter. I knew breastfeeding was normal, and that I wanted to do it. Bria, however, KNEW we were going to breastfeed, and she communicated that clearly. Every time I felt like giving up, I could see Bria looking forward to latching on. Nursing was a big part of our bonding. La Leche League and my La Leche League Leader Aimee gave me what I needed to continue. Truly, Bria helped me with this, too.
