"Get off your horse and drink your milk."

When we found out that Opeie was on his way we had many decisions to make about how we were going to approach certain situations. In some ways myself and Mrs M have very different parenting techniques and views on life but when it comes to the important things we agree on pretty much everything. Mrs M has very strong views on breast feeding which is great because I really didn't want my boy brought up on formula. It's been quite a tough journey which could have been ruined within the first few days by incompitant NHS staff, but thank fully we got through the difficult times with the help of a few people ( our brilliant midwife Amanda, and Telford BEST ) and i am so proud of the fact that she is still feeding our boy. Thank you to everyone who supported us, you'll never know how much you helped, by listening and offering a supportive ear!

He still doesn't sleep through the night and he can be quite demanding at times but Mrs M has the patience of a saint. She has given and is still giving the best start to our little angel and i am so thankful for that. I always wanted children even from a very young age  but i wanted to make sure it was with the right person and in a stable and happy relationship. I spent all these years obviously waiting for Mrs M as she is greatest mother i could ask for for my boys and she is so loved by us all.

Our little super hero will continue to grow big and strong thanks to breastfeeding and its all down to Mommy and of course a very supportive daddy.

I guess this post is just to say thank you from me, Opeie and Seth. We love and need you more than you will ever know. x

(If anyone ever needs any breastfeeding support, feel free to message us via here or our Facebook Page, and Mrs M will do her best to point you in the best direction she can.... it can feel like a never ending journey, can be stressful , but the health benefits for Moms and babies/toddlers is incredible..)
