Still breastfeeding

I've been breastfeeding my little girl for 1 year and almost 6 months by now. I'm not using my breast pump anymore because my little girl wants her milk to be straight from mommy. She doesn't like the refrigerated or frozen variety so I stopped with the pumping. Anyway, she already takes in solids and some milk too, so her hunger is not much of an issue. That's good for me, because I don't have to be paranoid about my breastmilk supply. Earlier this year, I was panicking when one of the typhoons caused a long electrical outage which made me wish that we had honda generator. That also happened with my son (breastfed for almost 2 years) when we went through Typhoon Milenyo years ago. Three days of electrical outage = discarded breastmilk.  It's more than enough to make a breastfeeding momma cry.

I've been blessed that I was able to breastfeed both my babies.  It really still is the best food for babies.  While milk formulas are getting better, it really is no comparison to what nature has provided.
