My name is Alli, I am 30 years old, and a mother of two darling children. My breastfeeding story is one of relative success. I am unsure where I got the idea that I would ‘exclusively breastfeed’ when my husband and I learned we were expecting our first child three years ago. I know that my mother breastfed; myself for only several months, and my younger brother for about a year. But I have no pictures, no memories to validate this. Only the information I was told.
