Comment on Crushed: My Non-Latching, Sleepy Baby by Kemma.

I remember those first few days with a combination of clarity and post-delivery haze.

So many obstacles seemed to arise ready to trip us up and prematurely end our nursing journey yet so many wonderful people ready to help and support us and here we are at almost ten months, still going strong with not a drop of formula given!
