"I remember being pregnant and saying things like, 'When they can ask for it, they're too old!' or, 'I'd never nurse a baby with teeth.' Then, I learned more about nursing from going to La Leche League meetings and taking childbirth classes. Once my first son was born, it didn't take me long to fall in love with nursing. . . . I wholeheartedly believe that nursing has shaped every aspect of my mothering. Being a mother has changed me from that naive woman to a much more understanding and open minded person."
