This week’s topic is milestones. Or, as I refer to them: boobie awards!
I previously posted about achieving my three month milestone and have my sights set on achieving six months next. While I know I’d like to nurse for at least a year, it feels good to focus on the shorter goals. I suppose that way if I don’t reach my long term breastfeeding goal, I won’t feel like I failed.
And when the going gets tough while nursing – those short term goals are what I have to hang on to.
I don’t know how many of you have heard of the boobie awards, but I saw a lot bout them on the BabyCenter boards. Mostly in signatures and mostly visual like this: (.Y.).
I never found an official definition, but this is what I gathered:
- Bronze = 3 months
- Silver = 6 months
- Gold = 12 months
- Diamond = 18 months
- Platinum = 24 months
I think it’s fair to say that these awards go to pumping mamas too!
What color are your boobies?
