    I can't imagine parenting a toddler without breastfeeding. It fixes everything! Painkiller and distraction if they're hurt, comfort if they're upset, a quick snack if they're hungry/thirsty, calming...

    Yup, I know of plenty of people who've have a vaginal birth after two (or even more) c-secs. Google VBA2C birth stories and you'll find lots of examples :)

    They have their good points and bad points. It really depends on the child, their age, the way in which they're using it, how much they're using it, and what kind of programs they're using!
