This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart.
Many years ago, 24 to be precise, I had just given birth to baby #4. He was a delightful, easy baby, but life was stressful. I was doing my best to breastfeed, run a business, keep the household running, volunteer at school, and fulfill volunteer assignments at church, and it was just getting to be too much. I wasn’t getting enough sleep. I wasn’t getting any exercise. I was just getting run down, and I suffered repeated bouts of mastitis for it.
