^technically yes, you've been feeding her for five months already. IMO, if she was my baby, I'd breastfeed her until she is a year old from her due date if possible for a total of 17-18 months. personally I'd go longer, but that's just me. I was lucky that breastfeeding came very easily to me, so I'm sure that influences my decision too. Sloane is more likely to have allergies and food sensitivities due to her early arrival...so keep that in mind.
having said that, you have to decide what you can handle and go from there. every feeding she gets is beneficial, and she's gotten a great start.
you're an awesome mommy, Wanda.
agree with cat about the wiping/cleaning issue.
. girls are very prone to uti's and they're awful.
