Not sure if this is dumb or not but I'm just researching adoption, we are going to adopt but not sure if we are gonig dom or int yet. If we end up adopting domestically, I could still breastfeed, right? I would bf my bio kids if I would have had any and I really think it's the best thing.

Not a dumb question at all! Yes I breastfed my ds in the hospital within probably 2 hours of his birth - I've lost track of what time we started our first nursing session. He did not get any bottles until later. I was very honest and answered all questions from the agency and his birthmother, at the time of his birth AND on paperwork when we applied. They had no idea that it could be done but were very accepting and encouraging. It's a shaky time, though to do it before any consents are signed... but totally worth it to be your baby's first/only nourishment. Have you looked at asklenore.com ? Good Luck!

Yes Yes Yes!!! It is the best bonding tool when you adopt. My seven year old still has to go to sleep on my chest because she was so used to nursing, she loves to be near a warm body. I love that we are so close. It is a huge commitment but so worth all the work and two months of preparing before hand. Good Luck!!ME ~ 46 : DH ~ 48

Have you considered embryo adoption? If you are able to carry a baby to term you can adopt an embryo and then you can nurse your child because the birth was just like any other birth. link to embryoadoption.org below - it shows up like that!
