Re: "What's your general advice for new moms who will be breastfeeding?" -trishie7
Breastfeeding isn’t always easy. You may hit some hurdles along the way—and that’s totally normal. Feeling frustrated, clueless or just plain uncomfortable at times isn’t unusual, but don’t give up or assume that you can’t do it. Once you start talking to other moms, you’ll see you’re not alone. Check out our breastfeeding boards, talk to your friends or other mommies in your area. One thing you’ll find about moms who are breastfeeding is that they usually like to share their experiences—from a trick they’ve discovered along the way that makes things easier to crazy home remedies they’ve tried that really didn’t work.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this is your decision and you shouldn’t let anyone pressure you to breastfeed or not to breastfeed, or how long or how often to do it. Feel confident in the choices you’ve made.
