It's been a long time since I have nursed a baby. I am not concerned bc I BF both of my boys for 18 and then 27 months successfully.....but, I feel like I should read a book or something. I have always read The Motherly Art of Breastfeeding. I was hoping that I could get some opinions on BF'ing books or info on the internet. I have no idea what kind of support I will have in the Birthing Center-- I need to ask about lactation consultants. My first baby had an awful latch (And I didn't know it) and one nipple bled for days and days-- and it really never stopped hurting for 18 months... The 2nd time around I didn't have many problems, but there was some pain initially.
I guess my questions are:
1. What BF book(s) did you love?
2. Did you experience pain initially and if so, what helped?
I'm excited to nurse this precious baby-- it's my most favorite part of mothering!!
