So one of my biggest concerns is that I feel like I know NOTHING about breastfeeding. My older two kids are adopted, so I didn't have to worry about that with them This is my biggest concern about having a biological kid.
Nearly everyone who finds out I'm expecting now follows it up with "You're going to breastfeed right??" Then about half of them follow up that question by telling me how hard it is to do. And I'm just so terrified that I'll be a breastfeeding failure. If I ever display any insecurities about it (like sometimes I'll answer the question with "hopefully" instead of "yes") the person will usually spend the next few minutes telling me how important it is and how terrible it will be for my baby if I don't breastfeed her.
I'll also most likely be going back to work pretty soon after baby is born (not sure yet if 6 weeks or 3 months, hoping for 3 months but haven't discussed it with the boss yet). I'm stressed about pumping and if if it will be enough and if we will have established a good enough routine by then. SIL lent me her pump, which according to a friend is a very good one.
Anyways, just thought I would post about it. Anyone have any encouraging words or good resources to check out? Is it really as hard as it seems?
