I voted #2Did you get innaccurate breastfeeding advice? No..not really.
Was is your first, second, third, etc?
My First Baby
Was it a mental or physical?
I think it was physical
Did you have enough postpartum help/support?
Not at all..the nurse who helped me to breastfeed was no help and I wasnt' showed how to latch on properly..but I didn't know that...I though all was well.
What would you have done differently or you think that there was anything that you could have done differently?
I read every book I can possibly think of..but even then that's not enough..I had no help..but from my Hubby..which was 100% supportive..if it werent for him pushing me to keep going I may not still be breastfeeding now at almost 14 monhts..
My beast were so Sore, Cracked, and Bleeding the first two weeks..because my son was not lactching on right..
What I would have done that I didn't do was call a lactation Consultant....my mistake was calling the hospital nursery for advice..little did I know they know (crap) about breastfeeding.
Even after reading all the books in the library about breastfeeding and nursing one, two, etc, you can never be fully prepared. After everything...breastfeeding my son has been the best thing I can do for his littleprecious life.
And one day he'll thank me for it!
