The obligatory other. A poll with boxes allowing multiple answers would get a better sense of the truth, I think.
First baby -- no.
Second baby -- yes.
DD and I had a rough learning curve. The instinct to nurse came naturally. The tangle of emotions, anxiety, angles, how to hold her, latch, colic, dairy intolerance, etc., got in the way. We did establish a very successful nursing relationship that continues to this day, but there was a lot of projectile vomiting (her), crying (me), and screaming (both of us) along the way.
DS, despite a rough start and not being allowed to nurse for the first day and a half, latched on beautifully as soon as we got the go ahead, and I found it much easier this time around. I knew how to nurse a newborn this time, and it seems like he knew what he was doing, too. He was almost 2.5 pounds bigger than dd, as well, and I think that made a difference -- he had more head control, a bigger tummy to meet my oversupply issues, was solid and easier to hold. . . . DS as a newborn was like having an instant 3-month-old.
