well at work I encouraged 2 moms to BF. One girl had her first child and would always call me with questions and was very eager to try and stay at it. She was great, the only down side was that she smoked but she did BF for around 6 months I think. She pumped at work too. The other mom had her third and never Breastfed, so she tried for a few months too and I tried to support her just by being a cheerleader for her-she had no support from her family.
And now I know a 17 year old who had a baby 2 weeks ago and is having a very hard time. Her mother really wants her to BF so I am taking her to a local lactation consultant place kind, of so as a last ditch effort she can keep trying. I hope it works out for her.
