cuz i really hope so. the first week was painful last time and i had an oversupply, but it was a great relationship and my son did very well nursing. i'm jsut nervous that i won't be able to this time. i'm not sure why. i think i fear Karma. lol. i admit to not being sympathetic to those who choose not to nurse (i'm working on it) and i fear that something will happen this time to make me unable to nurse this baby. i just LOVED nursing sooooo much. and i see the great benefit in breastmilk and i have a hard time with those who don't view it my way! lol i know it's not nice of me, but it's how i feel.

so have you ever been able to nurse the first child no problem, but couldn't nurse your next child???

It's been easier this time than last. Although with that said I do both FF and BF and I did with my first.

With the first I was very freaked out by trying to nurse in public and have milk shooting everywhere etc. DD didn't like the right breast and would sometimes have a fit when I offered her that one. With this one I just "whip it out" and go to it.

I understand how you feel about EBF I use to think along those line. Now I say you as a momma have to do what works for you and your babe.
