It's great to talk about the difficulties - it definitely helps to know that others are going through the same problems, but I'd like to take a minute to go through the resources I compiled in my sleep-deprived anxiety-laden quest to 'get it right'. I know that they would be useful for new Mom's-to-be in a way that my breastfeeding classes never were. So here they are:
Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation. Amazing! First stop choice.
International Breastfeeding Centre. Second stop choice. HAS VIDEOS!!!
La Leche League. So many good articles. My go-to articles were the ones about "Clampdown Bite Reflex" and "The World of Latch-on: One Leader's Journey"
Breastfeeding Basics. Wide variety of topics.
An article about overactive letdown, which explains a problem that so many mothers have, whether they have oversupply or NOT!
An article about milk flow, the most critical issue surround a newborn's reaction to breastfeeding.
An article about artificial nipples. Hint: The orthodontic Nuks work best, because they fit on standard bottles yet still have a wide base, and they squish nicely in the shape of a woman's breast in the mouth.
Amazing support site for all you EPers out there:
Thrush. Warning! Gentian Violet makes for disturbing clown baby pictures.
A funny article to help ease your stress:
Good luck to everyone!
