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!!!

http://www.nbci.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage&Itemid=1

 

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" 

http://www.lalecheleague.org/

 

Breastfeeding Basics.  Wide variety of topics.

http://www.breastfeedingbasics.com/articles/waking-a-sleepy-baby

 

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.

http://www.mobimotherhood.org/MM/article-milkflow.aspx

 

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.

Silicone:  http://www.amazon.com/NUK-Silicone-Orthodontic-Nipples-Slow/dp/B002KAR786/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1362697567&sr=8-2&keywords=nuk+nipples

Latex:  http://www.amazon.com/NUK-Orthodontic-Latex-Nipples-Slow/dp/B0013NFZNU/ref=sr_1_1?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1362697621&sr=1-1&keywords=nuk+latex+nipples

Thrush.  Warning!  Gentian Violet makes for disturbing clown baby pictures.

A funny article to help ease your stress:

Good luck to everyone!
