I'm due in July and plan on breast feeding again.  With our first son, I BF for about one month and had to switch to pumping. Pumping worked so much better that I began exclusively pumping, and did that for another 11 months while supplementing with formula.  While I'm not 100% sure why I had so much trouble getting our son to BF, I think it was because I was too stressed and wouldn't let down. He would constantly get fussy, as if he weren't getting any milk. By the time it occurred to me what the problem was, our son forgot how to latch on.


I don't want to pump exclusively again (that was hell) but I'm so nervous I'll fail at BF again. Any tips for relaxing?
