Stay hydrated the first few weeks are hard but it gets easier. The more you feed/pump the more milk you will have!

There is a breastfeeding support group on Facebook that a friend added me to and it is amazing. So informative and supportive. Message me for details

I have 4 kids and I’m still breastfeeding my 2 year old! Actually she is the only one that lasted this long. My first 2 I gave up because I didn’t really understand breastfeeding and my 3rd child I breastfed her for 10 months. The best thing that worked for me was to stop worrying about my milk supply and everything else. As long as your baby is feeding your body will naturally keep making milk. Also don’t give up. Keep trying if you fail ten times keep going. I wanted to give up a lot but I kept pushing because I know breast milk is the best milk.

I’m almost 4 weeks postpartum. The first three I pumped and he was supplemented with formula because my son spent his first week in the NICU and had a tongue tie which hindered successful breastfeeding but has finally been clipped. This past week we have worked on getting back to breast and so far so good. There have been a few rough nights but we’ve gotten through it, thankfully. To be honest it doesn’t feel like I thought it would, in terms of bonding. But I do know that sometimes bonding is not always immediate so I constantly remind myself that breast milk is the best for him and it has benefits for me as well(oxytocin, faster weight loss, peace of mind that his tummy is able to digest everything easily). But if you can do it, do it. If just for the experience, to see how you feel about it so you can make an educated decision.

If you’re up for reading there are some awesome books that can help: The Milk Memos is fun and informative, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding is loooong but covers everything. You can also look up a La Leche League chapter in your area or look into hiring a doula who has experience in breastfeeding education if you’d like to make sure to have some outside help.
