Re: Non-biased BF info

Do you have any friends that BF or a local LLL that you can visit or join their FB group.

For me the best advise/reassurance I got was from my BFF. She had two kids before I did and she choose to BF both. I was still scared and not all that confident but with a supportive DH and a good local LC I did okay.

The more kids I have had and more support groups I have found the better/more relaxed have become.

The best advise I received was if you think something isn't right seak help (in person) right away. Breast feeding may be uncomfortable at first as you get use to it, but it should not hurt/be painful/cause bleeding--if it does there is a problem. Don't let well meaning people tell you you should just tough it out.
