Re: Hoping breastfeeding goes better this time

I recommend getting baby on the boob as soon as he is born. The more you have baby latched on the better. Make sure to not go home till you feel confident in nursing. Try several different holds. Football hold is a great one to practice and get used to now. It is a very easy way to feed a little baby with large breasts. Read up on laid back nursing (other thread on it) and try that too.

I did not have nursing issues till my 4th baby. You just never know. I felt like a pro and struggled the first 3 months with this little one. He had a lazy latch that made nursing very hard if not near impossible.
