    One day at a time and cut yourself some slack. Two things I learnt from breastfeeding. Thank you for these tips

    My mom is still an active le leche league member and still gets phone calls from time to time! Not a mom yet, but I grew up going to these meetings all the time. You know what was crazy though? You mentioned drinking water during labor. I have NEVER heard anyone mention something so basic as taking in fluids during labor which is crazy! Great post! Definitely book marking this page!

    This is awesomely thorough! I breastfeed my 4 month old, and I went through it all. Mastitis, blisters, painful latch, you name it. My son was a premie so I pumped for most of the first month because his latch wasn’t the best. Anyways, this was a great blog!

      Thank you! I’m so sorry you had such a rough time, sometimes breastfeeding can be made out to be sunshine and rainbows but there are a lot of tears, blood, and hard work that goes into it that sometimes gets swept under the rug!

    A super helpful and informative post for all new mamas! Fully agree that a fed baby is always the goal, even if I personally preferred breastfeeding.

      3 months is amazing! All that is important is your baby has a happy momma who loves them. Sticking with it for 3 months with how hard it is shows your dedication!

    Excellent post! Great information on breastfeeding and setting up for success! I’m tandem nursing my 3yo and 5 month old, and I’ve used basically all these tips!
