Re: Need some advise

I don't think you should stress about let her know that you are supportive of her ad her BF. I'm sure if she is educated and has done reasearch on BF, she knows the importance of the colostrum, nipple confusion, etc. I think some new moms are just overwhelmed with info right after baby is born and can't deal with "one more thing," kwim?? I work in a small ob dept and have to bite my tongue MANY times with new mamas who are wishy-washy about bf and say they're going to bottle feed in the hospital and then bf when they get home. I do my best to educate them and then have to let it go. As much as I want all mamas to BF, I try to respect their wishes and views. Good for you for being there for her!
