Re: Before Baby gets here
I agree with all the great advice above!
If your hospital or birthing center has a LC on staff have them come in to visit you whether nursing is going well or not so well. I would also ask that the LC and the Pediatrician check baby for tongue tie when they do their examination(s).
The most important thing is to feed baby on demand, around the clock and take care of your self. Stay hydrated, rest when you can, and nurse baby. Surround yourself with people that nurse and/or support your decision to nurse.
Baby wearing was a great help to me too.
