Do you have access to a breastfeeding class or a lactation consultant? Both were completely worth the money for me!

Be committed 100%. You can do this!

Make a list of "help" numbers(LLL leaders, IBCLCs, etc.)

No bottles! If you need piece of mind, buy an sns before baby (they can be used as finger feeders as well).

I also bought a bottle of motherlove for sanity's sake (never needed anything other than a good nursing pillow).

Lots of support! If things get rough, don't give in, find someone to talk to.

I EP'd 4.5 years with my first, I'm nursing this LO and wouldn't trade it for the world.

Re: help

I do have access to the LLL and also have lactation consultants (free of charge)
4'5years of EP!!! thats soo awesome.

i plan on not giving up. not that i gave up last time. i feel like i missed out on that bonding time with my son.

Yes a good nursing pillow is must this go around. Never had a good one.



thanks ladies

Re: help

You could get Medela Therashells, they have a backing that's supposed to help draw out inverted nipples. They look a little ridiculous under clothes but they're pretty cheap and if they work they work.

Re: help

My sister had inverted nipples and wore the shells and successfully breastfed my nephew and niece.
