Breastfeeding is a beautiful bonding time between you and your baby…unless you hate it.
Can I be brutally honest? At first, I hated breastfeeding. Hated it. It hurt, it was boring, and it kept me from the actual activity I desperately wanted to participate in: sleep.
Breastfeeding is hard. You have so much to learn in such a little time. Your mind and your body struggles to keep up. Sometimes you’ll feel overwhelmed by it and sometimes you’ll flat out want to quit.
Let me tell you that it DOES get better. Breastfeeding in the first 6 weeks was torture for me, but I went on to breastfeed for 13 months and loved it. If I can, I know you can too!
This post discusses the key tips for successful breastfeeding. I wrote it for the new moms that are anxious about, struggling with, and maybe even hating breastfeeding.
In the end, I hope these breastfeeding tips help you so you can enjoy this experience to its fullest.
