When I found out I was pregnant the first time, I knew I wanted to do everything as naturally as possible. The more I read and learned, the more I trusted in my body to do what was right for my baby.
Breastfeeding was just a natural extension of that. I knew when I nursed my baby that I was doing the best, most natural thing I could do for him.
I know breastfeeding can be really hard at times. Especially in the beginning, but it's so worth it. When you look down at that milk-drunk face for the first time, your heart will melt. The best advice I can give is to stick with it. Seek out help from an LC (lactation consultant), go to mom's groups and trust that your body knows what it is doing. After all, you grew that amazing human being inside of you!
