I am an army wife who is currently 32weeks preggo and My hubby has been deployed since last April and won't return until next April. (this is his third and final tour). I have always wanted to breastfeed and am excited to get started. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how life changes with a new baby when your a "single parent" (which i will be for about the first 5 months). Is there anything I should have on hand to make it easier? I don't have a lot of support out here due to a lot of friends leaving back to the mainland during the deployment and family is all in another state. My mom passed in feb 2011 and my MIL didnt breastfeed. Also the few friends I do have out here didn't breastfeed cause it was "too hard" so I'm kind of in uncharted territory here I am due in Late November and am planning an all natural birth at a hospital based birthing center (there are no free-standing ones on the island) and I just really want to do this right. I want to give my son and I the best possible start especially since he is our miracle baby. Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated.
