I've just stumbled upon this site, I wish I knew about all this support when I tried breast
feeding with my first baby. I lasted four days, I convinced myself I couldn't do it, I didn't realize it was normal for him to feed every 2 hours. I now know he wasn't latched properly ( hence huge blood blisters on my nipples). I've got three sisters and none of them have breast fed their 6 children they advised me that babies are more content with formula, and that he was hungry I got really
tressed and gave in. I've been reading about breast feeding over the past few weeks and im kicking myself that I didn't try harder.
My little man has just turned 2 and im now 28 weeks pregnant, im determined to give it another go I love the thought of being able to provide naturally for her. Im looking forward to getting lots of tips and advice from you all.
Just a quick question in the first few days when your only providing colostrum do you still offer both breast at each feeding?
