    It really is a shame. I never knew that bf would be challenging. I am so happy I talked to many BF mothers and did research before having my LO.

    If I were you, I'd argue to financial aspect of breastfeeding. A pump is way cheaper than formula. A visit to a LC is also way cheaper than formula. Emphasize that she'll save LOADS of money by breastfeeding.
