I am an 'advocate' (so called) for breastfeeding..
I went for pre-natal classes that emphasized the importance of breastfeeding (exclusive for first 6 months etc etc) and am very gung-ho about it all..
I go by the believe that if one has faith that one can do it - there will be no problem. And the key is to load oneself with reliable information on BF and surely, BF will be a success.
Of course, I have had my share of oversupply, OALD, baby refusing the breast, mastitis, la la la... but I persevered...
But.. I have been told, some people just can't produce milk.
I always thought that it's just a mother's natural reaction when she has a baby, to produce milk for her baby.
So, am I being too idealistic?
If I am, I will tone down ...
