I have a friend who just had her second baby, and she is really trying hard to succeed at breastfeeding. She did not breastfeed her first. I've been trying to help her to the best of my ability, and I told her about the forum but it's safe to assume she is too busy to get on the computer right now!
I started this thread to ask for your newbie tips. Any "breastfeeding a newborn" advice that you think is really important, any cheers to keep her going, etc. I will forward the thread to her through email so she can read it when she gets the chance. What was the most valuable advice, info or mantra you had when you first started nursing?
