My name is Mookie and I'm going to be a grandmother again within a couple of weeks.
My DIL has said she would like to nurse this baby even though she was unsuccessful with her first child due to being young and not having any support from other mothers who nursed.
I nursed both of my children (many, many years ago) with the help of LLL. My daughter was able to nurse my other two grandchildren as well. But it's been 7 years since the youngest grandchild was nursed and I'm afraid I've forgotten much.
My question is how can I be supportive of my DIL with this new baby? I want her to see nursing as healthy, wholesome, natural and a blessing. I would welcome any new mother's advice on how they wished someone had supported them.
I hope it's ok that I'm here in the forum. I'm not a new mother nor am I a nursing mother but I do appreciate LLL's efforts to encourage nursing.
