    I haven’t started nursing yet, but in our local area, breast-feeding classes are free. The best part is they give you a full color booklet and an online password to videos and all sorts of helpful stuff through seewhatyouread.com & InJoy birth & parenting. I’d recommend looking for a local program like this or trying to get a copy online.

    I haven’t started nursing yet. Our baby is due the beginning of June. But all the moms I know use Bebe au Lait covers. Their newest one looks fabulous! It would be great to use for our hot Colorado summers- very breathable and soft material.

    Look up a lactation specialist and ask for help. Also join a support group, like La Leche League, they are full of wonderful advice!

    It is hard and a lot of work, especially in the beginning, but it is so worth it! I’ve been breastfeeding for six months, and I absolutely love that time with my son (even now that there is a lot of scratching, pinching, face hitting, and hair pulling.) Oh, and ask help if you need it! Lactation consultants are great resources!

    Nursing tip: ask to speak to a lactation consultant at the hospital after you deliver. Almost all hospitals (in my area, anyway) have them, and you can meet with them as part of your stay. Breastfeeding can be very challenging, so it is important to get all the support available. The consultant can watch you feed your baby and offer tips. Also, a consultant can show you how to use your pump and make sure it fits you. The consultant I met with told me that I needed bigger breast shields than came with my pump, and I believe catching this right off the bat saved me some serious pain and hassle.

    It was really hard in the beginning to get caught up in “is this right?” Just try not to think so hard and relax, eventually it will work out.

    My tip for nursing is to definitely have a lot of patience, utilize your lactation consultants, get a boppy, and a great nursing cover.

    I have heard that you really want something large that will cover you when nursing so the baby cant grab and pull off of you.

    New at breastfeeding… but I’d encourage other moms to ask lots of questions in the hospital. Different nurses and lactation consultants all had different opinions.

    My advice is just don’t give up, I was so fortunate to have such a helpful midwife when I had my first. I would have easily given up, there was times when I wanted to.. I had to pump for the first 2 months, and give up dairy because my son had an allergy, but we pulled through and got him nursing.

    I’ve been told to take advantage of seeing a lactation consultant in the hospital as well as a breastfeeding class. Also to drink lots and lots of water!

    Newborns breastfeed ALL THE TIME for the first couple weeks, so don’t be surprised and it is necessary to build your milk supply!

    be patient when nursing! also dont be afraid to ask the nurses questions or ask for tips etc after giving giving birth. I had to stay in the hospital for 3 days after my daughter was born and I am so thankful for that because the nurses helped me to get my daughter to latch on and find the perfect nursing position

    Try to create a stress free zone where you can relax – get everything you might need before you nestle in (i.e., glass of water, book, play nice music, etc).

    Try nursing, but if it does not work, don’t be hard on your self. It is hard work.
