Breastfeeding

With our first DD, I only breastfeed a few days but if and/when we decide to have our next child I would really like to breastfeed exclusively at least the first 6 months-1yr. What are some good sites for reaseaching breastfeeding technics? With DD I was so worried in the hospital that she was not getting enough to eat and it really freaked me out so much so that I switched to formula. I've read quite a bit since and think I'm much more informed..

  • The best advice I can give is to find a good lactation consultant. I had several provided by the hospital for the first couple of weeks and there is nothing like having a professional right there with you to help you and the baby figure it out.

    Good Luck!
