I breast fed my daughter for about 6 weeks but I had a hell of a time doing it. My supply never seemed to fully come in, she couldn't latch properly, she cried constantly and lost a lot of weight the first two weeks. I finally gave up when I was told that I had "bad nipples for breast feeding," they are small but yeah...that was kind of uncalled for and hurt my self esteem so I started giving my daughter formula.
This time around I'm 4 years older (I was young when I had my first), I'm a bit more knowledgable and I'm going to plan ahead more than I did the first time.
Any breast feeding mommas out there have any tips or words of wisdom for me? What are some things that you wish you'd known when you started off breast feeding? What are some breast feeding essentials that I will need?
