I've read many different things from different magazines and parenting books about what I should and shouldnt do to help prepare my breasts for breast feeding. I was wondering if any actual MOMS have some tips for me. (I'm 5 months)
It's not necessary to do anything physically to prepare your body for breastfeeding. (In the past, women were sometimes told to "toughen their nipples," but this isn't necessary or helpful.) You can trust your body to prepare itself for breastfeeding during your pregnancy. You may find that you leak a little milk toward the end of your pregnancy, or you may not. Either way is normal. A great article to read is How to Get Your Milk Supply Off to a Good Start Lots of tips for getting a good start!
