Now that I'm so close to the end I find myself wondering what it is REALLY going to be like. I havent read any material or anything on breastfeeding yet.

For me, 10 days of extreme pain. I felt it was more severe than my natural birth. I also started to mentally beat myself up for having such a hard time. I saw the breastfeeding lactation consultant, the ped., and my midwife. I gave up at day 11, and pumped and dumped. This worked for me. I hope you can do better, but it is not for everyone. It did not make me feel bonded with my baby, but the opposite because of the pain. I felt like I was a failure. When I gave up those self imposed convictions I felt great just feeding my daughter and holding her with the bottle. Best of luck to you. I felt, that I did not know enough about the pain that many women, although not all, experience with breastfeeding. I just thought the baby sucked and had milk. Bleeding sores on my breasts were not for me. Some would say I gave up to soon, but for me I made a positive decision.
