Hello. I am expecting my first baby in March. My mother-in-law told me the other day that if I am planning to breastfeed I need to start preparing. She told me to rub my nipples with towels. My breasts are so sore right now, that rubbing them with towels sounds excrutiating! I also understand that if I do not start prepping, that I will regret it later!
I was wondering of other people's methods for preparing to breastfeed. I appretiate all help! Thank you!

That is not a very helpful tip... sorry she told you that. :-(
You can stop now!
It's a pretty natural experience that we don't really need to physically prep for. But it can really help a lot to have support & encouragement once baby arrives.
This website is full of helpful info and tips: Breastfeeding
Good luck! :-D
