  • none for the baby
    It may a bit painful at first for you but thats just when you're both adjusting
    I didn't enjoy smelling of breast milk all the time and leaking all the time
    but it's all for the baby
    and it's be most amazing wonderful thing you can do as a mommy

  • As a Mom of 2 who only breastfed for a total of like maybe 48 hours... I can think of none!!!! Other than if you don't know what you're doing you'll have a hungry and screaming baby

  • I hate leaking all the time. And engorgement. Engorgement hurts so bad.

  • Cons: engorgment, leaking, dry/cracked nipples during the first couple of weeks, maybe painful letdown, possible mastitis, over/under sensitive nipples, during growth spurts, your breasts are always theirs...lol

  • Not being able to go anywhere or do anything without them (baby) for a while - only a con if you like to go out a lot.

  • mastis( a bacterial infection in the ducts) jondas(a yellowing of the baby's eyes) low milk supply, and plugged ducts. I know it counds negative but it's a great experience with your little one. Mine was allergic to my breast milk. It's extremely rare but it happens
