Anyone know of any good breast feeding websites?

We are due with our son on Jan. 17th!! We are started to get really excited with it coming so close! BUT I plan on breast feeding this little guy until hopefully a year! I had the hardest time with breast feeding our Daughter I think partially because I thought that it was going to be really easy. For Moms that nurse, you know that it is def. a lot of work and very time consuming for Mom to nurse baby!! Now that I know what to expect the second time around I'd like to have a good support system! I'd like to find a website maybe with other Moms that is a good support system for nursing! If you know of any please pass them my way!! Thanks :) :)

  • GO JOIN LLL group NOW that is the best support you can get

    read the breast feeding chapters (last 3) on Natural Childbirth the Bradley way by McClutcheon (sp?)

    and you are wrong about bfding being difficult and time consuming that is only if you dont know what youre doing --after 6 weeks bfing is WAY WAY WAY easier for you and your baby and I"ve been there both sides
    last advice DO NOT ask you Dr or any hospital staff for advice UNLESS they are LLL members themselves cause they dont know and they are being paid to getthe most out of your insurance company which is not always whats best for you

  • Oh, and with LLL, there is a membership fee, but you DO NOT need to be a member to attend meetings, speak to a leader, or get help.

  • I agree with everything the other ladies said. Join the breastfeeding moms group here and find a breastfeeding support group in your area.
