Did anyone plan on breast feeding no matter what and end up giving up for whatever reason? I am 37 weeks and hell bent on breast feeding but scared something is going to happen to prevent me from doing so. Any advice/experience with this is greatly appreciated!Answer Question

Ask for the lactation consultant at the hospital if needed they are willing to spend more time with you then the nurses if things are not going well for you.
http://www.llli.org/ La Leche League has plenty of local support groups.
With my youngest she spent 4 days in the NICU with feeding tube and oxygen. I didn't get to hold her until she was 1 day old and didn't get to try to BF until was close to 3 days old. I even had to let them give her formula. But I was still able to BF her for 14 months. I am only telling you this because just because everything doesn't go as planned or the way they tell you its supposed to happen doesn't mean that you won't still be able to breastfeeed.
If this would have been my first vs my third I don't know if I would have been as successful.
