Can you suggest any websites/links to info or videos about breastfeeding techniques?

I have had a hard time with consultants. I am very private with my body and dont like to be manhandled, and when I express my concerns I get told "Get used to it" "Deal" "Too bad", only once did a consultant really listen and she showed me one video and talked to me about the details but she ever grabbed me. But she moved so I cant use her anymore. I have been grabbed WITHOUT permission so many times I stopped going to sections.

I know not all lactation consultants are as brass as the ones I have talked to, but some are down right militant.

Can you help me out with any advice?

I would like to do this on my own.

**I am new at these whole mom thing, and except for 2 short videos I have never seen anything. I am really at a -no info place right now- I would like to know everything I can so I can give it a good try, and to know when I really do need help from someone else, or even that what is normal

Another book "That's What They're There For" has been recommended alot but I haven't read it (the name is close to that anyways). My LC was not THAT helpful and we don't have a local LLL. So the books (the previous one plus some of my birthing books and I read Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding) and the breastfeeding group here was helpful. I don't mean to sound "militant" but YOU have really got to make up your mind that bfing is the only way to go.

There's also a breastfeeding group on here, they helped me a lot when I was nursing my last baby.
