I think for me the biggest challenge was not having enough support or education/knowledge.  I wish that I had had someone to talk to about breastfeeding when I was breastfeeding my son other than the WIC office.

having  everyone who thought they knew everything about nursing trying to tell me how I was doing it wrong. Especially those who had never nursed a day in their lives.

i agree with all....yeah it really helped having a bfeeding friend & a lady from wic would come to the house to help with breastfeeding. i had no support when i had my son so he had pumped milk & formula. so the support,having someone there thats done it to help if u are havin probs. really helped me
