Lack of information. Even when you've researched, there can be surprises.

The first 2 months is the hardest for me as far as engorgement, sore nipples and figuring everything out. Also, people that don't understand bf, trying to get past ignorant comments and such. I'm bfing my 3rd and last so I'm really trying to enjoy it:)

not listening to someone when they tell you after you were just bite that you should have stoped bfing once the baby got teeth.

The "option" to stop. I've seen so many women just give up because they gave themselves the out, not because they couldn't do it.

While I'm still getting the hang of NIP, I'm anticipating my biggest challenge being returning to work. I work 11hr shifts and will likely only be able to pump once and for not very long.

Low milk supply.
I have to take fenugreek 3 times a day, eat an obscene amount of food and pump after EVERY feeding.
Almost at 4 months...

Learning what information out there is correct and what is not.

Lack of confidence, it can be caused by all of the people around you or exacerbated by them.
