I am only 5 weeks. I have two other children which I bf. one 6weeks and other 6months. Horrible lactation consultants here. Is there anything I can do now to prep? I've been reading and buying nursing tops here and there. Last child was 5 years ago.

Feed your head. Hie the to a bookstore for some good reads. "So That's What They're For" and 
The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" are two.

Read this site.

Get to know kellymom.com.

Arm yourself with knowledge; it's the only thing that can be done till baby arrives.

This is just somthing that I did that I think made a big difference. I didn't have any visitors at the hospital besides my hubby. I stayed in bed for the whole stay topless with baby on my chest doing skin to skin. I didn't let my baby out of my sight for even a second (I don't trust those nurses in the nursery). It was exhausting but like I said I don't trust those nurses. lol. For now you can also try to find a La Leeche League in your area to take some classes. Good luck momma :)

I think everyone has seen me bf. lol. I don't mind. If they do then they don't come over or look lol. That's how I see it. I did a lot of skin to skin. I just bought a sling also. I don't trust the nurses either. My two other children slept in room with me. I will look into le leeche league. I'm in pa. I hope they have classes here. :). Thank you moma! I shooting for at the least a year of bf this time! Fx!

I guess the reason why I didn't have visitors is because this is my first baby & I was shy about it all. Now 7 months in I don't care who sees my boobs anymore. lol. It def helped to have my baby room in with me because I was so paranoid about the nurses sneeking her formula. That has happened to a few friends of mine & it screwed everything up.
