Education. If you don't know something or some piece of advice seems wrong LOOK IT UP. The womanly art of breastfeeding, So that's what they're for, LLLi, kellymom and this group are excellent resources. People may give you advice on what worked for them but it might not be the best practice.
If it feels wrong, hurts, whatever relatch. The baby will not get miffed. LO's 1st tooth is coming in and we played the latch relatch game for 2 days to figure that out.
Throw away your clocks. lol Just count diapers, nothing else.
Educate your self and relax! Most mom's are so stressed over timing feedings and counting diapers. I did not do either. Just feed on demand. If it hurts unlatch and try again or a different position (we did football hold for a month due to sore nipples). Take advice with a smile (from all the people who never bf or have no children lol) and use what you can and forget what you dont. ENJOY your baby, they grow fast.
Most drs get a 1 hr class on bfing and literally have no clue. Take their nutritional advice sparingly .
