I'm 18w pregnant with our second child...yay!! But I get bouts of anxiety over whether or not I'll be able to successfully nurse this kiddo like I did with dd. With dd she latched perfectly, immediately. Never really had supply issues and it was a dream. I had no idea what COULD have gone wrong until I joined CafeMom and read all about how bad a latch can be, over active let down, all that fun stuff. Dd is 3yrs old and nursed up until about 7-8w ago. I'm so proud I made it so long! I had next to no support from friends or family with breastfeeding and lots of bad advice ran rampant. I just did what felt right. But I find myself getting very nervous or worried that things wont be so smooth sailing this time around and whether or not I'll be able to stick it out. The good thing is that I know how amazing it is, so if problems arise I can keep my eyes on the prize. However I only had one kid to focus on in the early weeks with dd and this time I'll have more to deal with. I guess I'm looking for advice or just to vent, I dont know. But I'm nervous!
