hi!

I was enlightened about this group from a friend(tabi_cat1023). I bugged her like crazy last night. lol.

i am searching for support and suggestions on successful breastfeeding. I had a terrible time w/ my older boys. Neither had a good latch(very painful) and then mastitis and drop in supply. For their health and mine, I switched to formula. I am hoping that my soon-to-arrive new little man will be a better/easier eater.

Any ideas that you can give will be much appreciated. Thanks!

 Sounds like the bad latch and oversupply caused a plugged duct leading to mastitis. Kellymom has some great links on forceful letdown you could check out. Doing all your research on breastfeeding now will help you be successful and knowledgeable the next time around. Kellymom is a great site for info and  you could also pick up the book "so that's what they're for!" by Janet Tamaro. I am sure things will be better this time around for you. If you have any issues in the hospital ask to see a lactation consultant asap! Congrats!
