Now I need to be honest, I have never breast fed. I'm still pregnant with my first child. I thought I would have had my baby by now (my due date was a week ago today) and would have some personal experience before writing this. I am still waiting to meet my little bundle of joy, so I can't share any testimonials.
However, I have read a lot. I have talked to plenty of women. Here are the tips that I have heard over and over:
1. Be patient
2. Don't give up
There are plenty of tips that an experienced mother could give you. I will eventually have some to share as well. I don't want to speak for others though, so I will leave you with those two main tips. Those two tips are what I plan to hold onto during the difficult times, while my baby and I learn the ropes.
What are your tips? What advice do you have for a new mother? I'm always looking to learn!
If you're interested in following my breast feeding journey, you can find me on Twitter @DawnMarieMcG and I look forward to seeing you online!
