We know, we know. After nine long months of carrying a wriggling, kicking, little person inside your body—nine long months of mood swings, hormonal changes, epic discomforts—the last thing you want to do is pull another all-nighter to work on ‘the latch’ or desperately squeeze milk out of your bosom.

While breast-feeding might seem like a daunting task at first, especially for a sleep-deprived zombified new mom like you, the advantages far outweigh the “work” involved. The hard part-- getting the baby to latch properly, increasing milk supply, dealing with cracked or sore nipples--usually lasts only for a couple of days. Once you get through this adjustment period, breast-feeding will become second nature to you and your baby.

The biggest obstacle for most new moms is shutting out the negative perception toward breast-feeding, so we’re here to replace those negative thoughts with encouraging and informative ones. Read on and learn some key points so you can breast-feed too!
