My approach to breastfeeding problems

I do believe that God created us as women to breastfeed our babies. It is an amazing, dynamic process that can be BEAUTIFUL! Breast milk is the absolute best milk for human babies. The nutrients are all in the correct proportions and breast milk can protect babies against illness and disease, as antibodies are present to help boost the baby’s immune system. There are hormones that flood through a mum’s body, which help with bonding and even getting your uterus back into shape after the baby is born. These same hormones go through to your baby and help him/her to feel contented and loved. In a nutshell Breast Is Best - when it works well. And for the lucky mums it does go well and lives up to all the great expectations that were promised.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT IS NOT GOING WELL?

What happens when your nipples are so sore that just the thought of your baby waking up for another feed makes you dissolve into floods of tears? What happens when your milk doesn’t fully come in and your baby is constantly crying and wanting to feed for hours on end.....
