There is so much information on breastfeeding, it is often hard to know where to turn. And it’s not surprising. Much of what goes on during breastfeeding is internal and invisible. What is often passed off as knowledge is little more than guesswork based on what we see or assume from the outside. Based on these inferred guesses, expectations of what is considered “normal” during breastfeeding becomes confused and often contradictory.
When it comes to you and your baby, you deserve better than educated guesses. What commonly happens during nursing is not necessarily what is supposed to happen. This section has everything you need to know to get started breastfeeding and understand the mechanics behind the moving parts. It will also help you clarify why you are having difficulty and what your options are.
Feel free to browse and learn as much as you can. There is a lot of information, but it is presented in the simplest way possible with straight forward, practical approach so you can feel empowered in your experience. Enjoy!
