Expectant mums over the world prepare themselves as much as they can before the baby arrives, but there are so many unknown challenges of breastfeeding. There’s so much information out there that it can be overwhelming, not to mention the realisation that there’s a whole new vocabulary to learn!
Breastfeeding is often described as an act that is completely natural, which is absolutely true. It’s just not always easy. Breastfeeding is a personal journey and what works for one parent and baby, may not work for another.
It may take a while to discover what works for you and your baby, and in this time, it may get messy, very fumbly and incredibly emotional. And the best breastfeeding techniques aren’t always obvious. But like most things in life, when you succeed in something that you felt was impossible, the rewards are greater than you imagined and your entire world changes for the better.
