I have been successfully been feeding my 2 month old boy. It was quite the struggle at the beginning, lots of obsticles. That's a very lenghy story, lol. But all that matters is that i am conclusively breastfeeding now, and i feel really good about it. with my first born, I wasnt as lucky, I didnt have the resources as i did this time. I tried for a short amount of time, 11 days to be exact, but i gave up. I truley regret doing so, If I knew then what I know now, I could have been successful. But anyways, I would love to hear any suggestions/tips or any concerns anyone has to offer.

*The biggest tip I can offer is just stick with it, if it is really important to you, keep going. It takes a long time for some, to get their milk started. It took me just over three or four weeks to be able fully breastfeed.*

One question I am wondering is ......does it hurt when they start to get teeth?

my son has just cut his first two teeth and no, it doesnt hurt. I was worried about that too, esp as he used to bite me all the time but the biting seems to have stopped now that the teeth are through :)



my tip is lansinoh cream... excellent for healing chapped nipples really quick, and never be afraid to ask for help! Once the latch is right its all good.
