To give breastfeeding a true try. It may not come as naturally as you might think! The first two weeks are the hardest, as you and your new nummie lover are just getting the hang of things.
Contact your local breastfeeding support group and look for online groups as well. In most cases, you are NOT alone in your struggles and you will be able to find tips and ideas to help.
Do not feel like a failure if you give a bottle. Any amount of breastmilk is WONDERFUL! If you find yourself needing to suppliment a bottle or two, a day, with formula....it IS OKAY! Just pump those formula feedings to keep your supply up and store the expressed breastmilk for another day.
