I BF DS until 6 months, using a nipple shield and giving formula top ups after most feeds. Undiagnosed thrush in the early days after his birth interfered with the proper establishment of BF and we just never really got into the swing of it after that.
I am now pregnant with number 2, and so determined to BF this baby. What if I can't? I felt like a complete failure last time. I hated how I felt (and still feel) about my inability to feed my baby.
I have joined the ABA and I am going to a half day course run by them in a few weeks.
What else can I do? I am starting to wobble. Any preparatory advice would be appreciated.
