[QUOTE=summastarlet;6499485]That breast feeding isn't as easy as what you imagine (well for me it wasnt). That it can hurt to start with and it can take both you and baby a little while to get the hang of it..but it is so worth it if you decide to persist!/QUOTE]
This!!! Breast feeding is hard! I thought it would come naturally....! Tell your friend to make a batch of lactation cookie dough & freeze it in readiness to bake once bubs is born, those cookies have been a godsend!
also, take the time out to just enjoy your baby. A bunch of factors inhibited me to do this-bubs is 6 weeks old now & I'm finally starting to enjoy him, but I feel like I missed the first 6 weeks cause I was stressing so much.
