    I'm scared of breast feeding but I have no idea why. Has anyone else felt like this?

    Are you scared of something in particular?

    I was nervous about doing it this time, but not scared, I guess it's normal especially if you haven't done it before. You need to relax though because stressing about it makes it harder and you put more stress on yourself. Just don't put too much pressure on yourself when the time
    Comes.

    I think I know what you mean. Before having kids the thought of it kinda grossed/freaked me out.

    Two kids later (both breastfed) I feel completely different about it!

    I was scared about doing it in public, would people see a lot of boob, would people complain. After 2 months I was like meh... It's just a part of life let me finish my meat pie and play on my phone while bub feeds.

    Is it worried about breastfeeding successfully / fear of failing?

    Is it the thought of baby on your breast?

    Fear of the possible pain?

    Or just general anxiety about the whole process?

    I wonder if you called and had a chat with aba support person about how your feeling maybe if that could help? Or even pop along to a bfing group of or classes maybe?

    Me too! I didn't go out to places other than friends or families houses for quite a while because of this. 14 months later I whip it out whenever, wherever! 😄

    While I was pregnant, I was a little scared about breast feeding. I have suffered from depression before, had a really nasty pregnancy (hyperemesis) and was concerned that I would get PND so wanted to have all potential problems addressed before baby arrived. I figured that breastfeeding could be a real issue if I wasn't prepared.

    A friend recommended I go to a class run by the Australian Breastfeeding Association. Best thing I ever did! It gave me so much more confidence. Right from day 1, I felt comfortable letting my bub guide himself, and knew what to expect over the following weeks. Best thing ever was getting a close up look at a mum feeding her baby. I had no idea that that was how it all worked! It blew me away.

    Every day, I say a silent thank you to the friend who recommended that class. I am so grateful.

    Doing a lot of reading on breastfeeding is a wonderful thing to do! It really does help. When i see anything to do with BFing I will read it! More I know the more confident I feel and because I read so much I am so confident and so proud of how well it is going for me. Information is power!

    I was exactly the same. It's hard when you don't know what it feels like. But the instant DS had his first bf it just all came together for me. It doesnt feel at all like you imagine.
