Second baby, breastfeeding was easy. No cracks, blood or mastitis. I trusted my instincts, stayed away from 'professionals' and did what baby wanted and just listened to my body. I know some people struggle, really I do, but I also think there is too much emphasis on 'routines', 'timed feeds', 'pumping' when we should just relax, follow bubs lead and trust our maternal instincts. I know so many other factors can come into play (such as going back to work etc), this is just my positive breastfeeding story. im still demand feeding my 10 month old, we are happy, but still people cant believe i dont give her formula! Best of luck.
