    I did a breastfeeding class when I was pregnant with my 2nd because my first I had no idea what I was doing and my nipples got butchered, which took 2 weeks to heal. I didn't want to do that again.
    So 2nd baby she fed within an hour after birth, and I knew how to get on her on. and what a proper latch was etc. to keep my nipples intact. I had one little blister on one side, which I believe occurred when I was being stitched up. It was a bit hard to focus on both of those things at once. Milk came in on day 2.
    Third baby, no nipple damage at all, milk came in on day 2.

    Midwife went to latch ds but he was already rooting around trying to latch himself while he was on my chest just after being born. So we just moved him closer and he did it himself.

    Milk came in after about 48 hours of almost constant feeding during the night and alot during the day.

    My daughter didn't have a great latch, resulting in me getting badly cracked nipples, but she did latch on straight away. And I think my milk came in on day 2. So good luck!

    Dd1 was placed on my chest straight away, had a quick look at me and started rooting so I put my nipple to her mouth and she latched immediately, fed for 40 minutes. I can't remember what day my milk came in but it was a smooth transition.

    Thank you so much everyone!

    I truly did think it was just my midwife getting uppity about the breast is best. I really do want it to work, but I'm not going to beat myself up if its not happening.

    On a slightly unrelated note, for those who bf their second and subsequent children, how did your older children find it seeing bub feed?

    My DD will be 2.5 and is obsessed with my boobs, I hope she doesn't get jealous or make it difficult.

    You've all been such a great help, thank you!

    Dd1 was fine with it, she even started mimicking me by breastfeeding her dolls
