Hang in there! Breastfeeding is worth it!! Yes, it's normal to feel all you do is nurse!! It's important that your baby feeds every 2 - 3 hours. If breastfeeding is new to you and your little one, remember that it takes practice to get things just right! Most first time moms need a little reassurance from time to time especially if a breastfeeding issue comes up, you will need a little advice.
Here are videos that have helped many of my other moms.
Many areas have lactation consultants that can come to your house and give you support. Also post-partum doulas are trained in breastfeeding, so they can be a big help too. To locate a lactation consultant or a postpartum doula look below for information.
