The best thing I did was went to a breastfeeding class. It was offered at my local WIC office for free. Look into them you will learn a ton!

It does hurt when the bb ***** on ur nipples but it'll go away in a few weeks of so but u can get the madela nipple cream n that helps a lot. They usually say to switch when bb feeds on one breast for about 15-20min. U can pump when the bb is asleep but get the electric breast pump cuz the manual ones *****.

With my 1st child I tried so hard to breast feed and didn't produce enough milk.  I plan on trying again.  I attended a meeting a LA Leche League this month.  A lot of information. I thought it was beneficial.   Plan on going returning even after the baby is born.  Look it up and find a meeting near you.  It can help you.  If you're on Facebook they have a page with lots of information daily.  Good luck :)
