Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Im glad everythings going good! I was worried about you and baby. Let me tell you this about breastfeeding. You have to want it to work and you have to be patient and persistent. When I had my first at 16 I half assed it and was only able to part time breast feed for 4 months. With my 2nd and 3rd I breast fed them 18 and 15 months. It hurts but your nipple will toughen up. It is the best decision for your baby. You can do it, just keep at it.

Congrats (:I'm 37 Weeks and 6 Days now, hopefully i get to meet my son soon! I've heard alot about breastfeeding and how much it hurts, i must admit.. i'm pretty scared. i know breastfeeding is the best thing you can do for your baby and yourself. a friend of mine who had her baby back in April said warth/hot cloths on your nipple might help them feel better. i cant say i've tried it but you can give it a shot if you'd like (:Hope you and Your Son are doing great.Xoxo Celss (:

Congratulations!You should meet with a lactation consultant to help you get the hang of breastfeeding. It can be difficult. My little girl won't latch at all so I'm pumping every two hours. It took her a full 24 hours to even drink from a bottle. I met with a lactation consultant in the hospital and she couldn't figure out why my baby girl won't latch properly. It's frustrating, but she just won't do it. So, get some help if you need it. Breastfeeding isn't always natural for mom or baby but it can work for most.
