The Breastfeeding Chronicles - Intro.  -

I’m so pleased to hear you’ve got your groove! It’s very true that it’s not easy. I was a wreck the first few weeks, because it was so hard and painful. Thank goodness for osteopathy and lactation consultants! (and perseverance)

Ohhh eagerly awaiting the next update. I’m very keen to breastfeed so am about to start doing as much research and info gathering as I can! If we have a home birth I miss out on the nurses advising me on some of that stuff immediately post birth, so want to make sure I have good info and hopefully someone experienced to advise. My midwife is awesome apparently but she potentially goes away on holiday about 2 days after I’d be 2 weeks overdue (is that makes sense?)…so if I’m close to my EDD I’ll have her for 2 weeks post-natal care, if late I may get a day or two or not…I still get another midwife for care, but hope it will be her. Anyway – I’m rambling!

Thanks! I’m not by any means an expert, but hopefully by at least sharing my experiences it’ll help others – even if they know to not repeat my mistakes! Lol.

Hopefully you’ll get the midwife you want, it’s nice having that close relationship with a professional. Saying that, I’m now at a stage where if they’re a professional (regardless if I’ve not seen them before) I have no qualms asking detailed (prob often tmi) questions. Needs must an all.

Hope pregnancy is treating you well, Hun. X

So lovely that you got the support you needed quickly; the right breastfeeding support can make or break a breastfeeding relationship. Mine latched within the hour too; lovely, isn’t it. It’s interesting how the first day-ish is okay, and then the effect of the bad latch starts. I wonder if some people get their latch fine from the very beginning.

Breastfeeding positions are definitely important but you’ll find that you make them up too, as you and your little one grow in your breastfeeding relationship – it’s such fun.

O, the early weeks of forever breastfeeding! It does get quicker and less (most of the time, depending on whether you feed on demand or not as you go on). It definitely gets easier as you get used to its effects on daily life and find your way around it.

All the very best with breastfeeding, so glad it’s going better for you, and I look forward to reading more about your experience. 🙂
