Keep an open mind about all aspects of breastfeeding.

It's natural but doesn't always come naturally and some women need help.

Dont be afraid to ask for help, if it's available then use it.

Have realistic expectations.

Research as much as you can about all aspects of breastfeeding. Including issues you may have so you are prepared.

If all else fails with breastfeeding, there is another option instead of turning straight to formula.

That is pumping... Exclusivly pumping is becoming more and more the norm and I would love this to be an option in hospitals. You are still giving baby that precious liquid gold it's just not from the breast.

I hope this helps,

Good luck
