Thirteen years had passed since I had breastfed a baby when my baby girl arrived last February. I had read a couple of books, trying to brush up on my knowledge and my skills. But I felt like a brand spanking new mom who had never nursed an infant before those first couple of weeks of her life. I had to relearn EVERYTHING. Sadly for me breastfeeding was NOT like learning to ride a bicycle.
You apparently do forget.
In the past 11 months, I have learned new things that I didn't get the first time around. Here are a few things I wish I had known from the get-go with BOTH of my nurslings- when I had first breastfed my son over 14 years ago, and now with my daughter...
To my mamas who are now breastfeeding #2 or #3 (or 4 or 5), what had you wish you had known the first time around with nursing?
