Congratulations, you have your beautiful baby. You made it through your pregnancy, labour and birth, now for the next challenge! For many women, although breastfeeding is a beautiful, natural and amazing process, is can come with its fair share of difficulties. For a lot of women, breast feeding is certainly not as easy as it looks. You may have initial attachment problems resulting in damaged nipples, which often deters women from persevering such is the severity of the pain and damage. You can do it, I speak from experience. You need a strong support network and a desire to continue if you are encountering difficulties. Not everyone can breastfeed, however many feeding problems can be overcome, and you can go on to enjoy a wonderful feeding relationship.
