Choosing to breastfeed your baby is one of the smartest decisions you'll make, but it can be challenging. Here are 3 tips to help you be successful:
1. Check baby's latch. Pain is a sign that something isn't right. Check to make sure baby is latching correctly and then use an organic nipple balm to ease soreness.
2. Get nursing pads. Leaking is normal, but milk seeping through your shirt is embarrassing. Try bambooies nursing pads which have a milk-proof outer layer that prevents milk from leaking through your clothing.
The joy of breastfeeding more than makes up for any minor challenges you may experience.
