You and your baby, both have a lot to benefit from breastfeeding. But as they say "no gain without pain". All new moms (especially first timers) would agree that breastfeeding is not an easy experience. It is hard work and a lot of trial and error - and you just don't know whether you are getting it right or not!
What could go wrong with breastfeeding?
Plenty we would say. If you are expecting, we are not trying to scare you, but trust us - being forewarned is forearmed. And the new moms who are already into it, you know what we are talking about! Issues like proper latching, low supply of breast milk (though that's a myth), and lactation issues are common concerns. Then, how to pump and how/when to wean, come next on an almost endless worry list...
Here's a typical scenario...
You are breastfeeding your baby for 25 minutes each from both the breasts and after another 20 minutes the baby is again hungry and crying for feed. You start thinking – your milk is not sufficient for your baby, he or she is not latching properly or is not able to suckle properly. Whatever, the reason, the baby is hungry… and you have no clue what is happening!
Hey! That does not mean you are less of a mom...
