11. Be Patient
The most important thing you can be when breastfeeding is patient. You and your baby may take a while to figure it all out. Your baby could have issues latching onto the breast, or you could have issues with milk production, but all of these things are perfectly normal; they are not an indication that you won’t be successful at breastfeeding. Be patient with yourself and your baby.
While breastfeeding is one of the most natural things we do as mothers, it does not always feel that way. Give yourself some grace to figure out how to best feed your newborn. Utilize the many resources available, seek professional guidance if needed and know that you will figure out how to give your baby exactly what they need.
