Do you want to give your baby the best? I sure did. The most important thing you can do to ensure you will have a great breastfeeding relationship with your child is to research everything you can about breastfeeding. When I had my son, I never researched enough and our nursing relationship ended before I reached my goal. With my daughter I did educate myself, and have enjoyed a very successful nursing relationship!
Here is a list of the best sites for breastfeeding information and resources. Please educate yourself so you too can experiance the joy and rewards of a long term breastfeeding relationship.
