Tonight I took a breastfeeding class and now I have way more questions than I did before taking it. I'm hoping to get advice & info on the do's/don'ts from any experienced moms.
I had no idea before tonight about so many things and I'm feeling nervous I won't do things right... I know a lot depends on the baby & both of us have to do our part equally, but I'm wondering how long it took before you got into a good rhythm with your babies? For those who went back to work after, how did you manage things at that point - when did you begin to use a pump/how often etc.? Did you get help from a lactation consultant or breastfeeding support group...would you recommend going that route? Is lanolin cream (or any other product) something I should buy ahead of time? Any other tips or techniques you've found to help?
If any other FTM's also have questions about breastfeeding please jump in too! (I don't think we've had a previous thread on this but if there's one out there already maybe it can be bumped up?)
