Nobody Will Tell You This About Birth And Pregnancy
Prepare For The Breastfeeding Adventure
Breastfeeding is not easy. Some people have immediate success, while others need months to get it down successfully. It’s important to have a good support system of lactation consultants and realistic expectations. Joining a new mom group can make a huge difference too. And yes, it will hurt your first time. You will have contractions whenever you breastfeed, too. Breastfeeding triggers the release of the hormone oxytocin, which in turn causes the contractions that help your uterus shrink back to its pre-pregnancy size. These contractions are actually making your belly smaller, so it is not necessarily a bad thing.
