What's natural?

We asked a group of parents what they wish they had been told about breastfeeding.

The voices repeatedly said the same thing: "I wish I had known I was normal."

Babies and mothers experience breastfeeding in a multitude of ways and almost always it's exactly what's supposed to be happening. For the times when it isn't, it's important to know where to go to get the right information and support.

Sometimes, success comes from having faith in your body and your ability and your baby.
