The first month of breastfeeding was tough. Very tough. I had cracked and bleeding nipples, nipple thrush and two gigantic rocks for boobies that hurt and leaked frequently. But I didn’t want to give up and stop feeding my babies.
I knew all the issues I was facing could be fixed with a little education. That’s all I needed. Information and support are powerful tools. I had bucket loads of milk so it seemed such a waste to just give up over things I knew could be changed or improved.
