When we first started out things were so bad and I was so emotional about everything that I developed a real compassion for people who chose to formula feed and are given a hard time about it. Now that we&#39;re at the place we are, though, I really have such a respect for nursing and all that it offers baby/mom and the relationship that I, too, want to encourage it without seeming too pushy.<br />2. Thanks for sending others this way, I appreciate it! :)<br />3. Your doctor said that?! That&#39;s actually a relief to hear. I&#39;m having a SUPER hard time. I even brought up the weight loss troubles at the last La Leche League meeting I was at, but I didn&#39;t really get any definitive answers. When I have my next doctor&#39;s appointment, I will definitely be discussing this. I&#39;m struggling with weight loss and it&#39;s making it really hard for me to even feel like myself. None of my clothes fit and I just MISS feeling good in a pair of jeans.

I never want to seem like I&#39;m pushing it on to others, but I just can&#39;t understand why someone wouldn&#39;t at least try it from the start! I&#39;m so impressed with everything you had to do to lead to a successful breastfeeding journey and I wish more people were like you! I had a little trouble in the beginning with Natalie not latching onto my left side, but after some tears, phone calls to la Leche League, and perseverance, we got over it and now nursing is seriously a breeze! 6-10 minutes, she&#39;s done - can nurse almost anywhere - now my little mover just won&#39;t stop moving and shaking while nursing which can make for some pretty funny acrobatics at times! Superb post!! I will be sending friends here to read this! Also: agreed about the not losing weight thing. My doctor told me this week that it&#39;s actually harder for breastfeeding women to lose weight, but assured me that once I stopped, it would be very easy to lose it the . It made me feel a little bit better...Laura http://www.blogger.com/profile/14999684457315081240noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-753327498602997080.post-80971011966343604262014-06-24T12:12:36.046-06:002014-06-24T12:12:36.046-06:00I went into it thinking that I would be one of the...I went into it thinking that I would be one of the women that would have a great experience with nursing as I had done so much reading and thought I did things that stacked the cards in my favor (Red Raspberry Leaf Tea, stocked up on Mother&#39;s Milk Tea and ingredients for lactation cookies (which are so yum!), and even encapsulated my placenta. Still, I had a rough start. So at least you&#39;re going in prepared for the worst...which I was not.<br /><br />I used the Lanisoh brand lanolin a bit, but honestly I really didn&#39;t find that it helped much...I heard all of these great things about it, but it just really didn&#39;t do a whole lot for me. At the end, I honestly started just using coconut oil.<br /><br />And I am HAPPY to be on the receiving ends of those texts, phone calls, etc...:) Sharlee Hatchhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12262625463535852522noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-753327498602997080.post-36513264905127282032014-06-24T12:05:57.316-06:002014-06-24T12:05:57.316-06:00Thanks.

The information about weight gain being the only factor is honestly something I wish I had known, it MIGHT have saved me a lot of unnecessary worry. I never stumbled across that information online in all of my research.

My family history is full of women who just can&#39;t freaking nurse for the life of them but I&#39;d never heard of the six week rule. I&#39;ll stick it out and try it . . . hopefully with success because it&#39;s what I&#39;d like to be able to do! <br /><br />What cream did you use? Lanolin? or something else to help with the pain? <br /><br />You&#39;ll be on the receiving end of a lot of texts those first few weeks, trust me :)rachel garberhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04247596624831889262noreply@blogger.com
