Hi, my name is Gina and I live in the Detroit Metro area. Although I am not currently breastfeeding, I did breastfeed my son for the first year of his life.
The best advice I ever received was from another breastfeeding Mom who said: “Be patient!” For my son, it did not come as naturally as it does for other babies.
I struggled to help him with it, and after lots of “trial and error”, we finally learned the best way for both of us. I had to keep reminding myself to “be patient”, but in the end it was worth it.
My son is now almost three and is happy and healthy.
