For some women, breast feeding is a breeze, for others it is very hard. So many factors come into play. Is baby latching properly? Do I have the right angle? Am I comfortable? Do I feel self conscious? When will my milk come in? Why is this so hard? Breast feeding can be very frustrating. Practice does make prefect and baby will still love you even if it takes a while to get the hang of! If you are nearing the end of your tether, talk to your midwife or visit http://www.moh.govt.nz/breastfeeding for advice.

You will probably find that you appetite increases while breast feeding. Try keeping some healthy snacks such as nuts and seeds next to your breast feeding chair (and maybe the TV remote or magazine. I spent a lot of time staring into space while breast feeding, wishing I had remembered to move that magazine closer!).
Enjoy this magical experience.
