Breastfeeding advice – how do you breast feed?

I mean it’s not like all girls are sat down at some time in their life and shown or told how to breastfeed, so how the heck are we supposed to know what to do?

I am just about to have my 2nd baby any day and have not had any advice or classes offered to me about breastfeeding, it is just assumed i know what to do! Not to get too personal but with my first child breastfeeding just didn;t work out for longer then 2 weeks (due to medical reasons) so now i’m ready to pop with my 2nd baby and want to nurse them but i can’t remember what the heck i did with my daughter !!!!!

So Google really is a wonderful thing and i found a video on You Tube which shows you what to do when you are just starting to breastfeed and gives you a little guidance as to what to expect etc.

I found it quite reassuring to watch and it was a help. Obviously it is only like 5 mins long and can’t go into great detail about every aspect of breastfeeding your baby but it’s a good start.
