Ok , so with my first baby I managed to br___tfeed for about three weeks , I got discouraged when the nurse told me at our checkup that he was slightly underweight so I just gave up :( Bold me I know .... it gets worse , with my daughter I only managed to br___tfeed during my hospital stay which was like three days ! I got really overwhelmed when I got home and realised I had two kids to look after ! Again , bold me : ( well now I am 21 weeks with no.3 , my kids are 4 and 2 , I really am determined to do it this time even though my family aren't the most supportive (we were all bottle fed babies ) I would appreciate any tips you ladies could give me :D

I'm not sure what help I can offer, other than to say that it GETS EASIER! I didn't believe those words for the first 2 months of b___stfeeding my dd. I was overwhelmed. But, like so many Moms on this forum said, after 3 months or so, it gets SO much easier.....and it did. I think the trick is just to keep at it and perservere. I can't imagine b___stfeeding with other children around, though! I found with my dd.....and was sat on our couch like every 2.5-3 hrs for like 45 min to 1 hour at a time! That was pretty much all I did all day was nurse. But, like I said.....it does get easier as time goes on, and eventually they start to get more efficient at nursing, so it takes less time. They also start to go longer between feeds, which helps too. Good luck. Perhaps you could b___stfeed during the day, but give a bottle at night or something like that. Then, you'd get the best of both worlds.
