Help with Breastfeeding Issues

Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed our babies, but despite the fact that our bodies are designed for just that purpose, it simply does not come naturally to some of us.  For others, it can seem like we are doing something wrong when we read that breastfeeding shouldn’t be painful, yet it is for us.  The fact is, breastfeeding takes practice, things can go wrong, and sometimes you just need the support of an expert to get through those early weeks and unexpected hurdles.  These books are among the highest rated support books for breastfeeding and may be just what you need to turn breastfeeding into a successful, enjoyable time for both you and baby.
