Confession: How breast-feeding frustrated me and almost ruined my experience as a first-time mom
The truth is we all want to bond with our little bundle of joy from the moment we lay eyes on him or her, but the first few weeks of motherhood are very hard. Many of us breastfeeding moms struggle with painful latching, constant nursing, cracked nipples, fussy feeders, engorged breast and/or plugged ducts just to list a few.
We are worried out of our minds over every little thing we experience with our fragile babies, so when these breast challenges occur we find ourselves stressed out even more. We are left feeling exhausted and frustrated with the whole process, to the point where some mothers even consider giving up on breastfeeding because the pain has been far more than advertised.
