    Tip #4
    Be realistic about your breastfeeding expectations.

    Just like pregnancy and giving birth, breastfeeding is not always pleasant –it can get a little bit uncomfortable and a little bit messy in the beginning.   Understand that though breastfeeding is a natural thing, it takes some time for your body to get the hang of it and you need a lot of practice to get it right.  You and your child will have to learn to work with each other in the first couple of weeks.  Remember though that it gets easier with time and perseverance.  After a while, it even becomes easier than Formula feeding!

    Tip #5
    Picture yourself a success

    You will be your best ally and worst enemy when it comes to breastfeeding success.  Try to keep your apprehensions about not being capable of breastfeeding in check.  Very few women are truly unable to breastfeed and most probably you are not one of them!  Be optimistic and envision yourself giving your child one of the greatest gifts.
