You've been dreaming about the day your baby is born, and holding him in your arms. You've probably also been dreaming about breastfeeding. At the very least you thought breastfeeding would come naturally. Breastfeeding is supposed to be natural, after all, right?
Well, unfortunately, what is natural doesn't always come natural to us. There are many hurdles that can interfere with breastfeeding. Birth interventions, separation after birth, premature delivery, or traumatic birth are just a few circumstances that would cause a baby not to latch at the breast. Sometimes, without any obvious reasons, baby will struggle to come onto the breast too. The BEST thing you can do is seek expert lactation support (which you can find here) and follow the advice in the video below!
