Breastfeeding. As any mum knows, its an emotive subject. Its something I've wanted to blog about and share my story for some time because I get extremely cross when people that can't breastfeed get tarred with the same brush as those that say they can't but with the right support actually may have been able to.
When I was pregnant, I was adamant that I would breastfeed. I wanted to be the one that was feeding my baby. I wanted to experience breastfeeding and the closeness it would bring to us. My mother-in-law kept telling me to keep an open mind and that I shouldn't be disappointed if I couldn't breastfeed but my mind was made up. No bottles were purchased but plenty of breast pads were.
