Breastfeeding takes practice, and the early days can sometimes be a challenge. Each mom and baby team is unique, and it takes time to figure out what works best. The first few days — or weeks — are a time where you and your baby are learning about each other. Look at it like practice and soon enough, you’ll get comfortable and establish a rhythm. Lean on your friends and family who support your breastfeeding efforts, and reach out to community support programs like your local WIC office or the Lactation Support Hotline (855-550-6667). Don’t give up—you are learning together!
