Ok... I'll be 17 once I have my baby and i'm not to sure on breastfeeding. My sister and mom are pushing me to do it but i'vve herd it's not that esy and it leaves your breast really tender and sore which they already hurt like hell. I want to do whats best for my baby but I hear so many different things about breast feeding. So if you have done it can you give me some advice please.
Well I haven't done it yet, but I am all for it. A lot of people say it makes your boobs saggy and so lots of teen girls choose not to do it (i go to a school for pregnant and parenting girls and almost none of them breast feed and that is there number one reason) but it doesn't really. What makes your boobs saggy is pregnancy itself. Sometimes women find it hard to breastfeed but once them and baby get the hang of it, it's supposidly very simple and wonderful, plus it's so good for your baby. My mom breastfed me and she said it was the most amazing experiance she ever had. A lot of girls also give up quickly and or think that they don't supply enough milk, when that is totally false. It could seem like that you don't produce enough milk, but really baby just likes eating in small ammounts and frequently throughout the day. I say give it a shot and if it doesn't work then you don't have to do it. But it can't hurt (oh as for the hurting thing, sometimes I think baby doesn't latch on properly when you and him/her are learning how to do it, and it can hurt, but it shouldn't normally and usually doesn't)
