Back in the olden days (did we just say that?) nursing was a skill passed on from mother to daughter. Today, there’s at least a decent chance your mom didn’t breastfeed, and even if she did, she probably doesn’t live next door or upstairs anymore. The truth is, breastfeeding is a skill, and it can be hard to master. Our best new-mama advice? Get some help, pronto! Call your doctor, your doula or the hospital or birthing center where you delivered and ask for the name and number of a trusted lactation consultant. Often times it only takes a slight tweak here or a tiny adjustment there to become a feeding phenom.
