I remember when I first got pregnant, I really had no idea how breastfeeding was going to work for me. I did get some advice but nothing actually prepared me for what was ahead of me…..
My son was born via c-section after 20 plus hours of labor. The recovery was brutal as it was my first every surgery. Although breastfeeding seemed to go well those few days in the hospital, it got a little harder when we got home. I was exhausted, sleep-deprived, in so much pain from the surgery and sore from breastfeeding. My son was colicky the first 6 weeks so you can imagine how that went along with recovery.
