hello,im new to the group and so vary thankful for finding you vary STRONG and supportive women!im not breastfeeding yet this is my 4th pregnancy my other children were formula fed,but i want to breastfeed our new baby,i didnt the others due to having a problem with anyone comming close to my breast including husband,dont know why just always been that way.my 2 youngest children are special needs children their disabilty has no know cause or "cure" as of now.so this last year has been vary hard on me trying to figure out how this happened to my children alot has to do with blaming my self,maybe i didnt do this or that blah,blah or maybe i should have done that and so on.like breastfeeding and not giving formula.i guess i will go through this for the rest of my life intill there is a cause as to what happened to my perfectly normal developing babys intil they turned about 18 months and even then we lost so much time due to doctors not listening to what we were telling them about our children making all their milestones and then one day just losing them.sorry for such a long post,but i want to breastfeed this baby to give her the best start in life!anyway my question is how do you do it?how can you come home after just giving childbirth and not take any pain med's and on top of it all go through the pain of nursing?from what i understand you cant take pain meds and breastfeed or am i wrong?and from the reading i have read in this group you ladys are in alot of pain during the first couple weeks due to nursing.any advice that you ladys can offer would be so helpful to me,and i would love all the encouragement that i can get my lil one is due in march any thing that i should be doing now to help so that i have enough milk when baby is here?or to help get the boobs ready for the truma that they are going to go through?sorry i wasnt sure if i should put this in advice or discussions.god bless all....and thank you again!!!
