    The best piece of advice I received before breastfeeding was to rough up my breasts with wash clothes in the weeks leading up to delivery. I am about to deliver #3 in 2 weeks and need to start again!

    The best advice I received as a full time working/nursing mother was to pump and feed at the same time. I would nurse on one side and pump on the other every morning and evening to build my fridge stock for the next day while i was away at work. It was hard, but it was the best I could do for my daughter.

    Don’t watch the clock. Especially in the beginning because you are building up your milk supply.

    First baby, first month of breastfeeding is hard! I know some people have no issues, but I was not one of them. My nipples blistered, my boobies were swollen and sore, as if labor wasn’t grueling enough, right… But, DON’T GIVE UP! It gets so much better. Nothing can compare to that closeness and bonding time. You are giving your baby nature’s perfect nectar!
    Besides the advice not to give up, the best advice I have is to relax when nursing. Breathe deep and let your body relax to get a good let down.

    The best BFing advice I have gotten is to nurse when the baby is hungry not on a schedule. Babies are not born with a schedule but listen to what their bodies need, so we should oblige!

    Also nursing while laying down so we can both get some much needed rest. golden advice.

    I heard so many horror stories on how hard it was, but it turned out to be a breeze for us. The best advice would be to not stress out so much about it and just see how it works out for you before worrying about how hard it will be.

    Best piece of advice I got was to stick with it…if you can get through the first couple months, it’s a breeze afterwards. And it truly is! We had a tough time in the beginning due to latching issues and him being early, but it’s been almost a year now and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank God for not having to buy formula! :-)

    The best advice I was told is to not gauge what you are producing by what you get out of your pump. You’ll just go crazy with the numbers thinking your baby isn’t getting enough. No pump can get what a baby can get. Just boob them when they are hungry.

    From the Health nurse with my second child: Babies nurse not only for their breakfast, lunch and dinner. But as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day just like you and I do. So when it seems as though all you have been doing all day if feeding your little monkey just remember how often we spend eating and drinking throughout the day too. To have had this put in these exact words while nursing my first would have eased frustration.

    I am pregnant with my first child, so I get lots of advice – some of it unsolicited! My favorite breastfeeding advice that I have received is to not get discouraged if it is difficult to breastfeed at first. I’ve been told that it usually becomes easier. We’ll see how it goes when the little one actually gets here! I’m sure all these great products would really make it easier for me!

    The best advice we have received is difficult as all of it seems very important to pay attention to… but I have to say the most simple may be the best, which is to have a boomerang nursing pillow for baby! We still have a few months to test out our advise so until then I’ll be following closely for advice here!

    My biggest issue with breastfeeding my daughter was that I had an abundance of milk so even when she wasnt hungry I had to pump to get rid of my supply otherwise i leaked everywhere. I wish I would have had those lilypadz before. I am preparing to breastfeed with my second baby coming this fall, so I am going to need to stock up on those in advance. The disposables got expensive & they could only hold some much.. it was pretty embarrassing when I was out and needed a shirt change.
    Anhywho, thank you for the tips! And the products to look out for!!!

    The best advice I have every recieved is this:

    “…Don’t EVER measure your worth and value as a mother by your success with breastfeeding. Never judge yourself or other mothers according to their personal choices in regards to feeding their precious baby. Us moms need to stick together, support one another, and always encourage other moms. Everyone’s breastfeeding journey is different, with different needs, different beginnings and endings, and different highs and lows. Be a breastfeeding advocate, encourage new-moms-to-nursing, and help other moms when they need it, but never be a breastfeeding nazi! Simply enjoy your own journey, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it, and always do what is best for your baby and yourself!”

    That was actually the important highlights of different advice I’ve received. :-) But I’ve taken it to heart and love sharing it! I’m starting on breastfeeding my 6th… I’ve never had any of those wonderful products, but am ACHING to try them, and share them with my BFF first time mom! Her infant is a tiny preemie, and she is doing her best to pump, save milk, and bond with her little man as she prepares to return to work soon. She is a Vet and will be nursing/pumping when she has to leave her baby. I’ll be caring for him and as I nurse my own, I know how tough that will be for her. So, if I win this…it will be for her and I both. :-)

    Be prepared to feed A LOT in the beginning, and don’t compare your baby’s eating schedule to another’s.

    The best advice I was given was that just because breastfeeding is natural doesn’t mean it just comes naturally to everyone, it’s a learning process for both mom and baby and you will get there just give it time for everyone to adjust. It might be hard in the beginning but it is so worth it if you stick with it

    Stay relaxed and use pillows to support and lift your baby to you rather than crouching over to meet your baby. Also, the pillows do not need to be fancy breastfeeding ones, regular pillows will do!

    My favorite advice is make sure your baby’s mouth covers a large part of the underside of your nipple. More great advice is express a small amount of breast milk and rub it on your nipples after each feeding.

    The first 3 days of breastfeeding are the worst, you’ll want to give up, just remember that you’re doing this for your baby and you’ll get through it. Just don’t give up! Having mastitis 3 times in 2 months I had to remind myself, don’t give up, this is for your so. I’m glad I kept on it, I love the special bonding time I have with him :)

I’m sure we all had moments where we just wanted to quit, because of the pain, or baby wasn’t getting enough. 4 months later, I am so thankful I didn’t give up! I have a very healthy happy boy, who is exclusively breast fed. We couldn’t be happier. =)

    The best breastfeeding advice I recieved was to just be relaxed and comfortable when breastfeeding, and your baby will be relaxed too. I was given this when my son was in the NICU and was having trouble latching, partly because of his fast breathing. When I would be calm, relax and breath deeply, he was content. I was so happy to have him breastfeeding after a week of just pumping. Now I am expecting my second son!

    I am now a lactation consultant so of course I’ve heard a million “good tips” but I must say the thing I had to really wrap my mind around was to let my baby lead me. I was always so worried about weight gain, weight loss, eating too much, not enough…etc, but once I just let her lead I eased up and we both enjoyed it so much more :)

    I also shared about this giveaway on my blog! Thanks so much for making the issue of breastfeeding important :)

    The best advice I received was from my mom – she always encouraged me to keep going, no matter how hard it was, especially when my babies were in the NICU and I had to pump. Her constant encouragement and support, along with my husband’s love and support, helped me nurse my first to 13 months and my 2nd to 18 months. No obstacle was too big to keep me from that beautiful nursing relationship we had. It was one of the most precious times ever!

Breastfeeding my Brody is very important for me and giving up was not an option for me. . And with the encouragment from others and my husband I was able to get through the very hard fisrt week with Brody!! He is now 2 1/2 weeks and we are both doing so much better with the feedings :) It’s no longer a painful experience for me but one that I enjoy!!

    The best advice I receive was DON’T give up! It is hard and may take long periods of time, but stick to it because it does get easier. I am so glad I heard this because it was tough at first and my baby was nursing every 2-2 1/2 hours for almost an hour at a time, but I stuck with it because I knew it was what was best for the baby. I am so glad I did because it gets easier and easier each day!

    The best advice I’ve received so far (I think — haven’t actually started BFing yet, so this package would be AWESOME) is that it takes time to get started and not to worry if it doesn’t work perfectly at first!

    The best breast feeding advise I ever received, I ignored! It was; bring your pump to the hospital. I didn’t bring it for #2 and when my breasts became painfully engorged I found out that my insurance wouldn’t pay for me to use the hospital pump…….and hour of hand expressing under the hottest water I could stand finally offered some relief. Lesson learned! #3 is coming vis c-section in 12 days, and I WILL be bringing the pump!

    The best advice for me was to feed on demand especially in the beginning. I know people that have tried to feed on a schedule and not only was it frustrating but usually unsuccessful.

    The best nursing advice I received was “give it 6 weeks.” A good friend shared with me what a struggle it was for her to nurse, and made me promise to stick it out with a 6wk goal in mind at least. By then you’ll have figured it out and be a pro, or can evaluate what need improvement with a clearer mind than when you first start out. I was able to nurse my daughter 18 months successfully, and I’m glad I had that mini goal of 6 weeks to figure it out without doubting myself.

    My best advice was to stick it out, it can be tough but it is so worth it. And to use cabbage leaves, WOW! they really do work! I love breastfeeding, it is so incredibly rewarding!

    I had my first baby and was so nervous and really stressed to breastfeed. The best advice for first time moms is to relax. It’s not easy, but you won’t produce enough milk if your nervous or stressed.
