Not knowing anyone who breastfed their baby, or never having seen another woman breastfeed her baby, I had no frame of reference , no role models in the breastfeeding arena. There was 1 book on the library shelf and it was The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, written by a group of woman from La Leche League. I did not get this book until after my daughter was born. So, the breastfeeding class was the only place I received information on preparing for breastfeeding and what to expect when my baby was born. There were many days and nights that were filled with painful breastfeeding and major sleep deprivation. I learned a lot along the way. Humor was helpful. My baby getting bigger was helpful. It took us a while, but soon breastfeeding became enjoyable and easy. Through my experience I learned to work hard to not judge another mother for the choices she makes. We are all doing the best we can. I choose to focus on education and support.
