Breastfeeding Tips (pregnancy)
#1: Just DECIDE you are going to breastfeed.
#2: Don't accept bottles or pacifiers or "support packs" of formula.
#3: Don't worry about "roughing up" your nipples. Unless you're wanting to go into labor. Then go for it!
#4: Buy a couple of slings if you can afford it, or sew one if you can't.
#5: Join a La Leche League group.
#6: Set up a "nursery" in your own room, or forget it and let the baby cosleep.
#7: Give birth in as gentle a way as possible, maybe in a birthing center or at home!
