I’m trying to psych myself now, with less than a month to go, so I came up with some points I want to remember after I give birth, so I could be encouraged to breastfeed. These are what I will think of when I see my breasts.
Believe that I will produce milk for my baby.
Rest when I could to avoid stress and tiredness, factors which could lower milk production.
Enjoy hanging out with my baby while she feeds.
Solicit help from other breastfeeding moms or moms who have successfully breastfed, even online.
Trust in God for He made breasts to nourish children naturally.
Foster a breastfeeding atmosphere with hubby and the older kids.
Exclusively breastfeed to avoid nipple confusion.
Eat well for baby and me.
Develop a positive attitude toward breastfeeding. Determination is vital! (sorry, wrong spelling of breastfeed, but I just had to add the word DETERMINATION)
August is Breastfeeding Month. But, I hope every month is, so that I’ll have constant breastfeeding reminders (if not for my breasts) to push through with this decision.
