The 10 Most Common Breastfeeding Mistakes


2. Stressing Out if Breastfeeding Isn’t Perfect

Remember, breastfeeding is a skill and you need to learn how to do it. Don’t be too hard on yourself if it isn’t easy for the first little while. After all, your baby will feel stressed if he or she picks up on your anxiety – babies are very intuitive, and if you’re on an emotional roller coaster, your baby could sense it. Having a baby and those first few months, especially if it’s your first child, is already emotional and stressful enough. And luckily, breastfeeding is something that is going to further your connection with your child, even if you have a few bumps in the road.

The best thing you can do is to push the stress away and try to stay calm and nurturing. Think of all of the things that are right – your perfect little baby that has changed your life in so many amazing ways. Keep those thoughts present when you start to go down the road to stressville.
