Oh so for the circumcision one you put a clip of the procedure, but when it comes to breastfeeding, no visual example?? You monster!

In all seriousness this was a great presentation that shouldnt have to exist. But unfortunately we are in a society that teaches parents to distance from their children as soon as possible. I asked my mom how long I was breastfed for and she said it took forever to get on to formula or cow milk. Turns out 4 months is a long time to my mother lol. Her excuse was the end of maternity leave and "no time" after work to continue.

Then theres also my neice who gets constipated on a regular basis and I suspect it has something to do with her mother putting her on formula since birth. Dont know if its mentioned in the video but is there ever really a possibility that breastfeeding physically hurting the mothers breast? Her reason for putting my neice on formula was because it was painful.

Anyways this is getting weird talking about my family members breasts lol

Excellent!
I never understood the excuse of "convenience" that I've heard. Breast milk is the ultimate convenience food and always on tap. Nevermind trying to sanitize bottles, worrying about spoilage on days out of the house or lugging around more stuff than you need, mixing or warming up formula while you're 1/2 conscious at 3:00 am, recalls, panicky shopping because you ran out, etc. With breastfeeding, you're always prepared and a broken down car or other disaster isn't going starve your baby.
The pain thing is real, I experienced it and know from my friends, family & coaching that it is real. I'm sure it doesn't always happen, but I experienced cracked and bleeding nipples that hurt just to touch and were excruciating from the baby's REALLY STONG suckle. This was with coaching and assurance that the latch wat OK. But, it's almost like wearing new shoes. It's fine at first, builds up to an OMG level and just when your about to throw the towel....it heals suddenly and becomes completely pain-free. That is my personal experience, so it was great, then tolerable, then awful, then suddenly great again.....all in less than a month. I completely recommend sticking it out through the tough spot, the payoff is huge and the transformation from peak painful to totally painfree was amazingly fast, just days.
My 3rd child was born with a birth defect that required a feeding tube. Breast and bottle were both out of the question. (She's fine now, surgery fixed it) I extracted milk as long as I could keep up production but could not produce much for long without actually nursing. I totally mourned that. Not being able to nurse was a terrible loss after experiencing the pleasure and bond that it created before. If you don't know what you're missing, doesn't mean you're not missing out.

Erin thank you for your insight on this. Then I guess my neice's mother is just very selfish. She only tried ONCE and called it quits because as you already know, she makes the whole thing more about herself than my neice.

 

Was the pain and bleeding really that excruciating and was there even any sure fire way to keep the pain and injury at bay?

Yeah, Mysterion, it hurt a lot, but not right away and then it went away. I doubt it's always like that. I had a La Leche League coach and she gave me lanolin to apply and that helped and she said I was doing it right and recommended I keep going and that it would get better pretty quick. She was right. I don't know if there is any sure-fire way to avoid it. If I did, I would have tried it!
My sister had an issue nursing one of her kids immediately. It really really hurt. Luckily, she had prior experience and knew something was wrong. Turned out that the kid was "tongue-tied".
The medical term for the condition known as tongue-tie is “ankyloglossia”. It results when the frenulum (the band of tissue that connects the bottom of the tongue to the floor of the mouth) is too short and tight, causing the movement of the tongue to be restricted. <<<< I looked that up and copy/pasted. :)
Anyways, the doctor clipped the frenulum and the problem was solved.

I think any 1st timer is going to be a little shocked the first time they nurse. It's pretty intense. Maybe that's one way I was lucky to have my 1st child so young. I had "needs support" written all over me and so I never had to ask for help or advice - it was poured on by the bucketful whether I liked it or not. I was fortunate in many ways. The hospital I went to had recently redone their whole maternity ward. They didn't make you share a room with other moms, they had a bed for the dad to stay and sleep over in, they had nursing coaches and regular baby nurses who taught feeding and changing and swaddling, etc. They even had a free breakfast buffet in the ward for the dad's so that they didn't have to leave or go to the cafe in the morning. After I was released, a visiting nurse came over in a few days for a check-up and since the hospital always has a baby nurse 24/7, I could call the maternity ward any time of the night.
I was lucky to have a ton of information and support and encouragement. I think that's really key and every new mother needs it but not everyone gets it.
