When a baby is born, so is a mother. Breastfeeding is an instinctive behavior for all moms and babies. A breastfeeding experience which is enjoyable and beneficial to both mother and baby largely depends on a relaxed mother who approaches the experience positively and confidently.

This may take time, patience and practice before you feel confident in your ability to breastfeed.
