I watch Bringing Home Baby too. It just kills me to watch those tiny babies go straight to formula. They're not even given a chance to have BM. Getting started BF was incredibly difficult for me, so I understand that it would be easy to give up. But I know I couldn't deny such good nutrition for my baby and replace it with manufactured powder. I am so thankful that our pediatrician sent us to a LC as soon as we were out of the hospital. I wish that all moms knew more about BF so that we would know that things aren't always smooth and know what to expect/what is normal from the very beginning. Thanks for adding this as a sticky!
