I’m just going to throw this out there. My first breastfeeding experience wasn’t magical. I was tired, in pain, drugged up, numb from the waist down and suddenly my baby was placed on my chest and I was told to nurse her. I put her straight on the breast and hoped for the best. Unfortunately, while she knew how to suck, she didn’t know how to latch (turns out there’s a knack to it) and two days later she was looking rather jaundiced and I was yelping in pain.
