Learning to breastfeed my son was difficult, but not because it hurt, but rather my breasts were so big - as big as my little guys head! I went to a lactation nurse who taught me how to position my son. It worked and I was able to nurse him until he was 15 months! It was the thing I treasured most: to be able to spend the time with him in a quiet place and bond over feeding. We would gaze into each others eyes, he would grasp my finger with his little hand and move it around while sucking. I was lucky to have a copious milk supply and no pain while nursing. It was a wonderful experience.
