I also just wanted to add that I didn’t exactly go at it half-heartedly, as I think may have been implied by some posters. I took classes, I read and reread the womanly art of breastfeeding, I took bradley classes that have an entire class devoted to breastfeeding, I had my baby naturally so that he would be alert and ready to nurse, I was beyond dedicated and I still cry about the fact that it didn’t work.
