Deciding to Breastfeed with Lansinoh

My pregnancy was a complete surprise. I've never actually "tried" conceiving before, and the thought of it, was always pretty scary, because that's unknown ground to me. Once we found out I actually was pregnant though, things changed. We were scared, but we're both very happy about it. We can't wait to bring our sweet little girl, into this world.

Since I've never had a baby before, I instantly was terrified because, like I said, I knew nothing about babies. To be honest, as much as I love babies, I haven't even been around them very often.

So as soon as I found out, I instantly started reading EVERYTHING. Once we went to the doctor, and everything was confirmed - I instantly thought about choices I needed to make, such as breast feeding. I talked to Luke, and after a little consideration, we both decided that the best thing, was for me to breast feed.

There are countless reasons to breast feed, but the most important reason for us, is just the added health benefits. We want to give our little girl, the best start, and make sure she is getting the best nutrition possible.

As you can see, breast feeding is a great way to go.

Breast feeding will be completely new territory for me - However, I am working with Lansinoh, through out my whole journey. I have such an amazing support team behind me, to help me with everything I might be worried about, and I have all the products and tools, to get me through it, and get started.

This is just my first post with Lansinoh - I wanted to give you guys a little introduction, but you'll be seeing several more posts, featuring Lansinoh, and my journey, plus, you'll have a chance to win some own Lansinoh equipment, later down the line! So stay tuned.

  1. When I was pregnant with my first baby, I was young and quite nervous about breastfeeding. My biggest "fear" was what it would be like, feel like and so on. I'm so thankful I tried it out and it worked for us and I went on to nurse all three of my kiddos. I think EVERY mom should at LEAST attempt to breastfeed! The benefits are amazing.

  2. I think it's so important to give it a strong effort. It doesn't work for everyone, but I think the benefits are so strong that I would have felt awful if I hadn't at least tried.

  10. I definitely think 'to each his own!' I made the choice not to breastfeed, and although I know all the facts and still felt guilty, I also KNEW it wasn't for me.

  14. I think it's wonderful that you started to read and learn as much as possible when you learned you were pregnant. I've been told that just breast feeding for a few days has many advantages.

  15. I'm a HUGE breastfeeding advocate. I've nursed all 3 of my kids, and I'm still nursing the last one. I think it's the best thing you can do for your baby. It's also very relaxing once you get the hang of it. Just don't get discouraged because it can be frustrating. Keep at it for 2 weeks before giving up.

  27. Breastfeeding provides the baby with all the energy and nutrients that nature intends for the child to have and does it in a very efficient manner, as millions of years of evolution has shown.
