Those breastfeeding parents you've seen make it look so simple. They open a button and latch on a baby without missing a beat of conversation or a bite of food, as if breastfeeding were the most natural process on the planet. While the source may be natural, it does not always come readily.
There's a lot to learn whether your first time is a breeze, a struggle, or somewhere in the between. So the more you understand about technique (how to position baby), mechanics (how to tell if baby is getting enough milk), and logistics (when one meal is over and it's time for another), the more confident and empowered you will feel.
