One of the things I learned as a first-time mum is that breastfeeding is best understood through experience. Sure, my Pedia was there to help me through the technical science-y stuff and at the same time, my mum was there to guide me through with golden nuggets of wisdom. But let’s be honest, everything we hear or read from those around us (or the Internet) don't always come out useful in all instances - there are times you’d have to tweak certain advice depending on the situation you’re in.
This, along with other things make breastfeeding difficult to understand. One of the hassles that come with breastfeeding is choosing whether to wear something stylish or comfortable - Deep inside, there’s a little voice telling you to be that cool/sexy mom, but at the same time there’s another voice that tells you that comfy is the way to go.
