10 Tips for successful breastfeeding (Video)

If I were a new mom, I would want to find as much information as possible to assist with my breastfeeding endeavor. Fortunately enough for me I have plenty of women around who have breastfed — some multiple times, so thankfully I would always be surrounded by a wealth of information. But what about others? What about people who are exposed to limited resources and information? I found this video that lists 10 tips for being successful at breastfeeding, and it started out with patience, and included comfort, eating right and taking prenatal vitamins to having a great nursing bra and others. Below is the complete list, but aside from what is here, what else would you add?

  1. Have patience.
  2. Make sure you are in a comfortable position.
  3. Drink water to stay hydrated.
  4. Eat a balanced meal — you are what you eat! And what your baby eats, too!
  5. Take prenatal vitamins.
  6. Find nipple cream/gel.
  7. Have a great nursing bra.
  8. Have nursing pads handy to absorb breast milk
  9. Have a good breast pump
  10. Have storage containers/bags available to store breast milk
