Breastfeed the Baby

A mother nursing her baby—it's one of the most beautiful images nature
could create. It's also one of the simplest. Breastfeeding is so natural, in
fact, that we've been doing it for millions of years. (Indeed, without it, the

human race wouldn't have survived.)

But don't be fooled: For some women, the first few days or weeks of
breastfeeding are a challenge. "Breastfeeding is natural, but it's a practiced
skill, almost an art form," says Corky Harvey, R.N., M.S., a lactation
consultant and co-owner of The Pump Station, a breastfeeding-support
center in Santa Monica, Calif. "You could read a book about playing the flute
and learn a lot about the instrument," she explains, "but you won't really
learn how to play the flute until you actually do it." Breastfeeding is no

different. As with learning to play a musical instrument, success comes from
a combination of motivation, knowledge of essential skills, and practice.
