The author says: This article would not have been written had I initially been successful with breastfeeding. Being a Midwife I thought I knew how to breastfeed. I had sore nipples for a month and could not solve the problem. I gave my baby supplementary feeds and lost my milk at 4 months. I relactated with the help of a breastfeeding organisation. Thereafter breastfeeding was a joy and a very rewarding experience for me. This motivated me to find out from all sources everything I could about breastfeeding. This is the result of my research, I want to share my knowledge with my nursing colleagues.
