You will start sweating like you are in a steam sauna while breast feeding.

I WISH SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT:
1. FIRST 2 WEEKS ARE CRITICAL
2. LATCH NEEDS TO BE WATCHED CAREFULLY
3 MOTHER NEEDS LOADS OF FLUID INTAKE
4. CHICKPEA HELPS INCREASE BREAST MILK
5. IF BABY DOESN'T LATCH WELL ,ONE CAN USE PUMP TO KEEP UP THE SUPPLY
6. AND YES IT IS POSSIBLE TO RELACTATE
EVEN IF YOUR BABY IS GROWING NOW AND IS MORE THAN 2-3 MONTHS OLD

AND WHAT NOT...

I wish someone had told me about how to take care of my flat and inverted nipples so that I would have been mentally prepared. I wish Someone would have supported and encouraged me during the whole process... I wish I would have not stopped breastfeeding my darling so early ... I wish.. I wish.. I wish.. and I wish that no mom has to go through the tough times that I had... please ensure to get your nipples checked by your doc couple of days before delivery and get a proper supportive environment and not stop feeding your little one until she turns 2.

I had received right guidance on inverted nipples . Like 1) Pulling them out manually everyday
2) Taking hot water showers and pulling them out which helps in opening the pores and reduces pain as they are soft and easy to pull
3) Use the syringe technique to pull out inverted nipples (YouTube for the steps to follow )PS:- If it's pains do it under guidance.
