However, she could not latch, all my plans and preparation going out the window, I was devastated. I had put so much pressure on myself to get this done, convinced myself all the advice and positives from breastfeeding your child were now all negatives, that she would not be healthy, etc Hormones eh!
I was crying and sobbing when the nurse came back with a nipple shield, and I remember my sister used one when she was breastfeeding her children. Apparently, we have flat nipples, what the hell are flat nipples??? I did not even know to look out for that one.
