When does breastfeeding become easier?

Q&A: Hi there, just wanted to know how long it takes for breastfeeding to feel ‘normal’? I have had so many issues including cracked and blistered nipples, thrush, vascospasm, red and inflamed nipples. I have fixed my bubs attachment. Bub will be 6 weeks on Monday and I just want it all to get better!!!

Dealing with low supply

Q&A: My son is 11 weeks old I’m breast feeding and in the last couple of days I haven’t been feeling my breasts fill up like normal, usually they noticeably fill up! He has been feeding more often since yesterday, I’m guessing that is just another growth spurt but it has been a couple of days that I have noticed them not filling up so I know it’s not due to him feeding more often. So what I’m wondering Is, is my milk supply getting low? Has this happened to anyone else?
