The right answer is the the one which feels right for you.
Every baby is different and so is every breastfeeding relationship - even if you breastfeed successfully one time it doesn't mean you always will be able to.
If anything you read or have been told doesn't feel right to you then it probably isn't. The most common mistake women make is not following their gut instinct. This can lead to feelings of guilt and stress which ultimately makes your transition to motherhood even harder.
The most common reason for mothers to feel stressed during the early weeks of breastfeeding babies is a worry about how much weight their baby is gaining. Many worry about whether or not they have low milk supply (often unnecessarily). Their baby is still very sleepy and often falls asleep while breastfeeding. Find out how to get as much milk as possible into your baby here so you don't have to use any supplementary feeds.
