Child-rearing consultation and information exchange
Breastfeeding can cause many struggles, but there are various places where you can solve them.
Breastfeeding is always accompanied by struggles. It is natural for you to be worried and unsure of what to do. You don't have to be ashamed of this. Don't try to shoulder all of the problems yourself; get your husband, family, friends and people with experience in child-rearing to listen to you. It is also effective to rely on experts such as lactation consultants, midwives and healthcare nurses in your area.
Places where you can consult and exchange information about child-rearing
- Experienced mothers
You can surely find other mothers who have the same struggles and worries as you do.
You can talk, exchange information and share it with them while you let your children play.
- Bulletin boards on the Internet

You will gain not only specialist advice from nursery staff, but also advice from other mothers like you.
