When both of my daughters were born they took to my breasts immediately. I was incredibly amazed by that and still am to this day. How did two tiny newborns instinctively know how to breastfeed straight from the womb? After reading many breastfeeding stories and talking to countless moms over the years I know I was one of the fortunate ones who had little problems with breastfeeding. I never had a problem nursing my daughters except for the occasional soreness at the beginning. That’s not the case with every mom, however. Only 6.7% of births take place in baby-friendly hospitals in the United States where moms can get critical breastfeeding support if they need it, according to Save the Children, causing many moms to give up if they don’t get necessary breastfeeding support and education.
