Breastfeeding comes easily to some lucky mothers. For others, it can be a struggle. What nursing mothers need more than anything is support, and you’ll find a lot of it here. Babble offers solutions to common nursing problems – from cracked, sore nipples to low milk supply to blocked milk ducts to mastitis and beyond. You’ll hear from women who persevered and powered through, others who turned to the pump, and still others who threw up their hands and cried uncle (and lived to tell about it). You can hear from lactation consultants about the three most common breastfeeding mistakes new moms make, get tips for top breastfeeding products, contemplate the growing popularity of milk banks and pumping exclusively, and even watch videos that can help you conquer breastfeeding issues.
A tearful goodbye and reflecting on these past 12 months of our breastfeeding journey.
Moms share some of the most unusual things they've done while breast-feeding.

It's day after day that our breastfeeding journey gets more difficult. Now we have one more thing that has made it nearly impossible. I would love to start her on whole milk, but is it too early?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report that breastfeeding rates are increasing, but women aren't nursing for the recommended 12 months. Find out why they think this is the case.
Does your baby snuggle and nurse quietly? Or is nursing like trying to cuddle a sack full or curious, wiggly weasels?
After months of struggling during nursing sessions, we finally had a great session today!
