Health Tip: What to Expect While Breastfeeding

Last Updated: August 15, 2019.

(HealthDay News) -- Breastfeeding is a unique experience for every mother. As you begin, your baby's actions will cue your body to make milk, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you are concerned about this process, talk to a doctor or lactation consultant.

Sore nipples and breast discomfort are common. Feeding your baby often relieves this discomfort.
