So I know breastfeeding is best for baby and I have promised my family and my husband (though HE is supportive of whatever I choose) that I'll at least try it. I want whats best for baby but I'm a little freaked out about it. I know that probably sounds stupid but I am terrified and weirded out about the whole idea of it. My friends and family have all breastfed and I know its a beautiful and wonderful experience of boding for mom and baby but I just cant get past these feelings of weirdness about it. Anyway, have any of you heard of nipple shields? Anyone used them? I'm kind of feeling like maybe they would make me feel more comfortable with it but I dont know. Hope I havent offended anyone on this, I think its beautiful thing I just am weirded about me doing it myself.
