@tmm0603: You are correct in stating "the postpartum experience is overwhelming" and breastfeeding can add exponentially to that stress, BUT with support--especially that of a professional who can guide a new mother through the most difficult weeks, days, hours, minutes--mother and baby can benefit for life. I certainly don't approve of shaming, judging or bullying new mothers but I do believe in encouraging, supporting and assisting mothers to breastfeed as much and as long as they can.
