    your midwife is a great font of knowledge. There was a very useful book called Best Feeding by Suzanne Arms, Chloe Fisher and Mary Renfrew. I used it when I was learning to breastfeed and use it when advising my clients in my role as midwife.

    hydrate yourself more often. before and after feeding your baby. cosleeping with your baby and feeding through a side-lying position will help you sleep longer.

    Indeed, Jessicalorek, that is very sound advice. Here in Australia though, the hospitals warn mothers off co sleeping. I think the best tip is to ensure you learn how to position and attach the baby well, so you ensure good supply, don't experience pain when breastfeeding and hang out with folk who actively support your wish to breastfeed. The other very important tip is to feed to the baby's need, and not, unless medically indicated, adhere to some schedule.
