I (Alyssa) have had a guilty conscience for a long time. On this podcast, in my private practice, in my book, and when I speak at conferences, I share breastfeeding guidance that I myself did not take when nursing my babies. It's not that I am a hypocrite - it is that I just don't want other parents to go through the same struggles that I did. So why am I sharing this with you? I want you to know that, just like you, I did not do everything perfectly. I also want you to know that despite my many mistakes, breastfeeding still turned out well for me in the long run - and it can for you too.
