Painful Labor or Breastfeeding

Which Was Easier, Labor or Breastfeeding?

Some mamas were made to have babies and just pop them out. Others suffer rough deliveries and deal with C–sections, episiotomies and tearing.

Similar to labor, mothers who breastfeed have varying experiences. There are women who love nursing from the get–go. And, those like myself who had an uphill battle beginning with mastitis and other complications. While time eased me into it, initially it was agony.

What was less painful for you?
