Yes, that is right!  Breastfeeding is a normal thing to do.  It is a natural thing to do.  However, it sometimes does not come naturally and many a new mother is shocked when she quickly realizes there is a learning curve to this whole breastfeeding thing.  Not that it takes months to become an expert.  However, you can plan on spending the first 2 weeks learning a lot of new info and putting it into practice.  By the time your baby is 6 weeks old, it should be fairly easy and quite convenient.  This is when the fun really kicks in.  You know what you are doing, you are confident and relaxed.

Here is a video with an experienced midwife, who breastfed her 5 babies.  She gives enough information on the benefits, the practical side of breastfeeding and also shares so great tips on how to succeed.
