Latch is Everything
Forget the Clock
Beyond technical breastfeeding help, surround yourself with other nursing moms and older mother's whose children have grown. The former will support you emotionally and the latter can help physically with simple meal prep, errands, or simply holding or playing with the baby for a few minutes while you take a shower. Most people are glad to help out a new mom and for many, those newborn days are still fresh in their mind.
Don't forget that your spouse can help too, though don't raise your expectations too high. Most likely his feelings of being a new dad will kick in and he will have no trouble helping you out. Sometimes though fathers can have the 'baby blues' just as much as a mom can. Take it easy on him and remember that you are one team, even the often stressful newborn days can be a great source of joy for a man thrown off the deep end of fatherhood!
