Sometimes having a baby is overwhelming.
The added burden of trying to breastfeed is just too much for many the first time out.Once you get an idea what babies are about you can relax enough that it will come naturally. It will be work, but mothers have done it for tens of thousands of years.Good luck.

In brief: Absolutely:

Ask for a lactation consultant or nursing assistance.
Your pediatrician should also be a good resource. The individual education/problem solving should facilitate your breastfeeding initiation and sustaining.
