I would also say to focus on breastfeeding for the first few weeks.

My dd had a hard time latching, she didn't even latch for like 24 hours after birth. Then, it would take like 3 people to help me to get her latched. It was very hard, when I got home everytime I fed her, dh and I would have to try to get her latched correctly for like 20 minutes. I was very stressed out but I kept in close contact with the lactation consultant and went to see her after I went home. I just kept pushing though and I am so glad I did because close to 6 weeks it clicked and it was suddenly the easiest thing ever. I nursed her until she was almost 2 years old. I would recommend just sticking through the beginning for a while because in my experience it was so so hard but then so so easy and worth it!!
