I think it was in the book "So that's what they are there for" that has a story about a chimp or gorilla who had to be taught to nurse. It was really fascinating and I know I needed a ton of support.

You are so right, nursing is not easy for everyone. But you will always hear things that are worth it may never be easy. Bravo for going the extra 100 miles for your children I also remember that story. The zoo contacted LLL to have members come nurse their children in front of the the chimp so she could see what she was supposed to do. That just goes to show we learn how to mimic what we see and nursing is something that shouldn't be hidden or shameful
