Problems that arise during the first weeks of breastfeeding may impact how long a woman continues to nurse.
Researchers followed more than 2,000 first-time mothers from pregnancy through two months after birth.
They found 92% of them had at least one breastfeeding concern within the first three days.
Those with concerns were much more likely to stop nursing sooner than women with no issues.
The most common problem was difficulty getting a baby to latch and drink, followed by pain and milk quantity concerns.
