Preparation for breastfeeding

How can I prepare my breasts for breastfeeding during pregnancy? Thank you.

You can't really do anything to prepare your breasts for feeding, just make sure that you are careful about personal hygiene and wear a good bra, with enough support. Successful feeding depends largely on the mother's attitude, if you are calm, realxed, eat healthily and drink plenty of liquids during feeding, then you should have no problems.
