Canadian singer Sarah Mclachlan has a breastfeeding warning for all first-time mums - get ready for five months of hell.

The WITNESS singer gave birth to her daughter INDIA ANN in 2002 and admits she had no idea that breastfeeding would be so painful.

She reveals, "It was way harder than labour because labour's only a day and there was an amazing result, but breastfeeding? My nipples were bleeding.

"It was really difficult and it really hurts for five weeks and they feed eight or nine times a day. Every time your toes curl in."
