Breastfeeding Basics

Breastfeeding can be one of the most emotionally challenging, yet rewarding experiences a mother ever has the privilege to accept. And along with the relationship that is built between mother and baby, your baby will be getting the very best, complete nutrition that he/she can get.

Learning some of the most important aspects of breastfeeding before your baby arrives can help you to overcome challenges that might come your way.

I have provided these basic steps to assist you in getting a handle on breastfeeding, and encourage you to review them often in preparation for your baby.

1. Prepare for Every Feeding

2. Position Yourself

3. Position Your Baby

4. Sucking

5. Timing

I want to do all I can to assist you in your breastfeeding success. Please feel free to Contact Me at any time for a phone or one-on-one counseling session.
