Let’s Talk Breastfeeding Basics!
✅ Breastfeeding Benefits – Did you know that breastfeeding benefits both you and your baby?
You’ve probably heard the saying “breastfeeding is best” and there’s a reason for that. It’s the most natural thing in the world; women are built for it. The benefits of breastfeeding are numerous for both of you but especially for your baby.
✅ How Does Breastfeeding Work? – What’s happening before Baby even arrives? Learn about how breastfeeding works, how your body is getting ready to nurse and what to expect from day one.
✅ Best Breastfeeding Positions – Here are the best breastfeeding positions for easy, breezy, effortless nursing and comfort. Yes, it can be easy, enjoyable, and an amazing experience for you and Baby! One thing to remember is that you and Baby will figure out what works best for the both of you. One or more of these breastfeeding positions may work and none of them may work – you could come up with your own way of nursing and it could be something totally different or a combo of what you’ll read about here.
✅ Breastfeeding and Pumping – These two go hand-in-hand for many moms. And even if you don’t plan to pump for bottle feeding, it’s a good idea to know what pumping breast milk is all about in case you need to relieve engorgement or if you decide to stop breastfeeding and just want to relieve pressure as you allow your breasts to adjust.
