Most parents have a feeling that breastfeeding might be hard, but don’t have any idea what to expect or how to set themselves up for success. If you’re thinking about breastfeeding but not sure if it’s right for you or you’re looking for ways to maximize your chances of successful feeding, this session is for you. Non-birthing partners are welcome (and encouraged!)
As with all of our consults, you can come with a list of questions or hand the reins to us! Here are some of the most common ways our families use their time:
How to understand and regulate your supply and avoid the stress and discomfort of under or over supply.
What does a proper latch look like? Spoiler alert: it takes practice for almost all moms and babies!
How to know if your baby is getting full feeds and why it’s so important.
When to start pumping, how to choose a breast pump, and helpful supplies to have on hand.
How to protect and soothe sore nipples, a rundown of all our favorite supplies, and how to distinguish “normal” nipple soreness from pain that indicates something is wrong.
