Breastfeeding Education

BreastfeedingBreastfeeding’s benefits are numerous! It can be hard to continue breastfeeding after leaving the hospital. The Centers for Disease Control notes that mothers are more likely to keep breastfeeding with support in the first 4 weeks of baby’s life.

Many issues can arise when infants are sleepy and have trouble latching. Sore nipples, low milk supply and worries that your baby is not getting enough can be stressful.
