Hey parents to be! Ya, You! It starts at birth!
Seriously! It starts right away!
Heather walks us through scenarios like “breast crawl” (yes, this is a real thing!), the natural feeding triggers a baby will exhibit, and tips for latching the baby properly.
- Getting started, do you know how big your babies tummy is the first few days?
- How to figure out your baby’s feeding time and signs the baby is getting enough milk?
Yes, we parents ALL worry if our babies are eating enough!
What about caring for yourself?
Self care, postpartum & sleep, and nipple cracking prevention are all covered. You may very well be surprised with some of the information! Common concerns like returning to work and still being able to breastfeed are discussed with some added tips for expressing milk and pumping. Because good news, YOU CAN return to work and your baby still continue drinking your milk!
Are you curious yet?!
Heather takes the worry and concern away from nursing and shows us that it’s an exciting and healthy method to feed and bond with your bundle of joy.
Sit back, relax and enjoy her detailed tips and tricks to breastfeeding your baby!
