Breastfeeding and Your New Baby

March 3, 2014

There are many things that can make or break the transition into breastfeeding. Breastfeeding in the beginning is time consuming and that is good. It is good because it creates the opportunity for mom to rest and heal from birth. It is also a time to study your baby.  It is time to get to know each other.

With this in mind there are a few things you can plan.

Create nursing stations in your home.

While still pregnant, notice where you like to spend time in your home. Many new parents build a beautiful nursery but you do not have to stay there for every feeding.

Your baby does not care what the room looks like. Your baby expects to be close to mom and to have her milk available.

Your nursing station can include:

~water for you to drink

~snacks for you

~a cloth diaper for spit ups
