Breastfeeding/Lactation Education

HUMAN MILK AND BREASTFEEDING CAN SUPPORT YOUR BABY

Your milk is both food and medicine for your child. No infant formula can compare. Your milk will protect your infant while he or she is in the hospital and then into the world.

Skin-to-skin contact (kangaroo care)
Skin-to-skin contact supports the emotional, psychological and physical well-being of the child and parent. It reinforces the bonding and attachment between baby and parents. We will teach you more about skin-to-skin contact.

Non-nutritive sucking
Babies find sucking to be soothing. That’s why you see so many babies with pacifiers.

To succeed at breastfeeding, you need a combination of patience, good technique and perseverance. But even the most prepared and determined moms can face hurdles in their infant feeding goals.
