Breastfeeding: Challenges of the First Days to Success

BreastfeedingBasics_Banner

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting my second live Pregnancy Magazine Google Hangout about breastfeeding basics that specifically focused on those first few important days after your baby is born. I was joined by fellow experts Corey Colwell-Lipson, LMFT, ATR-BC Margarita Marasigan, RN, CCE and Leslie Schilling, MA, RD, LDN.

We talked about what challenges can come up during those first few days when you’re waiting for you milk to come in, creating a good environment for breastfeeding, and tools to help make latching easier. We also discussed maintaining your milk supply, how to manage demanding feeding schedules and the importance of family support. See below to watch the full video:
