Breastfeeding your new baby
Breastfeeding your new baby

As natural as breastfeeding is for our bodies and babies, it certainly doesn’t tend to feel natural in the beginning. We’re not born instinctively knowing how to breastfeed so having an abundance of knowledge, practice and support is crucial for long-term success.

We strongly suggest contacting a local lactation consultant, as even experienced mothers encounter roadblocks.

Breastfeeding your baby will most likely begin with a bumpy start, but it will soon start to feel like second nature once you get going.
