Breastmilk:Beyond the Basics
Now that you have the basics down, let’s talk all about breastfeeding, pumping, and maintaining supply past the 6 week mark. Things can get a little tricky as babies appetite grows, you get back into your work routine, or you’re fighting off a cold.
Feel free to join this session on your own or with your support person/partner. The more support the better.
In this class we’ll cover:
Growth spurts, cluster feeding, colds (medications), and teething
Troubleshooting supply issues
Hydration, nutrition, rest, frequency
Introducing a bottle and paced bottle feeding
Pumping (and hand expressing) and storing your milk
Types of pumps
Storage methods, locations and duration

Parents will also receive a one-time newsletter FILLED with resources to support you in your breastfeeding and/or pumping journey.
