In this class, parents will learn what to expect during the first days and weeks after birth, how to help get breastfeeding off to a good start, as well as what to do if things do not go as planned. We’ll cover the basic anatomy and physiology involved in breast milk production and breastfeeding and basic information about pumping breast milk. Class will discuss what preparation and supplies are helpful.

4133664398_a9987c3803_zWe’ll answer the critical questions parents have in the early days, including:

  • How much milk does your newborn actually need and how do you know if he is getting it?
  • How often should your baby nurse and for how long?
  • What is engorgement and what do you do if it happens?
  • How do you know your milk has “come in”? What do you do if you aren’t sure if it has?
  • Are the considerations (tips) different if you have a c-section birth? An early baby? A really large baby?
  • What can your partner do to help?
  • Should you or when should you begin pumping?
