Breastfeeding Basics & Breastfeeding: Beyond the Basics

In this two-session class, we will begin by discussing the basics of breastfeeding, including benefits to mom and baby, latch-on, the importance of skin-to-skin contact, frequency and length of feedings. We’ll also address common concerns, solutions and signs that your baby is getting enough to eat. The second session will be a more in-depth discussion of topics as your baby ages, including pumping, introducing the bottle while continuing successful breastfeeding, going to work, starting solids, weaning, and breastfeeding challenges any mom may encounter.
