Step-by-step guidance through the most challenging days, weeks and months of breastfeeding: the beginning.

Too many breastfeeding programs tell you how breastfeeding should be without telling you exactly what to do if things aren’t that way.  This program is completely different. We know that every mom and every baby is unique and therefore will have a unique breastfeeding experience. Rather than laying an unspoken layer of shame upon mothers when breastfeeding doesn’t follow “the normal path,” we instead simply manage the issues.

In this program, you will be guided step by step through:

  • How to get a comfortable latch and what to do if you can’t get a comfortable latch (including how to manage nipple and breast pain)
  • How to know baby is getting enough and what to do if baby isn’t getting enough (including how to strategically supplement without ruining breastfeeding).
  • How to involve your partner, even when he/she can’t breastfeed for you (and how to teach him/her to give a bottle!)
  • What to do in the early months of breastfeeding to prepare for your return to work
  • How to know what kind of milk supply you have (too much, too little, or just right) and what your milk supply means for how you breastfeed.
  • Strategies to incorporate breastfeeding into your everyday life as you gain the confidence to leave the house, breastfeeding in public, and establish a new routine
  • Taking good care of yourself in the midst of one of the hardest and most rewarding journeys you will ever experience: breastfeeding.
