Breastfeeding Basics at the mama 'hood illuminates parents-to-be with an anthropologically-based understanding of the breastfeeding relationship. From that foundation, we discuss how to fit breastfeeding into your life and establish the relationship with your baby that you desire.

Some of the points we will cover include:

  • What to expect the first 24 hours
  • Normal newborn feeding behaviors
  • How to establish a good latch
  • Baby-led latch
  • Positioning
  • How to tell if your baby is feeding well
  • Pumping
  • Ways to overcome common challenges

We will also incorporate information that is helpful for partners of breastfeeding parents to know and watch for. Join the community of happy 'hood mamas who start breastfeeding on the right foot and enjoy long-term success nourishing their babies with their own milk.

This class was written and developed by Amanda Ogden, RN, IBCLC and is taught by Sarah Choinard, RN
