Breastfeeding Tips

  • Breastfeeding produces milk customized for each feeding to match each child’s nutritional and immunological needs. Even beyond the first year. 
  • Learning infant hunger cues helps mom feed babies before they cry. This makes for healthier, lower-stress mealtimes. 
  • Breastfeeding is healthy for mom’s too 
  • Nursing is usually comforting for babies and can help them settle
  • "Comfort Nursing" meets a baby's sucking needs
