Breastfeeding Or Formula: The Truth About Feeding Your Brand New Baby

Posted in New Mommy Series
on September 6, 2016

The “New Mommy Series” is a series of blog posts that are jam packed full of useful information that you need to know when you have your baby.

The first in this series covers something all new mommies need to know about…breastfeeding.  This post covers several challenges that may arise during your baby’s first few days of life that may affect breastfeeding. Being prepared for these scenarios before your baby arrives, will hopefully create less anxiety and stress over your baby’s nutrition.

Many of the topics I cover in this series, are things that, as a Mother Baby Nurse, I would love to scream from the rooftops so all new “parents-to-be” could hear them.  I know that after most parents have gone through the delivery of a new baby,  they are not in the best state of mind to be hearing or learning all of these important things about their baby’s first few days of life.  It can be overwhelming.

I hope you find this first post about breastfeeding helpful.  Feel free to leave comments and questions as well, and I will do my best to respond and get answers for you!  Enjoy…
