Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Bookmark and Share

When I was pregnant with our first son, I took a breastfeeding class. My husband came too. We took notes, and gave ourselves a big pat on the back for being so “prepared.” Yeah, right.
Sure enough, when that little baby boy was born, we were in for a bit of a shock. We quickly realized we had no idea what we were doing. (Rather, I should say, I had no idea what I was doing in the breastfeeding department). Fortunately, we stumbled along, got help from some lactation consultants, and even managed to enjoy the whole newborn experience enough to repeat the exercise a mere 18 months later.
Then of course I wrote “Mama Knows Breast.” Why? Because I figured that I probably wasn’t the only new mom out there who could have used a little more guidance than a two hour class. So I wrote the book I wanted to read…a “it’s-gonna-be-ok-take-a-deep-breathe-guide to the whole breastfeeding thing.”
And now, thanks to technology, we have some help via the internet. My blogging friends have spent some time writing their thoughts on pregnancy and breastfeeding as part of our monthly breastfeeding carnival. Here are the links:

Just have to say I LOVE this website! :) So glad I have stumbled upon it and will be visiting often. Wondering if you would mind answering a question for me. I have to work full time right now and I have been back to work for about 3 weeks, thankfully my little one stays with my Mom during the day, she gets all expressed breast milk, and there was no issue with nipple confusion, I first introduced a bottle at 3 weeks, well just the last few days her latch hasn’t been as great and it seems she is pulling her self off the breast alot! Do you think switching to the Adiri bottles would be beneficial? Also any other suggestions as to what I can do? Thank you!!!

Advancements in fertilty are at all time highs, as evidenced by the nadya suleman, and he ivf procedure is currently being hampered by the negative news of one irresponsible doctor. The practice of fertility treatment has been around for quite some time and it works favorably to bring new life.
