Tips for Breastfeeding Success

  • Take a breastfeeding class through your local Hospital the last trimester of pregnancy. You may want to register early as these classes fill up early. You may also take a class with a Certified Lactation Educator in private practice. Ask your Obstetrician or Local hospital for a list of the professionals in your area.
     
  • Read a good Breastfeeding Book, like Kathleen Huggins " The Nursing Mother's Companion".  There are several good books on the market.

~ Signs Your Infant Is Getting Enough ~

  • When you deliver your infant, nurse as soon as possible. A minimum of 8 times in 24 hours for 15 minutes each breast or longer.
     
  • In the first few days after your delivery, your infant should wet at least 2-3 diapers and stool at least once.
     
  • When your mature milk comes in, days 3-5 postpartum you should be able to count 6 or more urines, and one or more stools. It is normal for a breastfed infant to stool with every feeding. 
  • Try to avoid bottles, nipples and pacifiers the first three weeks while you're getting breastfeeding established. 
     
  • It is normal for your infant to lose up to 10% of it's weight initially with a regain of birth weight by week two.
