10 Tips for New Breastfeeding Mothers


The first few weeks can be the toughest and rockiest part to developing your breastfeeding relationship with your baby.  I knew it’d be work, but didn’t realize justhow overwhelming it could be!Here are my 10 tips (in no particular order) so you can focus on you and baby: 1 – Arrange for someone else to do chores and cook. You need this time to focus on establishing nursing and your milk supply.  It’s work in the beginning because newborns are demanding.  It’s true! It’s not their fault though, those tiny bellies empty out fast.2 – Set up a nursing station.  Make it your space.  Your throne.  Have pillows, a foot stool, magazines, water, snacks, your phone – whatever makes you comfortable.  I primarily nursed in one location for a couple weeks, which was in the glider in the nursery.  This way I could be comfortable and focus on positioning.  Less distractions as well.  Now I can nurse anywhere (just about!), but I was nervous at first.  A designated spot helped ease my nerves.
