Great Start Breastfeeding Class @ Happy Bambino -
Breastfeeding is nature’s way, but it is a learned art for mother and baby. Knowing what to expect and becoming familiar with the process of breastfeeding can reduce anxiety and allow breastfeeding to be a natural experience. Learn about the marvelous benefits of nursing your baby, latch and positioning, feeding cues, establishing your milk supply, and recognizing problems early. Get an overview of nursing bras, breast pumps, and milk storage.


Madison Birth Center
Great Start Breastfeeding Class @ MBC
- The natural art of breastfeeding is easier when women know what to expect. This class teaches mothers about breastfeeding benefits, how to know when the baby is latched on correctly, how to recognize infant feeding cues, breastfeeding positions and much more. Nursing bras, breast pumps and milk storage are also covered.
