What you need to know about breastfeeding, including challenges and additional support
Breastfeeding provides many benefits to you and your baby. Realize that it takes time to feel fully confident, as breastfeeding is more than an instinct - it is a learned art.
Be gentle on yourself, try to limit your activities, take good care of yourself, and ask for help and support. Remember that Beaumont lactation consultants are always here if you have any questions or concerns.
