You read the books, talked to other moms, took a class or attended a group. But you couldn’t really know what it would be like to breastfeed until you did. And how is it? For many mothers, breastfeeding can be a bit daunting, or even overwhelming, in the first few days. Feeding every 2 to 3 hours, and caring for a newborn’s needs around the clock, can be exhausting. Giving up breastfeeding and switching to formula might seem tempting. But is that really what you want to do? Join Marie for a show that meets you where you’re at, explaining what you can expect, and how to keep going until it gets easier. (Because it will!) Find out what questions to ask, what’s normal, and when to get professional help. Listen for what you need to know about eating, sleeping, jaundice, your milk supply, and more!
