Breast Feeding Education - Before becoming a mother, I had very little interaction with breastfeeding women. Like many of my generation, I was not breastfed as a child. I was once one of many who thought breastfeeding in public was gross. As a Peace Corps volunteer, I spent two years in Cameroon, West Africa where breastfeeding was the norm. Breastfeeding women were everywhere I went and soon it seemed completely normal and natural for me to see a woman feeding her child anywhere, anytime.
Breast Feeding Pumping - When I had my first son I hadn't planned to go back to work. I suddenly had to return to the workforce when he was three months old. I was completely unprepared and my son went from an exclusively breastfeeding baby to a mostly formula baby within a short period of time.
How Long Should You Breastfeed - Unfortunately, how long a mother should nurse her baby does not have an easy answer. Advice given by people, whether it's doctors, a breastfeeding counselor or your mother, it is confusing and contradictory.
Basic Breastfeeding Tips - 1. Drink a lot of water. I was drinking a gallon of water per day. If you can't stomach that much water then mix it up with Gatorade. 2. Eat a lot! And eat good foods like protein and healthy foods. 3. Sleep. Keeping your body refreshed and rested is essential.
