Yesterday night, we went to a breastfeeding class. I think we both learned A TON! Mark was cute; he thought water should be given to newborns, too. 🙂 We learned it is recommended to breastfeed 6-12 months, and not introduce solids until 6 months WITH breast milk. The LC (Lactation Consultant, I think), said more women CAN breastfeed than CANNOT, and it is important to surround yourself with women that have had positive experiences breastfeeding, rather than negative experiences. I’d say I have a 50/50 mix between family and friends that did and did not breastfeed. Our hospital has a free support group for breastfeeding mothers that we were recommended to check out even BEFORE the baby is here. We learned best positions for holding baby so he latches (apparently, the football hold is best), correct latching formation of the mouth, advantages of a breastfed baby, poop coloring (pictures and all!), the dad’s role in it all, and when to pump. It was super informative!
