Infant Feeding Essentials Class

The early weeks of parenthood are full of new experiences and a major part of that is figuring out how to feed your baby! Did you know that newborn babies need to eat an average of 8-12 times per day? If you're thinking, that's all I'm going to be doing for awhile - you're right! Learn the basic skills you'll need to breastfeed, chestfeed, pump, and bottle feed - or any combination of these!

This class will cover:

  • The basics of how your body makes milk and what you need to do to support this process

  • How to get breastfeeding or pumping off to a great start from birth

  • What to expect in the first few days and weeks of your baby's life in terms of feeding behaviors

  • Latch and positioning techniques to help your baby get a good attachment and avoid nipple pain and damage

  • How to know that your baby's getting enough

  • How to manage engorgement and avoid mastitis

  • Pumping practices and routines - the opportunity to see multiple pumps and ask questions you have about them!

  • Bottle feeding techniques, formula preparation, and more!

Partners are highly encouraged to come! - one ticket is good for both you and your partner or other support person.  (Please Note: Partners do not include friends or other pregnant people, must be your direct support person, i.e. your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc. Thank you! )

Pumping Prep

  • The opportunity to see multiple pumps, how they works, questions you may have and what pump is best for you

  • How to effectively use a pump

  • Flange fitting - what it is and why it is important

  • Tips and tricks for optimal pumping practices and routines

  • Back to work prep

  • Milk storage guidelines and preparation

  • Your laws and rights regarding breastfeeding in the workplace
