About the event

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 - you're right! Learn the basic skills you'll need to breastfeed, 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.

(Note: partners do not include other pregnant people, must be your direct support person, i.e. your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc.)
