How to Feed Your Newborn Baby
Breastfeed. Pump. Bottle feed.
A realistic approach to breastfeeding (including pumping & bottle feeding) for expectant parents.
By attending the How To Feed Your Newborn Workshop you will:
- Feel stronger conviction around your infant feeding choices.
- Ensure your baby is always fed. No matter what.
- Understand how to both breastfeed and bottle feed and how to bond with your baby through both.
- Get clear about how and when to pump your milk (and how much is realistically supposed to be in your freezer).
- Let go of any beliefs you may have that your infant feeding choice is related to “how good of a parent” you are.
Back to Workshop
Let’s get pumped for going back to work! Or at least figure out how the heck you’re going to do this.
You’re getting ready to do something hard, mama – leaving your brand new baby with a trusted caregiver and getting back to business is no easy task.
In the Back To Workshop, we’ll help you start to unpack those big emotions as well as review the skills that can help you adapt your breastfeeding relationship to your work life.
You’ll also have a chance to connect with a group of local moms preparing to go back-to-work, and build a community of support for yourself through this transition.
Set realistic goals for the second half of your breastfeeding relationship.
You’ve achieved 6 months or more of breastfeeding! Way to go mama!! You have accomplished what fewer than 50% of mothers who started breastfeeding are able to achieve. That is not a small or easy feat as you know. I hope you are damn proud of yourself.
So what’s next?
This workshop will give you the opportunity to explore your options as you enter into the second half of breastfeeding. You will leave with a customized plan for yourself and your unique breastfeeding relationship and the confidence that you have concrete steps in place to achieve your next breastfeeding goal.
Weaning doesn’t have to feel like a break-up. Let’s end or adjust the end of your breastfeeding relationship with kindness.
Your weaning experience deserves as much time, attention, and effort as early breastfeeding.
In the Weaning Workshop, we will create a safe, supportive space to not only reflect on and celebrate your breastfeeding journey, but also to acknowledge the sadness that can accompany this transition.
We’ll also explore how to determine the best time to wean, what to do if baby disagrees, and the gentlest, most effect strategies for weaning when you’re ready.
