Breastfeeding Basics

Learning the ABCs of breastfeeding typically does not take long, and there are plenty of very credible sources to teach women how to do it.

Mom can start preparing during pregnancy, with several basic steps. She can take a breastfeeding class (check with the delivery hospital) and join a breastfeeding support group. Good advice comes from moms who have breast-fed in the past. Employers may have a support program and a plan for mom’s return to work. Moms can look for child care centers near work that let her breast-feed during lunch or breaks.
