For Breastfeeding:

One of the hardest parts of breastfeeding in the beginning, in my opinion, is keeping track of how often baby feeds, what side you fed on last, and how many dirty diapers baby has. I know it was super confusing for me the 1st time around!

Planning on breastfeeding? Want to recover faster after birth? Having food on hand for the first weeks (months) home with baby is important for establishing milk supply, healing and keeping your sanity.

Check out my ebook Healing Freezer Meals for Postpartum and Breastfeeding. It’s an easy to follow guide on how to make healthy freezer meals so you can spend less time stressing about what to eat and more time cuddling that baby!

Breastfeeding friendly freezer meals for postpartum with step-by-step instructions, tips and shopping list.

 

Are you a first time Mom? This online class from Milkology is perfect for learning the basics of breastfeeding! It’s taught by a lactation consultant and Mom and can help give you the confidence you need to be successful at breastfeeding. There is even a class on how to pump for Moms who will be going back to work.
