Lactation cookies-made these the other day and they are super yummy! My husband thought they were just regular oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! I made them with chocolate chips, but I am going to tray raisins or craisins and white chocolate chips next!
Mothers consistently rate their husband's support as the most important contributing factor to breastfeeding success. The father is more important than grandmothers, best friends...you are even better than nurses, doctors, and lactation consultants.
Babies will experience several "growth spurts" in the first few months of life. These are days when baby wants to nurse longer and more frequently to build up mother's milk supply. Follow baby's lead on this by letting him breastfeed as often and as long as he wants. This will help bring up milk supply quickly. #breastfeeding
The first breastfeeding challenge I ever faced was opposition. Some of my family didn't understand why I wanted to breastfeed. Most everyone else in the family had formula fed their babies for years. Why would I choose a different path?
After Labor Recovery Kit. This would be fun to put in a basket and give as a baby shower gift :) I know I didn't think to get this stuff before hand and if it wasn't for my mom and husband, I would have went without a lot of it!
