Breastfeeding Class – October 8, 2022
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Breastfeeding classes are a great way to learn and prepare to breastfeed your newborn. This class gives first-time moms, as well as current moms an opportunity to ask questions and voice concerns regarding breastfeeding.
Each breastfeeding class we will discuss:
- Breastfeeding basics: benefits, making breast milk (transitions, production cycle, etc.), and special situations
- Latching on/positioning (what effective and ineffective latch looks like and feeding in the first weeks
- Feedings: when, hunger signs, feeding guidelines, tummy size, and feeding a sleepy baby
- How much is enough, satiety signs, and when to call your doctor
- Breast care (engorgement, nipple care, etc.)
- Breastfeeding lifestyle: taking care of yourself, returning to work, expressing milk, milk storage guidelines, and where to find support
Due to COVID-19, space is limited, and social distancing will be enforced. Masking will be enforced in compliance with SC DHEC guidelines that require that masks always be worn in healthcare facilities.
