Breastfeeding

Before baby arrives, think about breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is the absolute best way to feed your baby, but you may not have seen anyone breastfeed and you may have questions and concerns. This is normal, and you should have all the facts. Many years ago before formula was ever invented, all babies had breastmilk and nothing else. It was very natural, and people didn’t think twice about it. Breastfeeding is not just about feeding your baby, it’s also about protecting your baby from germs, protecting yourself and helping your body adjust, and the most beautiful thing about breastfeeding is the bond you and your baby will develop. Talk to your midwife, public health nurse, or OBS about breastfeeding before baby arrives!
