Help For Breastfeeding Moms

Aug 18, 2007
Breastfeeding moms are generally eager to share their breast feeding expertise with other mothers. A group of them at the mall or local playground can be heard giving advice on breast pumps, formula feeding, caloric intake and good nursing bras. Breastfeeding moms will step in to help out new moms who are struggling with breast feeding their infant.

If you are looking for advice about breast feeding- a nursing mom may be your best source of information. Experience is the best teacher and a nursing mother can tell you all of the intimate details about breast feeding.

While a lactation consultant will provide a wealth of facts and statistics, a breastfeeding mom will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about breast feeding, without the sugar coating.

Another source of support is the internet. Baby websites can be a great way to connect with other moms and get some great tips and facts about breast feeding. Baby websites offer discussion forums, caloric intake calculators, nutrition information and inside tips for nursing moms.

Consulting a few baby websites can be another great way to connect with other moms who have first hand knowledge of the ins and outs of breastfeeding.

If you are looking for information about nutrition, a breast feeding specialist, lactation consultants and nurse practitioners are available to answer your questions. They can even help you develop a personalized eating plan that is healthy for you and your baby.

Many breastfeeding moms worry about losing pregnancy weight while still consuming enough calories to keep their infants healthy. It is possible to balance proper nutrition, breastfeeding and weight loss with a little advanced planning and effort.

Consulting a nutritionist or healthcare provider can help you sort through any confusion you may have regarding nutrition, breast feeding and weight loss.

When breastfeeding women band together, loneliness and isolation dissipate. Sharing friendship with others alike can help a first time mother adjust to her new role without sacrificing her personal identity. The stories, advice and support offered to new mothers by other breastfeeding women can be invaluable.

Joining a breast feeding advocacy group will provide you with access to newsletters, health fairs and a wealth of information about breastfeeding. A breast feeding advocacy group helps to promote its awareness and support in your community. Contact your local La Leche League representative for information about joining a breast feeding advocacy group in your area.

Breastfeeding moms don't have to suffer alone. Others alike are waiting to offer support, friendship and advice. The bond between those alike is special and often results in friendships that last a lifetime. Other mothers will understand your struggles because often times they have experienced them too.
