Preparing for Birth: Breastfeeding

Welcome to the fifth week in our 10 week series on Preparing for Birth! This week’s focus is on breastfeeding. Breastfeeding a new baby for the first time can definitely be challenging. Learning the process can be greatly facilitated by education and the right support. It is also a very rewarding experience that I’m preparing for again for this second baby.

I shared some beautiful verses on breastfeeding here before, as well as a Nursing Poem, and you can read some of my early breastfeeding experiences with Marcella in my How Motherhood Came to Me post and Marcella’s Birth Story. You can also read some great posts on breastfeeding in my World Breastfeeding Week Sunday Surf.

I’m happy to share the posts below as well:

Be on the lookout later this week for some resources I used as well as 2 guest posts from Hybrid Rasta Mama and The Pierogie Mama! African Babies Don’t Cry and Musing Mommy will be sharing about breastfeeding on their blogs as well.
