Breastfeeding and Bottles

A Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) or International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) will look at expressing (pumping) milk and safe bottle feeding practices with Mama’s milk.  We will look at the laws protecting women in the workplace (or school) who need to take time to express milk for their children.  Safe pumping practices and cleaning techniques for bottles and pumps will be discussed.  We will also look at storage of milk and then techniques for feeding a breastfed baby with a bottle (sometimes they get picky!)   This class is a great follow up to the Preparing to Breastfeed class.

This class is currently being offered as a 1.5-2 hour live webinar.  It helps to have a doll or stuffed animal with you as we review common holds.  We do suggest that partners or a support person attend with you if possible!  This class might be helpful for grandparents or family members caring for a primarily breastfed baby.
