Why do you need breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding is a natural, instinctual way to feed our infants. However, there are several reasons why mothers may need help. To name a few:

  • Some mothers may have a low milk supply in the beginning;
  • The baby may need to stay in the NICU for observation and given baby bottles which in turn disrupts the breastfeeding relationship;
  • Your baby cannot latch on the breast right the way;
  • Simply, the baby is feeding but doesn’t gain weight, etc.

Breastmilk is the best food for your newborn and breastfeeding is best for the mom and babies. Utilizing breastfeeding support and the right feeding system can help you initiate, reinstate and extend the breastfeeding relationship while supplementing. The great news is, that most of the available breastfeeding support is covered by your health insurance and Medicaid.
