Commit to breastfeeding! Lactation support is the answer should you feel yourself beginning to waiver.
Breastfeeding success is a personal journey — and often a hit or miss for women. Avoid the “miss” by connecting yourself to local support. Fortunately, the hospital where you plan on delivering your baby offers breastfeeding classes in addition to lactation support and breastfeeding supplies. But once you’re home with your baby, you may feel a bit isolated. That’s when it’s time to reach out. Call your hospital for lactation support. If you’re not satisfied with that, keep on reaching out to find the support you need. Start with the La Leche League. Other resources follow that list:
