The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breastfeeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to be informed and empowered. You can avoid many of the common issues that new moms experience by learning about the benefits of skin-to-skin holding, talking to your medical providers, avoiding artificial nipples and supplements, getting a good latch, and knowing that baby is getting enough milk. Partners are encouraged to attend.
