Breastfeeding Peer Counselors How WIC Supports Breastfeeding You are an expert, too.
What do you think? American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends 6 months exclusive breastfeeding then introducing solids and continuing to breastfeed until baby is 1 year old.
World Heath Organization (WHO) says up to 2 years. What the experts say How long should I breastfeed? Same foods as pregnancy - extra calories required will burn up extra weight from pregnancy.
Plenty of water, drink to thirst.
Rest when baby rests.
Breathe and take some time for yourself. Self-care sore nipples?
Most common cause is a bad latch. Nurse often and get help.
engorgement?

Do not restrict your baby’s feeding: Nurse when baby is hungry and let him finish when he’s done.
Avoid bottle feeding in the first month at least
If you are bottle feeding, pump to keep your milk moving.

There is no such thing as too much breastfeeding. Maintaining Supply:
Maintain Demand Stimulation at the breast tells your body release milk for the baby to drink
Baby’s sucking removes milk from the breast
Removal of milk signals body to make more milk Supply and Demand Colostrum is the yellow-ish, thick first milk
Small quantities—drops to teaspoonsful
Coats baby’s gut
First antibodies
Laxative to help baby pass meconium Colostrum: the First Milk
Colostrum is the perfect food for your baby until mature milk comes in at about 2-5 days.
Newborns nurse every couple of hours or more.
The more a baby nurses, the better, and the more milk you will make!
