Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding is the most natural way to feed our babies, but it isn't always easy to get started. Most moms need some help at first. If you are a new or expectant Mom who wants to breastfeed, contact us at 518-234-4303 before or after your baby is born.

You can learn about:

  • Mother's Health
  • The Importance of Breastfeeding for Mothers and Babies
  • Changes that happen when you are pregnant that get you ready to breastfeed your baby
  • How to position your baby to get proper latch and prevent sore nipples
  • How to pump and store breast milk, and how long it can be kept at room temperature, in the refrigerator, or in the freezer
  • How to breastfeed in public, and the laws that protect breastfeeding mothers

Breastfeeding is the gift that lasts a lifetime!
