Preparing to Breastfeed

This resource is incredible with videos talking about the benefits of breastfeeding to learning techniques and troubleshooting common issues! I will be up front this is not a free resource and I am an affiliate, but I am an affiliate because I wholeheartedly love what she has to share. I wish I had this resource before my first was born. The videos are short enough that you can watch a few during some down time. You may be thinking that the videos are short so they aren’t good? You couldn’t be more wrong.

I strongly urge you to check out this resource and her website which has some free resources.
