Preparing for Breastfeeding Success

Breastfeeding is a special time in you and your baby’s life. During pregnancy your body has been getting you ready to breastfeed your newborn baby. While your body is getting you physically ready, you may want to do some preparation in your last trimester to help ensure breastfeeding is an enjoyable success.

Do Your Breastfeeding Research

Talking to other nursing moms is a great place to start learning. You can also read books or jump online to find breastfeeding articles and videos that will introduce you to breastfeeding. Consider taking a breastfeeding class (offered by most hospitals) sometime in your last trimester.
