Breastfeeding Advice


*Check out who won the Froggy Hunt [2].


I am on my eighth year of breastfeeding and I have a few bits of advice to share.

No, I haven’t nursed a single child for eight years! I have successfully nursed seven children for approximately one year each, and am currently nursing my eighth baby.

By “successfully”, I DON’T mean that it has been smooth sailing all the way. I mean that I have stuck with it and ridden out the bumps along the way, and my babies were well nourished by my breast milk.

Before I share my advice, I would like to remind you that these are things that I have found useful. I’m no doctor. I don’t even play one on TV, but these are a few tips I have discovered over the years that I hope you will find helpful.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. There are some things I don’t know, like “Does beer help with milk production?” and some things I’m sure I have forgotten to say here.

If you have something you’d like to know, leave it in the comments and I’ll try to address it.
