    "I don't think I have enough milk," the young mother reports.
     

    • Once past the initial two week of breastfeeding, the most common reason to give up breastfeeding is "worry about inadequate milk supply."  
    • 95% of women concerned about milk supply are actually misunderstanding a baby's normal behavior.
    • "If my baby fusses, is my milk 'weak' and unable to satisfy her?"
    • "If my baby looks away from me, does it mean she doesn't like me or my milk?"
    • "If my baby wiggles and squirms at night, does it mean he is still hungry and that I should try to wake him up to feed again?"

    What professionals say about this program:    "I've been an IBCLC since 1997 and was a LLL Leader for over 30 years so I thought I had heard it all. Not so! This program offered a new explanation of baby states and how to explain this to moms. Can't wait for the follow-up program!" Geraldine Perkins, home-visiting IBCLC Lactation Consultant from Chatham, New Jersey.
