Extend Breastfeeding Duration
Prenatal - 12 Months
"I had to stop breastfeeding. I didn't have enough milk."
We've all heard this before...misunderstanding a newborn's behavior causes many women to stop breastfeeding.
- Once past the initial two weeks 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.
- Extend breastfeeding duration by educating parents about normal growth and development during the first year of a baby's life.
