How will you know that your baby is getting enough milk? What’s the difference between colostrum and milk, and when can you expect to transition from one to the other? Which breast pump is best? How do you safely store milk once you’re successfully pumping….and when is it okay to start? Challenges with breastfeeding are common in the beginning, but how do you solve them? We’ll cover the answers to all of these questions during our 90-minute course taught LIVE by an experienced IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant).
Led by breastfeeding expert Donna Sinnott, IBCLC, who has been supporting new mothers and babies in Philadephia and surrounding suburbs for more than 25 years. She’s an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and is Paoli Hospital’s full time lactation consultant, where she’s affectionately known as “Boob Donna” on the Maternity Unit. We are thrilled to have her share her expertise with parents-to-be here at MLFEd!
Donna’s class is small and have a “consult” as well as a community feel. You’ll have the opportunity to interact directly with her as well as other moms-to-be and have all your questions answered.
