In this module we will help you learn about how to support and advocate for breastfeeding. Breastfeeding has many benefits for mother and baby but unfortunately mothers experience challenging in the early weeks. Key questions can help you figure out what issues need to be addressed. Sore nipples and worries about low milk are main concerns in terms of breastfeeding the early weeks. We will teach you about how to manage engorgement, sleepy feedings, tongue tie and mastitis.
