  • Does your OB clinic have a lactation specialist? I think that would be the best way to go. You can also try here for tips and advice.


    Kudos on breastfeeding! I did it with both my boys and loved it, but don't be discourged if you have a hard time, and don't feel bad if it's something you end up not able to do.

  • There will probably be classes offered at the hospital where you give birth, and lactation consultants on staff to help you while you are in the hospital. Take full advantage of the services. Look for a La Leche League chapter in your area. There is also information in books such as "What to Expect When You're Expecting." But really, the best help will be the nurses or lactation specialists once your baby is born.

  • La Leche League. Find your local office/website. Most hospitals will have a lactation consultant on hand.

  • Also when you deliver the hospital is suppose to ask if you'd like to see a specialist
