Why does breastfeeding seem so hard?
The good news? There is something simple you can do to make breastfeeding easier. It is as simple as changing your position. Laid back breastfeeding, also called natural breastfeeding, allows the mom to relax while the baby is better able to get a good latch. The baby's tummy is down, mom is laid back, and everything works so much better! Here is a link to some videos of laid back breastfeeding to help you figure it out. You got this!
Of course, if you are in the Asheville area, and do find that you need some extra support (and all postpartum women deserve support!) our wonderful postpartum doulas are available. We also facilitate a free bi-monthly new mama support group, as well as a free monthly breastfeeding café, where you can find help and support for your concerns. Please feel free to join up with our doula moderated Facebook group, Asheville Babies, where you can ask your breastfeeding, pregnancy or new mama questions. We are always happy to help!
