Hi Mamma! I wanted to take a few minutes today to let you know about a great online breastfeeding class that will help you prepare for your little one’s arrival. Stacey at Milkology created a comprehensive breastfeeding class to help get you through breastfeeding and pumping like a boss. Understanding the mechanics and why you’ll want to breastfeed before baby’s arrival is hugely helpful. Once baby arrives, feeding, schedules, and all the things that come along with a new little human can quickly become overwhelming. Doing your research beforehand really helps mentally prep you for baby’s first nursing session and those early weeks. So, without further ado, here’s a sneak peek of what you will learn in The Ultimate Breastfeeding Class.

In The Ultimate Breastfeeding Class you’ll learn about the following topics:
The benefits of breastfeeding
Ok, you probably feel like you already know this one. And there’s no doubt your doctor has asked if you’ll be breastfeeding already. But there were so many things I didn’t know about breastmilk until I took a class. For instance, did you know that it’s ALIVE? There are actual living organisms in breastmilk that will change and adapt to your baby’s needs as she grows, or during sickness. Breastfeeding provides benefits to both babies and moms.
The process of lactation
This section talks about the process of lactation, let down, and hormone release during pregnancy and after birth. Mastering your milk supply and understanding the supply and demand process of breastfeeding is a critical component of this lesson. Most moms quit breastfeeding because they feel like they don’t have enough milk. Stacey’s class will help debunk this myth and provides all the information you need to get off on the right foot.
Techniques for latching, positioning, and pumping
If you really want to be prepped before baby’s arrival, you’ll need to have a few breastfeeding positions under your belt. Understanding the basics of latching and positioning is hugely helpful when both you and your baby are trying to get the hang of the new skill of breastfeeding. Additionally, you’ll likely want to express milk at some point shortly after baby arrives. Whether it’s to stimulate milk production and let down or to help relieve engorgement, this section will provide the tips you need to pump successfully.
Get Ready Mamma – What to Expect When Baby Arrives
One of the biggest concerns of new breastfeeding moms is whether or not their baby is getting enough to eat. Understanding normal diaper output and weight gain will help alleviate these concerns. This section also details what the first two months of life will look like, which helps you prepare for how to move into a breastfeeding relationship.
Finally, one of the most important things you can do if you intend to breastfeed is to find a support system. Breastfeeding is amazing, but it’s hard work. Find a support system and ensure you have a strong network of people to help you on this journey.
Why It’s Awesome
For only $19 you’ll receive access to the online course that includes videos on all of the above topics, PLUS Free Bonuses. The Troubleshooting Guide bonus alone is worth the $19 price tag. Before I had a baby I didn’t even know many of those things existed. With detailed videos and information on everything you’ll need to know about breastfeeding, The Ultimate Breastfeeding Guide is a must-have resource to jumpstart your journey.
