Feeding your Baby
Feeding your baby can be one of the most emotionally charged aspects of your postpartum experience. Everyone has an opinion and all of them seem to be negative. The truth of the matter is, you have to do what is right for you and your baby. You are unique individuals with unique needs. We support you no matter what feeding your baby looks like. From formula feeding at birth to breastfeeding through preschool, and everything in between.
Our Infant Feeding Specialists are also Postpartum & Infant Care Doulas so they can be there for the middle of the night feeds that sometimes feel extra overwhelming. If you’re having breastfeeding issues, they can help bridge the gap between where you are and your IBCLC appointment. We will always refer you to the appropriate provider for things that are beyond our scope when it comes to feeding your baby. But for the everyday life things like "what does sex look like while breastfeeding?” and “how do you make formula properly?” and “what is this solids madness about?” and even “I have to start cow’s milk now??” we are there with unbiased, non-judgmental support and answers. Curious as to why we feel this way about supporting families choosing to feed their babies any way they need to? Read this awesome blog written by Tiffany for ProDoula.
