Breastfeeding Lifestyle: Transitioning Beyond the Basics

Transitioning Beyond the Basics

Expanding beyond Breastfeeding Beginnings: Basics for Success, this class will cover how to make breastfeeding a lifestyle for as long as it works you and your baby. This class will cover breastfeeding challenges, expressing and storing milk away from home, choosing and using a pump, and preparing for work leave and return. This class will also discuss resources for continued support. Participants should attend Breastfeeding Beginnings prior to attending Breastfeeding Lifestyle.

When is the class? This class is offered monthly in-person and online

Who should attend? Pregnant persons toward the end of their pregnancy and their support person are all encouraged to attend. The knowledge and support of those around the breastfeeding parent and child significantly impact the success of breastfeeding.

If you have your baby already, you are welcome to attend and bring your support person and baby (up until baby starts crawling). You are also encouraged to attend Baby Café for any questions or concerns they may have regarding breastfeeding.

What do I bring? Something to write with and a small snack or beverage, if desired. Explanation of how to use your particular pump can be done in the hospital when you deliver or during a visit with a lactation consultant.
