Are you pregnant and would like to breastfeed your baby? This online course over 2 evenings provides the information you need to make a good start.
During the first evening we discuss the basics of breastfeeding, drinking at the breast in terms of latch and frequency, how to recognise the hunger signals, when does the baby drink sufficiently, and the role of the partner.
During the second evening we address the separation of the mother from baby due to work or other circumstances, expressing and storing breast milk, recognising the most common issues with breastfeeding, and safely weaning off the breast when desired.
The partners are welcome to join on both evenings.
The costs (including partner) are:
– 25 euro including a breastfeeding pocket guide, Foley cup feeder and two La Leche League brochures in English ( www.borstvoeding.nl/product/brochure-zonder-woorden/www.borstvoeding.nl/product/the-first-weeks/). You can can either pick up these materials or have them sent to you by post at your own costs (4.50 euro)
