Enfamil "Breastfeeding Support" Kit
If you are an expecting mom planning on breastfeeding your baby, AVOID all "free" baby samples from formula companies. They are not interested in your success, only your failure.
To be successful::
1. Know that your body is MADE to feed to your child PERFECT food that will sustain them completely and exclusively for the first 6 months of their life and after that, be very foundation of their health for as long as your breastfeed.
2. Join a La Leche League group, even if your babe is a pro at nursing. The other moms there will be vital support resources in your breastfeeding relationship. Locate a group near you!
3. Find an IBCLC (lactation consultant) with good references just in case you need to ask questions or troubleshoot issues you may come across.
4. Avoid anyone who is negative about breastfeeding. Surround yourself with moms who have breastfed successfully and if you don't know any, join Kellymom.com's online forums for support.
