Topics Discussed:

  • How to be proactive in avoiding breastfeeding challenges
  • What to expect with nipple tenderness

  • What mom can do to help her baby with reflux (does she really need to avoid all cruciferous veggies?!)
  • Galactagogues to help with increasing breast milk supply
  • Ovulating during nursing
  • And more!
