Breastfeeding can be a beautiful part of the new mom experience but it can also be daunting and disappointing. This week on the podcast, certified lactation consultant Katie Kennedy, IBCLC, talks with me about what mamas can do to set themselves up for breastfeeding success (and what success really means when it comes to this sensitive area)...and what they can do if it feeding their babies doesn’t go as planned.
Looking for even more advice on breastfeeding or on ALL things new baby?

Author Whitney Casares, a pediatrician and mom of two, walks expectant parents through all the essentials of prepping for baby’s arrival, including what to expect in the first days and weeks, and how to prepare your home, your partner and your brain for having a newborn—all through a relatable mix of humor and practical advice."
