Join us for Breastfeeding 101! Learn everything you wanted to know about breastfeeding (but were afraid to ask!)
Whether you’re expecting and thinking about breastfeeding or currently breastfeeding, this Sassy Mama Expert Chat is for you! In our live discussion and Q&A with Dr. Trisha Upadhyaya from Osler Health International, she’ll discuss valuable pointers such as:
- Nutritional benefits and current breastfeeding recommendations. The American Association of Paediatrics have recently updated its guidance to “continue breastfeeding until two years or beyond, as mutually desired by mother and child”. Read what Dr. Upadhyaya has to say about this!
- Tips to help empower you along your breastfeeding journey, including how to get that perfect (sometimes seemingly elusive) latch.
- Troubleshooting common breastfeeding woes like low and oversupply, cracked nipples and pain, tongue and lip tie, blocked ducts, engorgement, mastitis and more. Breastfeeding isn’t for the faint of heart (but with this info you’ll be so much better prepared)!
- When to seek support from a GP or a lactation consultant.
