Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
As you may know, I struggled a lot with nursing my first baby and was determined to get it right the second time around - complications and all. (You can read my son's birth & hospital story here.) What I discovered through my own experience, as well as through research as part of being a Baby Planner, is that having support and knowing who and where to turn to for help is the key to success!
If you are in the Los Angeles or Southern CA area, and are breastfeeding or want to breastfeed, mark your calendars for Boobiepalooza this Sunday!
