If you've ever taken my online breastfeeding class, then you've probably seen this statistic:
The #1 reason a woman gives up breastfeeding is because she thinks she isn't making enough milk.
Why is that??? Well..... one of the top reasons a mom thinks she's not making enough milk is because she doesn't understand what her baby is trying to communicate. The great news is newborns are actually excellent communicators, if you know how to interpret their language that is. In this blog we're going to talk about the 3 most important cues your baby uses to communicate, that could just save your breastfeeding relationship.
I'm so glad you stopped by to get the info you need for bottle feeding your breastfed baby.

Bottle feeding your baby seems simple right? You just put milk in a bottle, warm it up a little, and then put the bottle in baby's mouth and they drink. Right?
Well..... not exactly. This is typically how most people bottle feed a baby, however, there are some risks involved to just sticking bottle in baby's mouth and not giving feeding any more thought. (Wait, what?)
It seems ridiculous, right? What risk could there possibly be in feeding a baby a bottle? Now, I am not talking about risks that are immediately life threatening, but these risks are still highly concerning and should grab your attention! (But don't get too worried! I am going to give you the tools you need to avoid these risks while bottle feeding your baby!)
