Breast Milk Feeding 101

We all know that breast milk is great for babies, but how much do we really know about its value? What makes it so unique?

Let’s get together and talk about the amazing properties of breast milk.


Then we can address those situations when breastfeeding may not be possible and how a breast pump and other feeding devices can help bridge the gap, all with the same goal; we want every baby to get Mom’s milk!

We will also cover:

•The different types of breast pumps, so you can make an informed choice
•How, where, and for how long you can safely store your expressed milk
•How to feed expressed milk back to your baby and what to look for when choosing a nipple

Along with this valuable information, there are also great prizes to be won!
