Breastfeeding Your Baby (0-12 Weeks)
Your how-to guide to breastfeeding your baby, overcoming challenges, and adjusting to postpartum life: An on-demand video class for parents of newborns.
Before your own baby arrived, you’d rarely or never seen a newborn baby breastfeeding up close.
You’re unclear on how to establish a milk supply.
You’re not feeling confident that your baby is getting enough milk, or that breastfeeding is going well.
You want to avoid, or are already struggling with, challenges like painful nipples, low milk supply, engorgement, plugged ducts, and/or mastitis.
You’re feeling overwhelmed and anxious, and you aren’t sure if you can do this.
Honestly, if it wasn’t for this class, I would have given up on breastfeeding. I took this class when my son was two weeks old and it made a huge difference. Now he’s 13 weeks and I have no plans to stop.

Have Any Questions?
I'm on the fence about taking this class. What should I know?
If you are struggling with breastfeeding in any way, it can impact your entire postpartum life: how you feel about motherhood, your relationship with your partner, and your physical and emotional recovery after birth. The opposite is also true: when you feel knowledgeable about breastfeeding, it can make for a much smoother transition to your new life with your baby. Breastfeeding has lifelong health benefits for both you and your baby, and scientists are still just beginning to understand the secrets and magic of human milk. If you want to breastfeed your baby, getting help right now matters. The early weeks of breastfeeding are crucial for setting yourself up to nurse for as long as you want to. Much, if not all, of the class will be new information for you that can make you feel more confident with each passing minute of video. And with a 30 day guarantee, you have nothing to lose.
Is this class in place of seeing a Lactation Consultant?
You will learn many lessons in this class, and grow your knowledge and confidence on a broad range of breastfeeding-related topics. The information you learn may very well be enough to answer your questions and help address your challenges. However, if you watch the class and are still struggling, or if your baby is not gaining weight appropriately, or you have any other concerns, you should reach out to an IBCLC for personalized help immediately.
Can I take the class with my partner/spouse/support person?
YES! Studies show that partner and family participation is one of the most important factors for breastfeeding success. We’ve heard from our customers that watching the class together allows both parents to feel inspired, excited, and on the same page about breastfeeding.
I'm already struggling with low supply. Can I still take this class?
Yes! We have a full chapter on this topic. You’ll learn how to ensure your baby is getting enough milk while also protecting your breastfeeding relationship. You’ll also learn everything you need to know about the basics of milk production, which can help grow your confidence in a big way.
I'm pregnant. Can I take this class?
Absolutely! We do offer a class for Expectant Parents, but this class goes into much more detail on a broad range of topics. If you’ve already taken our Breastfeeding for Expectant Parents class, watching this class is the best way to empower yourself with important information before your baby arrives.
How long do I get access for?
This is an on-demand video class, so you can curl up on your couch and watch it at any time. You get access to the class for six months. If you need more time, just send us an email at su[email protected] and we’ll happily accomodate you.
