This information and video are a part of Nurtured Nest's on-demand class, Breastfeeding 101.

It is important for breastfeeding families to remind themselves that every breastfeeding journey is unique. While we know this is hard to do in the depths of sleep deprivation and the steep learning curve of early parenting, seeking support, staying informed, and being kind to oneself can make the breastfeeding experience more enjoyable and successful. This video will go through some of common expectations and realities of families that our IBCLC, Courtney Miller, has encountered.
