One of the many decisions a new mom will have to make is whether to breastfeed. This is a hot topic today as moms want to be able to feed their newborns in public without making people uncomfortable or feeling awkward themselves. 

Breastfeeding offers crucial nutrients to your child that formula cannot provide, but not all moms are able to breastfeed. Some female bodies do not produce enough milk to adequately satiate a child, and breastfeeding can lead to problems like soreness and mastitis. 

Did you know certain positions are better for breastfeeding because they allow for better milk flow? Even changing the locale where you breastfeed to promote calmness in both you and your baby can improve your breastfeeding experience. 

Caring for babies costs a lot of money, from paying for the birth to buying clothing and furniture. Breastfeeding can save you money as you simply have to eat healthy to feed your child - no need to purchase expensive formulas. Buying a breast pump can be a daunting experience, but with the right advice you'll know what to look for. Soon you'll be storing milk so you can take a little time to yourself and pass off the wonderful feeding experience to a trusted loved one.

Read on to learn if your child is getting enough breast milk, find tips for getting your little one to latch on, understand pumping etiquette and more. You and your baby will gain important nutrients and bonding time when you breastfeed.
