Do not let baby slide onto the nipple, stopping short of the correct sucking position. Be sure he opens his mouth very wide so your nipple goes far back into his mouth.  - La Leche League Book

Breastfeeding is the ooptimal method of feeding infants. Breastfeeding may continue for up to 2 years of age and beyond - La Leche League Book

The Newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of it's mother, food from her breasts and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three.  - La Leche League Book

It may sound silly, but because of being able to breastfeed my baby for so long, I feel like superwoman!- Nursing Bra Express Facebook Fan

We baby gated our family room. And this is where we spend our day while the hubby is at work. I am either on the couch or in our big recliner. My little guy plays and watches movies all day. Only time I lift is to get him in and out of his high chair. Or in and out of his pack n play. I'm not supposed to... but I have no choice. - Nursing Bra Express Facebook Fan

Many Nursing Moms throw in the breastfeeding towel when they see their  baby's weight drop a few days after birth. Some weight loss is normal in your baby's first days of life. He should return to his birth weight within two weeks of deliver; after that, he should gain about 1/2 to 1 ounce a day until about 4 months of age. If he doesn't and you suspect he's not getting enough milk, see your pediatrician. - Fit Pregnancy

Breastfeed often, because the more often and the longer your baby latches on to suck, the more milk you'll produce. A lactation consultant can teach you the best techniques and positions! - Fit Pregnancy

Water, water & water with a pinch of salt to replace electrolytes lost through sweating. Living in San Antonio one could melt just stepping outside in the shade! Tank tops for quick access so baby stays hydrated as well. Lightweight onesies for my cutie. Hats and sunscreen. - Nursing Bra Express Facebook Fan

Don't get in a hurry, especially if baby is little and you're exclusively breastfeeding. Mommy is not just baby's food source but also the only hydration baby gets on hot days. Be prepared to be an on demand drinking fountain, so don't be in a hurry.   - Nursing Bra Express Facebook Fan
