So before you started breastfeeding you probably rarely used the terms “latch” “pumping” or “duct.” Now you’re breastfeeding and you find these words are often a part of your vocabulary.
What’s really interesting is the fact your google search history probably gives away that you are a breastfeeding mom and you often feel like you don’t know what you’re doing. Am I right? If you’re like me you probably do a google search for everything. Read below and see how many of these things you’ve googled since you started breastfeeding.
- How do I know if I got a good latch?
- What’s the best position for breastfeeding?
- How long should I breastfeed?
- How do I quit breastfeeding?
- How do I make more breast milk?
- How do I know if I make enough breast milk?
- Why is my breast milk soapy smelling?
- How long can I leave breast milk out?
- How do I freeze breast milk?
- What is nipple confusion?
- How do I get rid of a clogged duct?
- Why is my baby so fussy after nursing?
- Can I eat sushi while breastfeeding?
- Can I get pregnant if I’m breastfeeding?
- Can I take (insert medicine name) while breastfeeding?
- Is it safe to drink alcohol while breastfeeding?
- How do I pump and dump?
I’m pretty positive that you’ve googled at least one of these questions before! While I don’t have all of these answers posted on my site, you can certainly ask your question to a group of over 300 moms who have either breastfed in the past or are currently breastfeeding in the Moms Make Milk Facebook Group. It’s a private group and no one outside of the group can see what you post. It’s a really supportive environment and I’d love for you to be a part. All you have to do is request to join and I’ll add you to the group.
