Frequently Asked Questions for Breastfeeding

Q- Will breastfeeding hurt?

A-It shouldn’t. When infants breastfeed correctly there is no pain. Ask your healthcare provider about breastfeeding classes so you can learn how to make breastfeeding work. And ask your nurses to assist you when you have the baby to determine that it’s working well and there will be no pain.

Q- Can I breastfeed if I have small breasts?

A- Yes you can. Breasts come in all sizes. If you have felt changes in your breast during your pregnancy, that is the first sign your breasts are preparing for lactation.

Q-How do I know how much milk my baby is getting?

A- What goes in must come out! You can tell that your baby is getting enough milk from the number of wet and soiled diapers, how often your baby is feeding, and your baby is gaining the correct amount of weight.

Q- Do I need to eat a special diet or avoid certain foods?

A- No, a healthy diet and eating a variety of healthy foods is advisable. Eat to hunger and drink to thirst.

Q- What if Dad wants to feed the baby?

A- He can certainly help out in many ways. After the first month, and breastfeeding is established, The American Academy of Pediatrics says it is a great idea to start pumping. Then Dad can feed an occasional bottle of expressed breast milk. Remember, there are so many more aspects to baby care that Dad can do to establish his relationship and bond with his baby.
