Bringing home a newborn baby is an incredibly exciting time for parents, but it can also be pretty challenging when it comes to breastfeeding. If you’re planning to breastfeed, having a tough time with it, or know someone who is, this episode is for you.

Tune in to learn:

  • Why babies are expected to lose about 5% of their birth weight within the first 24 hours of life
  • The protective characteristics of colostrum, and when it should be produced in abundance
  • What proper latching should look and feel like, and why it’s important for the baby
  • Why and skipping feedings slows milk production, and the process of re-lactation

Kassi Reyes is a registered nurse specializing in human lactation. With additional training as a lactation consultant and a mother herself, she works both virtually and in person with families who are struggling with the breastfeeding process. Reyes provides online courses and has a lactation-specific YouTube channel with informational videos for families all over the world.

She discusses the most common issues parents have when trying to breastfeed, such as poor and/or painful latching, tongue tie in babies, and too much or not enough weight gain in the days following birth. She shares recommendations for re-lactation, how long to breastfeed, and so much more.
