Overcoming Breastfeeding Challenges during National Breastfeeding Month

Breast pain

If you recently read about the Top Five Benefits of Breastfeeding, you may have decided that you are ready to start breastfeeding. However, many women do encounter challenges when breastfeeding that can feel frustrating and discourage them from continuing. The benefits to both mother and child are worth the struggle, so we have compiled a list of the most common breastfeeding challenges and the solutions that we think may help.

Celebrating National Breastfeeding Month and International Breastfeeding Week

National Breastfeeding Month and International Breastfeeding week both occur in August, so Capital Women’s Care wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate some of the benefits of breastfeeding.

The American Association of Pediatrics recommends that mothers breastfeed exclusively for six months, before introducing any other food to their baby. After other foods are introduced after six months of age, it is recommended that mothers breastfeed in conjunction with other foods for at least six more months.
