Have you considered a breastfeeding class yet?

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Have you heard from your friends or relatives about the breastfeeding class? Is it really required?



    Before your baby is born, it is a good idea to take a breastfeeding class. It does not come naturally so you need to give yourself some time to learn this art until you get the hang of it.

    Mommies prefer to take these classes now a days to learn the basics of breastfeeding. It takes a lot of time and patience for a mother to successfully nurse her baby. You might be thinking that you can buy some books or read online about breastfeeding. Yes, you can but you might still end up with certain questions which can only be answered by taking a class. Moreover, bookish knowledge and practical knowledge are two very different things.

    Why you should attend the class?

    -These classes will also help you on how to boost the supply, expressing /pumping the milk, different positions of breastfeeding, how to get your baby to latch and much more.

    -These kind of sessions actually answer your queries and help you to solve the problems, which might come at the later stage. Make full use of the session by jotting down your queries in advance and fire them in the session.

    -Those who teach breastfeeding classes are highly trained in this area or a certified lactation expert which ensures that you will get good and correct knowledge.

    -If you are of the impression that your hospital staff will assist you in breastfeeding once your baby is born then why should you go for this extra class? Well, truth is that they cannot assist you with all the tricks in such a short duration post your delivery and will probably skip some important topics like how to express milk when you resume office, etc.

    Mostly women’s suffer from breast engorgement, sore nipples, swelling and many more problems, which are associated with breastfeeding. Resolution of such problems can be learned and discussed in these classes.
