WEBSITES

kellymom – A website developed to provide evidence-based information on breastfeeding.

kellymom.com Forums – A place where you can connect with other breastfeeding moms and get answers to your questions about  breastfeeding.

Dr. Jack Newman – A website with many videos to help you understand what breastfeeding should look like. This site also boasts a lot of breastfeeding information. I highly recommend watching some of the videos on the site before you ever attempt to breastfeed. If you have the money, THIS video is excellent. It’s the video I watched the night prior to going into labor with my first baby. I believe it was one of the keys to my success with breastfeeding and to feeling absolutely NO discomfort when nursing both my babies.
