Breastfeeding Support Starts With Family!
Moms need support from everyone to make breastfeeding work- especially their family and friends.
This Dad’s Support Made a Big Difference
“I felt it was important to be there for her. When there was a sleepless night, I helped to make it more comfortable-if she needed water, or a pillow or just having me there…It felt good to be there for her. [I] felt that I was taking on dad role.” -Jason/Tristan’s Dad
“Jason supported me 100%-If I hadn’t had his support and help with problems-I probably would not have continued.” -Jessica/baby Tristan, 18 months
Grandmothers and Friends Can Be Supportive Too!
“[I loved to] watch my baby nurture her baby [and] continue the nurturing outside the body.”- Maternal Grandmother to Tristan
“It [watching my daughter breastfeed] was awesome, [even though] I didn’t do it myself.”- Mother to Tesla and Grandmother to baby James
