Information to help mom be supportive of her baby’s ability to work through breastfeeding difficulties will be discussed.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Examine information about baby’s inborn ability to self-attach in order to provide increased support and opportunity for moms to be successful in breastfeeding.
2. Support and educate the breastfeeding dyad effectively.
