Tips for Healthy Breastfeeding with Dr. Alexandra Cox PA-C

Breastfeeding is one of the hardest parts of motherhood, but it can be very rewarding for you and your baby. If you choose to breastfeed, you may find that you run into some challenges along the way. Some mothers have trouble producing milk, while others can’t get their baby to latch on or they latch on too hard. No matter what your breastfeeding needs are, the postpartum wellness team at Atracare Health is here to help you. 

When you are breastfeeding, you are going to burn several hundred more calories each day than you normally would. It’s important to increase your water intake and make sure you are eating enough to support your body while feeding your baby. Eating a healthy, balanced diet will ensure that you and your baby are getting the proper vitamins and nutrients. If you are having trouble breastfeeding, the best thing you can do is talk to a healthcare professional who can provide you with the guidance you need.
