Breastfeeding A to Z

Seek Other Mothers

Besides trying to make things simpler and asking for help, I encourage you to seek out other mothers.  It might be a support group at your church or local hospital, a Newborn Parenting Group, La Leche League Meeting or a group of moms in your neighborhood.  Check in your area for a group to be a part of or consider starting one.

Many new mothers feel isolated and that their experience with a new baby is unique.  It is a great relief and support to new mom’s to connect with other mothers.  It is a great network to develop, especially if you do not have family support nearby.
