Baby at the Breast

Sorry...shamelessly proud mum here. My daughter Sarah painted this Warhol-esque breastfeeding baby (acrylic on canvas) as part of her final Breastfeeding Counselor project. Love it!

Now that we're on the topic of breastfeeding... A lot of women mistakenly believe that they will automatically receive incredible breastfeeding support at the hospital and during the initial weeks at home with the baby. Sadly, this is just a myth. Read about the resignations of local lactation consultant extraordinaire Renee Hefti, and then sign up for the breastfeeding courses that she offers in the community (604-733-6359).

Shameless promotion here - but it's truly necessary!

I recently attended one of Renee's breast feeding courses, and highly recommend it! I feel a lot calmer about breast feeding and more prepared to cope with potential challenges ahead :)
