Episode 5: Breastfeeding Basics

July 3, 2018 Written by Kids First

Dr. Mimi Boren, IBCLC, one of our pediatricians and lactation consultants discusses breastfeeding basics. She reviews the health benefits of breastfeeding to both the baby and the Mom, including the emotional benefits and bonding experiences expected during the breastfeeding process. We learn about what to expect during the first few days of nursing and what our excellent team of lactation consultants at the Chicago Breastfeeding Center at Kids First Pediatric Partners can do to best support moms in their new role as nursing mothers!
