Why Participants Liked the Class Moms supporting other moms I liked the group class because you learn youre not the only one going through these things. Somebody asked a question that I was thinking about but was too shy to ask.
Why Participants Liked the Class Observing their babies and other babies I liked learning about the I want to be near you cues. I thought that newborn babies just sit there, and didnt realize they want to interact. My baby sucks on the bottle when I know he should be full. Now I know why and know that he is full. I didnt realize you have to pay such close attention to noticing when a baby is full if you give him a bottle
Breastfeeding Support A bottle feeding moms comment to a breastfeeding mom: People told me to only breastfeed my baby every 3 hours. Ive been breastfeeding him whenever he shows me hunger cues, and now I know that my gut feelings were right. I think its easier to know what your baby needs when you are breastfeeding
