Breastfeeding Tips from Dr. Greene & BornFree Bottle Giveaway

As a mom who breastfed, I am always looking for tips to educate myself for future breastfeeding adventures. Here are some tips from Dr. Greene regarding breastfeeding:
DR. GREENE BREASTFEEDING TIPS
· If your breast fed baby is colicky, it is worth a try to eliminate cow’s milk from your diet. You will want to avoid cheese, ice cream,
milk (in a glass or on cereal), yogurt, puddings, custards, cream sauces, and butter.
* Drink at least eight glasses of water a day. This will help increase your milk supply.
* Make sure that you are getting the recommended daily amount of vitamins and minerals as this becomes even more important during
breastfeeding — both for the baby and for the mother who enriches her milk for her child.
* Don’t feed your baby more often than every hour-and-a-half to two hours. She may want to eat more often, but you will not have the milk she needs in less than an hour-and-a-half (from start time to start time).
* When transitioning from breastfeeding to bottle feeding, choose glass or stainless steel baby bottles. BornFree offers leak proof
BPA-Free baby bottles that come in plastic or glass and feature an innovative venting system designed to promote ActiveFlow(tm) and help minimize the painful symptoms of colic
