Maybe post an invite somewhere, like in the teachers lounge, so they are all invited but don't feel obligated? And ask a close coworker/friend to be the contact person to RSVP to.

Breastfeeding is the best!! You should feel like a proud, powerful, life-giving mama when you do it! :) The idea of it can be a little weird, at first, and it is not always easy, but it is super rewarding and precious time w your little one. I am sooo glad i did it and didn't quit, my baby girl is almost 7 mos old and we are still going strong. Good lu...

I just started my dd on cereal at almost 5 months on my dr's recommendation. She was doing awesome w nursing but waking 4-6x a night to nurse! She weighs 15 lbs. I agreed that she seemed ready for cereal, and she loves it! I give it before bed, mixed w breastmilk. I had planned to wait until around 6 months to introduce cereal, but i do believe she reall...

Drink a full glass of water and lay down, on your side. If the cx don't stop call ur doc or go to the ER.

Yes, it is possible. I was advised to wait one month, though, to let the lining of the uterus thicken up. We tried right away and it took seven months to conceive after my d&c.

I don't think she meant to pump in public, lol, but to use a (pumped) bottle when in public! As for the rest, most babies are naturals and will teach you how to breastfeed. :) The LC at the hospital will help too w positions, etc. The only position i ever used is the cross cradle hold. Doing it right now. :)

It is soo hard at first. My dd had troublle latching, too. All i can say is it DOES get easier, so please hang in there! It is so worth it! You may want to try a bfing class where you take your baby w you. I know lots of ppl who have benefited from a class. Good luck!

Be sure to take advantage of the lactation consultant wwhen u are in the hosp. Taking a bf class before your baby comes might be a good idea, too. I have inverted nipples, and i was able to bf, currently w my LO who is 4 months old. At first i used a nipple shield, had to ask for it in the hosp. They are not typically recommended but that helped my LO latch...
