This course covers breastfeeding with supplementation, breastfeeding with occasional pumping/bottle feeding, exclusively pumping, exclusively formula feeding, combo feeding (breast, pumping/expressed breastmilk and/or formula). Basically all feeding methods beyond exclusive breastfeeding!
Yes! There is an entire lesson dedicated to bottle refusal.
Maybe. Chronic low supply is complex, and may require individualized support depending on the reason for low supply. I dive deep into signs of low supply, causes of low supply, and evidence-informed strategies to maximize supply. This is not a guarantee of improved supply as every person is unique. It’s also important to note that some causes of low supply are not correctable.
Yes! There is a specific chapter dedicated to returning to work, in addition to tons of relevant info in the chapters on pumping, breast pumps, breast milk storage, and bottle feeding.
I do provide a list of recommended products and suggested features you should look for in a pump based on your specific needs. However, these are not blanket recommendations. There is no perfect product out there as every parent and baby are unique.
I do not endorse one particular brand of formula over another. There is a comprehensive chapter on formula within the course, which includes lessons on types of formula, how to choose a formula, and switching formula.
Yes! This course covers pumping and bottle feeding in depth, and will be very helpful to you whether you use formula or not.
