Private Breastfeeding Classes

Baby is coming soon, and you know you want to breastfeed, but the thought is overwhelming. How do you know what to do? Where do you start? How does it work? Do you need to take a class?While you’re still pregnant, one of the best ways to learn about breastfeeding is to take a class that provides hands-on practice. Tmuffin’s breastfeeding class in Wilmington, NC, provides complete preparation for breastfeeding (as close to the real thing as possible). In fact, our goal is to prevent a call to a lactation consultant after your baby is born. In our breastfeeding class, you’ll learn:

  • The benefits of breastfeeding.
  • How to hold and latch your baby on.
  • The supply and demand of your milk supply.
  • How to encourage a positive breastfeeding relationship even before baby is born.
  • About a breastfed baby’s poop and sleep.
  • How to do it all: breastfeed, manage your family, and get some sleep.
  • How to get support if you do experience a breastfeeding challenge.
  • Where to go to have your breastfeeding questions answered after your baby is born.
