As a breastfeeding class instructor and international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC), I constantly get asked why women need to take a class to figure out breastfeeding.  "It's natural," they say.  "Childbirth is natural, too!,” I often reply, “but almost everyone takes a class to figure that out in advance!”

If you haven’t planned on taking a breastfeeding class, here are my top 10 reasons you should reconsider:

1. Most of the time you spend nursing, especially in the early stages, will be alone and/or with only your support person.  This is different from labor and birth; where most of your time will be surrounded by a sea of scrub-wearing professionals who have devoted their careers to caring for pregnant women and newborns.  2. Breastfeeding classes at Presbyterian are taught by our board-certified lactation consultants who are on staff at The Nursing Mother’s Place.  The class gives us the opportunity to get to know each other before your baby is born. 3.

Planning your pregnancy can help you make wise choices that will benefit both you and your baby. Many wThor Svendsen, MDomen don't know they are pregnant until several weeks after they have conceived, but these early weeks are key for the baby growing inside you.

Wimberley is a new mom of 9.5-month-old Alexander.  After her Labor Day traveling experience with her husband and new son, she shares her tips with the readers of Baby Bump, in hopes that they will help other new moms prepare for vacations.  After all, it's much different traveling with a baby - but much sweeter, too.

As my husband and I packed for our Labor Day beach trip, I thought to myself that it was a little like stocking up for the birth of our son, Alexander.  Diapers, check.  Clothes, check.  Bottles, breast pump, toys, crib sheet, blanket, monitor, etc.  Once the very long list was all checked off...
