feeding essentials checklist

A well-fed baby is a happy baby! Whether you plan to breastfeed, bottle feed or a combination of both, be prepared at the hospital with all the equipment and support you need. Feeding will be your first official act as a new parent. From that first time, feeding metrics (frequency, length, amount) and baby weight will become essential statistics in your life. Whatever method of feeding you choose, listen to your baby and be open to change - the goal of feeding, first and foremost, is to nourish your baby.

nm tip: Did you know that a new baby may need to be fed as often as every two hours? Did you also know that, as a new parent, it may take you an hour and a half to prepare for and complete a feeding? Now do the math.
