The second and final pre-natal class at the hospital covered feeding. Much discussion about breasts and nipples!
After the school-boy in me had managed to stop giggling, I did manage to get a fair amount of good information out of it. This coupled with the experience of looking after “Little-Frog” earlier in the year, fingers crossed, the Worrybomb wont starve and has a good chance of being in hospital when its born.
Whilst in the class, we looked at:
- How it all works ( with huge diagrams and knitted examples )
- Positions for feeding
- Problems you might encounter
- Support groups and help
- Best practises and general questions we all had
We where then given dolls to play with and to experiment with different positions. Its starting to get very exciting, and I still go through huge waves of happyness to mild panic about how it will go in a few weeks time.
