Feeding a child starts the minute they are born, yet very little feeding education is made available to parents during pregnancy. What many of us expect to be a natural act can actually turn out to be complicated and confusing. Erica Campbell of The Milk Manual talks to us about early feeding and gives breastfeeding tips to make those first few months of feeding more joyful, no matter what baby ends up eating, breastmilk, formula, or a combination of the two.
