Family Bonding Series (Part 3)

The First 7 Days: Infant Feeding
with Ashley Treadwell & Brave Birth Doulas

In this section of our Family Bonding Series, you’ll learn:

  • What to expect in the first seven days after birth

  • How to get breast/chest-feeding off to a good start

  • How to know if your baby is getting enough

  • When and how your milk will come in

  • Positioning for feeding

  • When to seek additional support

Curious about bottle feeding? Some families decide that breast/chest-feeding isn’t for them for one reason or another. We’d love to offer support around what it looks like to supplement with formula, dry up supply, etc. Please contact Ashley Treadwell at Cascadia Lactation for a feeding consult.

Ashley Treadwell is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and is skilled in assessing your baby for tethered oral tissue ("tongue and lip tie"), helping babies transition from bottle to breast/chest, pre-mature infants, low milk supply, painful breast/chest-feeding, and anxiety and insecurity surrounding breast/chest-feeding challenges.
