The best way to protect your teen or preteen from serious diseases is to make sure they have received the recommended vaccines for their age group. As pediatrician Dr. Chelsea Wicks explains, some vaccinations are required in Nevada for kids entering the 7th grade.
Research shows breastfeeding initiation, exclusivity and duration can be increased with prenatal breastfeeding education. Regardless of form—individual, group or technology-based—education programs are effective in providing women with evidence-based breastfeeding information and guidance.
Taking an education class or scheduling a consultation with a lactation consultant can not only help answer any and all questions you have about breastfeeding ahead of time, it can also help calm your fears and prepare for the birth of your baby.
