Nursing on the Net
They say it takes a village to raise a child. In this age when many new mothers are separated from our extended families, we turn to the global village that connects online to provide that sense of community and support.
The latest innovation that's come our way is the Virtual Breastfeeding Help Consultation, an online guide that helps new mamas figure out what's meant to be a natural process but can cause many sleepless nights, not to mention sore boobs. All you need is Internet access, a webcam and SKYPE to hook up with a lactation consultant that can provide you with a 'Breastfeeding Care plan' in the comfort of your own home.
So if you're struggling with breastfeeding or just want some refresher tips, check out the Virtual Breastfeeding Help web site to book a slot or browse for advice. Through September you'll get a free Baby Bond Couture nursing cover-up (worth $35) with any consultation or gift certificate.
