Milk Expression and Feeding Class
Are you returning to work or school after having a baby or maybe you are working from home or parenting full time but would like to be able to leave the baby with milk? Are you considering exclusively pumping? Then this is the class for you! Anyone can take this class at any time, whether pregnant or post-partum but it compliments our Lactation Basics Class if taken immediately after that introductory class.
We will not be pumping during the class but will be watching videos and discussing a variety of topics related to removing your milk with various breast pumps and devices and how to effectively feed your baby with your own milk. We will have different pump models on display for instruction and discussion to guide you in purchasing the right one for you. In addition, we may discuss different ways to feed expressed milk to babies including bottle and nipple types. Partners and other support people, as well as infants, are welcome to join us.
This class is held at 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the Pattison Board Room, 2nd Floor, Samaritan Hospital – Tower Building. Registration is required.
Instructor: Carrie Kimball, BSN, RN, IBCLC.
