  • Basic breastfeeding
  • Positioning and latching the baby at the breast
  • Dealing with breastfeeding difficulties that may arise
  • Breastfeeding twins or triplets
  • Breastfeeding a premature or special needs baby
  • Breastfeeding even when medical issues arise with mom or baby
  • Continuing to breastfeed after going back to work or school
