How do I encourage my baby to latch? My baby seems to prefer one side, is this normal? How long do I let my baby feed? Ask these and many more questions to Dana, Tinyhood's Lactation Consultant.

Latching is really difficult on my right side. Could it be how I am holding the baby? I started using a nipple shield and that has helped but it's kind of a pain to use. Do you have any suggestions?
How do I produce more milk for my baby?
Hi, Keir -- Milk production is commonly described as a "supply and demand" process. But really, it's "demand and supply." What I mean by this is that the first step to getting more milk out of your body is to make your body aware that it needs to produce more milk.Nursing or pumping frequently is important because it sends a message to your body that you need more. For most breastfeeding moms, this means either nursing or pumping every two to three hours. Truly, this really is the best way to boost supply!
