Are you a breastfeeding mom who is dreading the transition to solid foods?

If you’re nervous about making the switch from breastfeeding to baby-led weaning, do NOT worry: you can do both SUCCESSFULLY and Krystal Duhaney, RN, IBCLC from @milkymamallc is here to show you how!

In this episode, Krystal is breaking down some tips for transitioning to solid foods while also keeping your breastfeeding game STRONG. She’s talking about the “breast sandwich” to help protect your milk supply and why milk supply tends to drop when you start solid foods (but how you can fight to keep it up!)

We’re also chatting about how to schedule your breastfeeding sessions once you start baby-led weaning. Things change in your breastfeeding journey when you are just starting to introduce food at 6 months, once your baby gets going with eating solid foods, and then when you reach the one-year mark...and Krystal is going to help you succeed every step of the way!
