Common Concerns
Breastfeeding can have its challenges, but don't let a bump in the road stop you from
meeting your breastfeeding goals.

If you need immediate help please contact an IBCLC or other lactation support person in
your area.  These people can be found in the Kentucky Breastfeeding Resource Guide.

The information below answers many common questions about breastfeeding.  Most of the
