More than any other part of having a baby, new moms always have a million questions about breastfeeding. How long should I breast feed? Is it OK to supplement with formula? What do I do if the baby won’t feed? What local resources are available to me?

Check out the video to find out how long you should plan on breastfeeding, when it’s OK to work in formula and even get some advice on finding local lactation consultants and support.
