This visual is brilliant!
Being a visual learner, I have always done better with a picture! When I saw Katie’s infographic on Facebook (from Babies First Lactation) it was my hope that lots of people (Moms, Dads, and extended family members) could gain understanding from it. The La Leche League also has a valuable visual here.
