How Breastfeeding Works

Breastfeeding is a complex process that begins with achieving a proper latch, ensuring efficient milk transfer, and preventing discomfort. Breast milk production operates on a supply-and-demand basis, with frequent nursing stimulating milk production to meet the baby's needs. Oxytocin hormone release during breastfeeding triggers the milk ejection reflex, aiding milk flow. Breast milk consists of foremilk and hindmilk, providing essential nutrients and promoting satiety. Our certified lactation consultants at Inspira offer personalized support to help you navigate breastfeeding with confidence and assurance, ensuring both you and your baby thrive.
