    By Dana Sullivan


    You can't really prepare your breasts for breastfeeding, but you can prepare your head. Before your baby is born, learn as much about breastfeeding as possible. Start by taking a class at your hospital or birth center, or reading pamphlets from your physician. The more information you have about nursing before you begin, the more confident you'll feel about it once you start.

Simply put: the more confident and comfortable you are, the more relaxed you are, the easier it is for you to produce milk.

    Emotional and Physical Comfort for Expectant Moms



    By Maria Bailey


    Pregnancy can be a beautiful and magical time; the beginning of a remarkable journey. It can also, however, be a restless and uncomfortable time, especially during the third trimester.


    A recent survey of nearly 500 pregnant women conducted by BlueSuitMom.com and Nestlé® Good Start® Supreme, revealed that three out of four of pregnant women are in discomfort because they cannot get a good night's rest.

    Traveling For Two


    Some women get such strong nesting instincts during pregnancy that they're happy to stay home, clean house and redecorate. Others feel the urge to see the world. After all, especially if it's a first child, this may be the last chance for awhile to take a trip unencumbered by diapers, wipes and a stroller. If you fall into the second group, the good news is that most obstetricians say there's no reason most women can't travel during a healthy pregnancy.

    Some women get such strong nesting instincts during pregnancy that they're happy to stay home, clean house and redecorate. Others feel the urge to see the world. After all, especially if it's a first child, this may be the last chance for awhile to take a trip unencumbered by diapers, wipes and a stroller. If you fall into the second group, the good news is that most obstetricians say there's no reason most women can't travel during a healthy pregnancy.
