MilkWorks Breastfeeding Information Center

Check out our Breastfeeding Tip Tuesdays on Facebook! Each week we'll feature a topic in our Breastfeeding Information Center.

Welcome! This information has been compiled by MilkWorks to provide basic breastfeeding information. It is based upon our many years of working with breastfeeding mothers, as well as the latest research on breastfeeding.

Because breastfeeding is a unique experience for each mother and baby, many mothers and babies benefit from individual breastfeeding assistance.  

If you are a breastfeeding mother who is concerned about how your baby is breastfeeding, and the information below does not resolve your concerns, we recommend you seek help from a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). You are welcome to contact MilkWorks in Lincoln at 402-423-6402 or MilkWorks O in Omaha at 402-502-0617 to schedule an appointment. Read more about our consultation services.

If you are concerned about the immediate health of you or your baby, please consult your physician or seek emergency medical treatment by calling 911.
