Issues Every Mom Should Consider Prior to Birth

There is no doubt that welcoming your baby into the world will be one of the most magical points in your life, whether you conceived the little one yourself or if you had the help of a good Samaritan donating eggs, but you do need to be prepared before he or she arrives. Before your baby arrives, you may wish to consider how long you would like to breastfeed, when and how you would like to wean them, and if you are going to vaccinate. When it comes to feeding your baby, there is no doubt that breast is best. However, many mothers find that they have a hard time deciding when to stop and where they feel comfortable with feeding.
