Living happily ever after
by Norma Ritter, IBCLC, RLC, LLLL
In many ways, pregnancy is like a fairy tale. It is very common for pregnant women to believe that they need to prepare only for the actual birth of their babies, and everything after that will fall into place by itself. Indeed, most women find it very difficult to even conceive (pardon the pun!) of what life will be like after their baby arrives, except in the most general terms. Even when women have friends or family with newborns, have been reading books and taking courses in baby care, the actual birth remains the focus.

KellyMom is sponsored this month by Freemie, the hands free pumping system, who has graciously helped pay our costs this month.
