Key Concerns for New Moms

babyClare Bloomfield /

Playtex recently sponsored a survey that identified key concerns among first time moms. Examples of the survey results include:

  • Top Troubles: Nearly half of first-time moms (49 percent) cited gas as their top feeding problem, followed by difficulty breastfeeding (37 percent), fussiness or difficulty feeding (33 percent) and problems latching or sucking (32 percent).

  • Full of Concern: The majority of moms surveyed (70 percent) share a common concern that their baby is eating enough during feedings.

  • Hungry for Help: Moms are searching for answers and validation as they become feeding “experts” for their own baby. More than half of survey respondents (56 percent) ask feeding-related questions during their regular pediatrician appointments; with more than one in four (26 percent) doing so at every visit.

Congrats to the winner! Hey - was entering giveaways and saw your comments aren't numbered. Mine weren't for a while and it made counting out the winner a PAIN. I used this tutorial to edit my HTML code - only steps 1 and 2 since I didn't care for the bubble-style comments. Not trying to be bossy - just thought it might help you out :)
