For almost 20 years women have been offering breastfeeding help to one another in an online capacity. In this time, the technological tools at our disposal have changed rapidly and now there are more ways than ever before to seek valuable support. It is essential for all who provide support for nursing moms to know that today's mothers, the Generation X and Millennial moms, are online and comfortable seeking answers to their health related concerns in these arenas. Knowing how and where to reach mothers, can help today's lactation professionals better serve the mothers who come to them for support, by offering them reliable, evidence-based information in ways that they are comfortable with accessing.
