Katy and I began today's show talking about the need to educate the public about the basics of breastfeeding.  We agreed that it is more than likely the lack of knowledge about how breastfeeding works rather than judgments that gets in the way of the public having patience and tolerance for the breastfeeding mother.  You do you.  I am going to worry about me and let's just be kind and supportive of each other.

Stacy tells me that she has a lot of friends who are breastfeeding and decided she really want to have this experience with her baby.   Stacy tells me that she exclusively breastfed her new baby, Alex and 8 lb 1 oz boy during her 2 days hospital stay.  She was told the latch was good, although Stacy complained that it was pinching her a lot.  Everyone agreed that baby seemed happy at breast and content after most feedings.  A few hours before discharge, she was given news that upset her greatly.  Her baby Luke had lost 10 oz and that was way too much weight loss.  Stacy said that she felt like her world was crashing down around her as she had flashbacks to her first baby.

Very simply put, the way medications are passed on to the baby during pregnancy and during lactation differ.  The gestational age and doseage during pregnancy is taken into consideration.  The infants age and doseage is considered during lactation.  At one point, your baby may be old enough to handle a certain medication taken at a certain doseage and for a period of time.  However, the same medication, duration and dose would not be safe as it crosses the placenta and affects the baby more actively in utero.

 Amy is from Massapequa, Long Island, which is in New York.  Which was a huge and wonderful surprise to Lori as she also grew up in Massapequa.  We grew up about 10 minutes from each other!  We had fun going down memory lane for a few minutes before carrying on with the rest of the show.   We talked about what the culture was like in the 1950s and 1960s for our mothers and the reasons they did not breastfeed, which were for similar reasons. Amy left Massapequa to go to college, then lived in New York City, until moving to Sweden in 2000
