The palate is located in the roof of the mouth.  It separates the oral and nasal cavities and provides stability to the facial structures.

Once babies are rolling in and out of this position, we really do want them changing positions in their sleep and  multiple times a night. 
Once they roll from back to belly, let them sleep into the position that they get themselves in and out of.

Today, I would like to get you thinking about your return to work. The best time to plan for this is, yes, during your pregnancy. Taking action now, will help to relieve some of the pressure that you could be under when the calendar tells you that your time for staying home is up.

Almost every mother I see with this condition has never had a conversation with her provider about the risk factors associated with low supply. Therefore, this does not lead them to any further conversation about the need for close follow up and a referral to a lactation specialist so they can be closely followed up once their baby is born.

Today we will be talking about how you can best speak to your employer about breastfeeding/pumping when you return to work.  My goal is to have you thinking and planning for your return to work, long before you complete your maternity leave.  We will cover the most concerns moms have when pumping at work.  They are:  1.  Finding the appropriate place to pump, and 2.  Finding the time to pump during your work day.
