Elizabeth began by telling me that she failed with breastfeeding her first 2 babies. 
 
 She said that with her first baby, by the time she came home from the hospital she was already formula feeding, was fine with this and never looked back.  That is, until she became pregnant for the second ti me. This time around she told herself that she was going to try harder.  You see, she was a mom now, who was connected with a large circle of mom friends she met at playgroups.  She told me that she tried hard not to stare at other moms when they were breastfeeding.  She did not want her curiosity and longing to be that mother, who was breastfeeding her own baby, to be mistaken for someone who would be perceived as looking down upon this mom who was nursing in public.  At the same time, she could not help but fantasize that she would soon join these other breastfeeding moms.  Her perception is that it looked so easy and why couldn't she be just like them.

What happens when moms are told they are going to have a difficult time breastfeeding or are told that they will not be able to breastfeed because they - either have flat nipples, inverted nipples, their breasts are too big or their babies mouth too small. Some times this information is even wrong.

we talk about what life was like In Talias  house as she tried to
get Henry to take the bottle, how her husband Lance tried to get Henry to take the bottle.  Talia said Henry was fine.  It was Lance that was getting all worked up and sweating profusely.
Mar 23, 2018
Talia and I get into a lot of fun conversations in our 25 minutes together.
One of my favorite topics t his show was talking about babies names.  Even though I did not know the sex of my baby, I called her the name I fell in love with
and people around me worried what would happen if I gave birth to a girl?  We were going to talk about Henry's skin condition but instead wound up talking about
Talia and her fears that her milk was toxic! We end with a funny story about her husband Lance and a slight accident he had in the 
middle of the night!

 You need to know what is normal weight loss for the first 4 days.  You need to learn what is normal weight gain the first 2 weeks and beyond.  New mothers need to know what babies act like when they are exhibiting normal newborn breastfeeding behavior.  You need to learn what normal output is.  So many times I hear parents tell me that their babies doctor is okay with several days of no stooling.  As long as the baby is peeing several times a day.  For my regular listeners I know I sound like a broken record.  We get new listeners every day to this show and I feel this bears repeating.  If your newborn baby is not stooling every day, this is a major concern.  Saying that it is okay is bad and inaccurate information, which can be very harmful to the mom and baby.

Andrea thought breastfeeding was going to be fairly easy.  And yet, she realized she did not know what she was doing and felt lost in the early days of learning about breastfeeding. She had a good friend who was a breastfeeding mom, explain to her all the details of early breastfeeding.  This happened before she had the baby and things were different once her baby was born.  The first few days in the hospital, it seemed to be going well

Your newborn will feed about 7-9 times a day. Let's go with 8
If each feeding takes about an hour, this would be average.
Between transferring milk at the breast, and diaper changes and burping and dressing, you can easily add on another 1/2 hour to each feeding sessions.

When your baby is latched on well, if there are no other medical or anatomical or supply issues, breastfeeding should not be hurting and your baby should be spending a majority of his time at breast nutritively sucking or what I also like to call power nursing.  You have also heard me say:  it is not so much of importance on how long they are at the breast, but it is also important to note what they are doing at the breast.  Is a majority of their time at the breast actively feeding with great interest or is most of the time spent in a sleepy, lackluster behavior.

Many families I work with have no idea that Depression can begin anytime during pregnancy or postpartum.  You may begin to feel anxious during your pregnancy.  Perhaps you felt find during pregnancy and the early months of postpartum. Things may be fine with you and then you begin feeling symptoms of depression when you baby is 8 months old.  For some moms, depression coincides when your baby weans.  read more

 I talked a lot about why you wanted to avoid getting too hooked into how long your baby was at the breast and that your focus should be more about how well your baby is latched on. My mantra for this weeks show is:  Watch the Baby, not the clock.

Tanya talks about her feelings about show business and acting.  She states that while she loves acting, she does not necessarily enjoy the business end of it.  Producing When the Bough Breaks was deeply and personally satisfying to her to be a part of such an important film.  She struggled with postpartum issues and feels strongly to educate the public about this issue.

What should your focus be on?  The latch of course. Because the early days of breastfeeding with regards to your milk supply and baby's well being, it is all about:  Is your baby able to come to the breast, achieve an excellent latch, transfer enough milk for a good feeding and this be pain free for you and comfortable for both of you.

Based on 2011 recommendations concerning influenza in the healthcare setting, mothers with influenza should temporarily not breastfeed their newborns; however, they can provide expressed breast milk to their newborns via a healthy caregiver.  Mothers with influenza can transmit the virus to their newborns when they are in close proximity to each other, such as when breastfeeding or bottle feeding. Lets talk about the facts.

First topics I want to cover is - The Scales -My general rule of thumb when it comes to this topic is:   Don't take the scales and the numbers too seriously, without weighing other important factors.
 
Their are 2 main reasons for this advise:
 
  1.  What scale is used can vary - first weight check, peds visit, visit with me
  2. What your baby is weighed in can vary -naked at birth, different diapers, cloth/disposable, outfit, onsie, hats, mittens socks
  3. disposable diaper is about half ounce.  cloth with wrap can be 4-6 oz.  short sleeve onsie - 3 oz,  long sleeve onsie with socks can be 7 oz

Engorgement is the swelling or congestion of body tissues.
When we are referring to breast engorgement, we are describing the painful swelling that occurs when the breasts become  very full and very firm.  Sometimes the breasts are actually hard and all these sensations lead to very painful breasts.  They can feel very heavy, sometimes throbbing, you noticed your skin is quite stretched and sometimes this fullness and firmness leads to your armpits.  Engorgement can affect one or both breasts.

There are actually quite a few reasons why you can struggle with early breastfeeding.  Here are some possible scenarios that you might find yourself dealing with a baby who is not breastfeeding well:
 
  1.  Probably the most common reason for a hard start is a premature birth.  When babies are born early it can make it more difficult for them to breastfeed.
  2. The reasons can be numerous so it is not helpful at this point to conjecture.  What we really want to do is say.. okay, this is the situation, now what do we do about it.
Jan 12, 2018
  1.  Your baby should have been gradually gaining back any weight loss from the first 4 days, until they were back to birthweight at 2 weeks old.
  2. Breastfeeding should not be painful for you.
  3. Your baby comes to the breast and feedings are comfortable for you.  You should not be experiencing any breast pain or nipple pain.
  1. When your baby is breastfeeding he should be relaxing at breast, focused on feeding, staying put and not coming on and off, multiple times during the feeding.
Your baby should be feeding about 8 times a day.  Perhaps it is 7 or perhaps it is 9 somewhere in there would be normal.

Your baby is now 4-5 days old.  You are just beginning to get the hang of breastfeeding. Sure you might feel awkward with it all, however, you are now getting use to a baby feeding at your breast 8 times a day. You are continuing to experiment with different positions to find which ones seem to work best for you and your baby.  In some places you will find you need to use a pillow and a stool. Other places where you breastfeed, your set up will be different
