Supplementing to Exclusive Breastfeeding

 After approximately 2 weeks after delivering my daughter I started having breastfeeding complications. I was in so much pain that I just couldn't have her on my breasts, I had to start giving her the bottle. Following the recommendation I received from a lactation consultant, I rented a hospital grade breast pump to keep my supply until I was ready to breastfeed again.…

A Back To Work Breastfeeding Bag

My lovely maternity leave came to an end this week.  The evening before I realized I had a whole new bag of goodies to lug with me back and forth on work days:  my breast pump and its accessories.  As I was packing up my bag I thought it may be a good list to include for any new moms returning to work or moms needing to take their breast pumping on the road.  Here is a list of items that I included in my bag:

  1. Pump, Cones and Pump Bottles
  2. Freezer Storage Bags for Pumped…

Breast Feeding and Business Travel

I’m on a business trip in Colorado all this week. I can tell you that this trip is a heck of lot easier than it was just six months ago. Back then, I was still nursing D2 and the thought of how I was going to continue my milk supply while on a week long business trip turned my stomach into knots. Unless you can travel with your LO, business travel and breastfeeding…

When will the boob sucking end?!!

I am all about breastfeeding. My first child I breastfed for a year. My second I only did it for about a month. (I really regret that but I suffered from post partum depression and never even wanted to get out of bed, let alone feed my baby. Thank God for my husband and mother in law!) My third I was able to nurse for about 17 months. I finally gave up because I was pregnant with my fourth, and well, just exhausted from everything.



So now I am proudly breastfeeding my fourth, going… Continue

Creating a Positive, Empowering & Mother-Friendly Breastfeeding Community

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.

So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…

Breast-Feeding: Not Just for Women?

http://healthland.time.com/2010/10/08/breastfeeding-not-just-for-women/#more-11922



I grew up hearing from my dad that a woman can do anything a man can do. Now, as a parent, I try to impart that same wisdom to my own two girls. Still, biologically, there are some things gals can do that guys can't — breast-feed, for one.… Continue

Obnoxious Comments and Clever Responses: Breastfeeding Edition

We have all heard them, the obnoxious comments and “wise” sayings of

others intending to “instruct” or “help” breastfeeding moms with the act

of breastfeeding.” Whether it be from a well-intended family member or a

questionably “interested” stranger, these comments are usually based on

some past knowledge or personal experience, from so-and-so mother that

they knew, or mother that someone else knew.



They are usually said with such assurance that breastfeeding… Continue

We Attended the World Breastfeeding Challenge

When I heard about the World Breastfeeding Challenge, scheduled for October 3, I immediately knew I wanted to go. I’m up for a challenge! All over the world mothers would unite and latch on their children at the same time — what a great idea to promote breastfeeding! So Landon and I drove to the White Plains, New York, location, which was Full Circle Family Care. I told him there would be a lot of babies, and since he loves babies, he was all exited.



I was proudly sporting my “Yes,… Continue

Childbirth Drugs Can Affect Breastfeeding Success

Do you know many women who have breastfed their babies from birth?



A British study researched the link between medication given to women to prevent hemorrhaging after childbirth and breastfeeding rates for those women.



The drug oxytocin is commonly given to women after childbirth to prevent severe blood loss (>500 mL in 24 hrs.) known as postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). This can lead to fainting or severe anemia.



After a vaginal birth, the mother’s body must… Continue

Give 'em the Boob!

Remember that infamous Super Bowl, the one with the half-time boob show? Now this post isn't about flashing "Janet-style" (Miss Jackson if you're nasty) although she may have been on to something. I'm talking about how much simpler life would be if we could just nurse our babies through high school. I was reminiscing with one of my close girlfriends today about breast feeding our sweet babies and how they're growing up too quickly. It was so much easier to "parent" my girls when I was nursing… Continue

Give'Em the Boob

No, I'm not talking Janet-style (Miss Jackson if you're nasty) although she may have been on to something. I'm talking about how much simpler life would be if we could just nurse our babies through high school. I was reminiscing with one of my close girlfriends today about breast feeding our sweet babies and how they're growing up too quickly. It was so much easier to "parent" my girls when I was nursing them. If they fell down and got a boo-boo, couldn't sleep, were having a bad day, got a… Continue

Breast is Best

If you’re a mom, you have more than likely heard the above statement.

And as a mom you’ve made a choice, to either breastfeed/ebf or formula feed. Now granted, I believe breastmilk is the best food for baby. It’s how God engineered feeding to be. He created boobs, not formula, BUT I don’t believe this makes formula a wrong choice.

I entered the mothering world thinking that there was a right choice and a wrong choice in feeding. But that’s just not how it is. Formula… Continue
