Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, [email protected]
@bs & Babies
I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Nils Bergman speak last summer. He is the director of NINO Birth, which stands for "Neuroscience for Improved Neonatal Outcomes."
He is doing research and connecting the dots between other researchers' work that confirms a mother's instinctual need to keep her baby with her. Based on his observations of birthing mammals, Dr. Bradley came to the same conclusion: the best things for baby is to be skin-to-skin on the mother's chest, and the best food for infants is breastmilk.
Here is a collection of information for a mom who wants to increase her milk supply. This post is dedicated to M.F., a new mama who is as sweet as can be and who wants to do the very best for her baby, including pumping for him while she is at work. Do you have any tips to share with her to help her keep her supply up, or how to successfully balance working out of the home and breastfeeding, or anything else that is on your heart or mind?
She is already off to a great start by making the most of their time together wearing him in her wrap… please write her a note in the comments.
