Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, [email protected]

Q:What is a bottle doing in a breastfeeding picture??
A:It is helping to expand the conversation around breastmilk.
Long before formula was invented, mothers who could not or would not breastfeed their Sweet Peas sought out other nursing mothers to feed their children. Before bottles were invented, they got it straight from the source: hence the name "wet nurse".
One such biblical example is the Princess of Egypt searching out a wet nurse for the baby she rescued from the reeds.
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.
