This! Is! It!

I've been rocking and cuddling my baby to sleep since that day he was born. I mentioned this to a nurse at my clinic recently. She said that she did the same thing with her son, and everyone warned her that she would still have a teenager sleeping in her bed. And then she told me that, a few weeks ago, her teenage son came home from school very upset. He didn't want to talk, and just went to his room and listened to his music, typed on his phone and cried. The mother gave her son space, and night time came and she went to bed. Just as she was about to turn off her side light, the door opened, and her 15 year old padded into the room. He climbed into the bed with her, laid his head on her shoulder and cried.
He told her all about the girl that broke his heart, all about the friends who laughed, all about the stresses of being him. She told him about her first broken heart, about friends who'd been cruel, and told him she understands. They talked in the dark for hours, until he feel asleep in her bed. Still sad but relieved after their talk.
'So you see' she said to me, when she finished the story. 'I was so scared that I wound wind up with a teenager who would 'need me' at night, that I never stopped to consider how beautiful that would really be.' 🌟

Forcing mothers to cover up while nursing is culturally orchestrated sabotage. NORMALIZE NURSING IN PUBLIC.

This is a wonderful attempt to get Lactation care covered by Medicaid. This would definitely change so much.

Formula feeding is a risk in emergency situations. During any disaster breastfeeding is protective and safe.

Formula feeding is a risk in emergency situations. During any disaster breastfeeding is protective and safe.

Breastfeeding *can* happen during an emergency, like wildfire season. Human milk contains antibodies that fight infection, including diarrhea and respiratory infections common among infants in emergency situations. Learn more: https://t.co/RomVmxK6i9 #IYCFE

Wildflower Breastfeeding

Wildflower Breastfeeding

When a baby nurses at its mother's breast, a vacuum is created. Within that vacuum, the infant's saliva is sucked back into the mother's nipple, where receptors in her mammary gland read its signals. This "baby spit backwash” contains information about the baby's immune status. Then mother’s breast milk adjusts its immunological composition accordingly!

If the mammary gland receptors detect the presence of pathogens, they compel the mother's body to produce antibodies to fight it, and those antibodies travel through breast milk back into the baby's body, where they target the infection.

Take note! D is so important

Vitamin D is a hormone that is important beyond bone health. It also plays a role in maintaining a strong immune system, lowering inflammation and chronic disease.
.
Vitamin D deficiency is common worldwide though prevalence varies substantially depending on geography, race and time of year.
.
An infant's vitamin D is acquired from their mother either during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. If mom's levels are low than infants will be low unless they are getting adequate sunlight exposure.
.
Given vitamin D is important both for mothers' and infants' health, studies look at correcting maternal vitamin D levels as a means to address infant vitamin d deficiency.
.
A recent study in Breastfeeding Medicine journal by Malhotra et al studied 132 exclusively breastfed infants and their mothers in India who were randomized into two groups.
The mothers in one group received a placebo while the mothers in the intervention group received high dose vitamin D (60,000 IU) postpartum and at 6,10 and 14 weeks when the infants were receiving their vaccines. The dosing averaged to a daily dose of 2,449 IU.
.
At enrollment, 90.4% of mothers and 88.6% of infants were vitamin D deficient (levels

If any mom's in need have a Freemie pump, I have an unopened box from the company with extra cups and lines I'd like to donate! If you haven't tried a Freemie and have a job where privacy is an issue (perfect for the office!) I'll even throw in the manual pump handle
