We celebrate moms this week—breastfeeding moms, pumping moms, supplementing moms and formula feeding moms. This week is a great opportunity to talk about breastfeeding. But first, this week is also a great opportunity to talk about what happens when breastfeeding doesn’t go well. We see moms in our practice every day who struggle with breastfeeding for a variety of reasons—poor latch, insufficient supply, etc. Through all of the struggles, our primary priority is the health of you moms and your babies. We want your baby to be healthy and to grow! For those moms who struggle, we support you and encourage you to meet with our lactation consultants. Sometimes, however, breastfeeding is not best for mom or baby and we want you to know, that is OK too!

For those moms who do breastfeed, we think this week is a great opportunity to share some fun breastfeeding facts! We will share more all week!

  • Breastfeeding can reduce the risk of your baby developing many diseases in the future. It reduces the risk for obesity, high blood pressure, asthma, eczema and even diabetes!
