This week I talk about being a new mom who’s made the decision to breastfeed.  Even though there are a ton of books that have been written on the subject and a wealth of advice and knowledge that comes to new moms from family and friends, I find that there are still some basic questions that go unanswered.  A wonderful resource for all breastfeeding questions is La Leche League

Thank you for visiting the site and for listening to the show.  You questions, comments and show ideas are always appreciated.

    Definitely an important topic! I never prepped myself for nursing, but I did use Lansinoh at the beginning of nursing the boys. “Soothies” by Gerber are also amazingly awesome for sore nipple relief. Tate had thrush a lot, Coby didn’t & Jake had it a few times. One thing I noticed is that they couldn’t stay latched on when they had thrush. They would “pop on and off” when nursing. That was a good indicator. I highly recommend Nystatin prescription med. for thrush for baby & Diflucan pill for mom. Wash bras in hot water & hang out to dry in the sun- the UV rays kill thrush. & boiling any pacifiers/ bottle nipples. Thrush is a pest, but easily taken care of fortunately! One other thing I thought of was that (for me anyway) the let down reflex can be pretty painful initially; some new moms might wonder about that. I also found that the first 3-6 weeks of nursing are just really tough, but if you stick with it, it gets easier & more comfortable. Those initial weeks are rough though, no doubt about it! Amazing how something so natural is really pretty complex!
