Foods You Can Eat When Breast Feeding

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

I was making hospital rounds today and talking to all of the new moms (and dads) about their newborns.  I love talking to new parents about the importance of having healthy meals to support breast feeding! I even had a young dad asking “what foods should I avoid cooking for my wife while breast feeding?”  How cute is that! Can we clone him?! (more…)

Lactose Intolerance

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

A parent emailed me via our iPhone App and asked if her child’s constipation, which started as he was transitioning from formula to whole milk, could be a sign of lactose intolerance. She is concerned because her son is now having very hard stools. (more…)

Breastfeeding Could Save 1.3 Million Lives

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Teaching new mothers how to breastfeed could save 1.3 million children’s lives every year, but many women get no help and give up trying, said the World Health Organization.

Less than 40 percent of mothers worldwide breastfeed their infants exclusively in the first six months, as recommended by the WHO. But many abandon it because they don’t know how to get their your-baby to latch on properly or suffer pain and discomfort. (more…)

Supporting Moms in Their Quest to Breastfeed

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

A recent article in Archives of Pediatrics reviewed pediatrician’s attitudes, knowledge and practices surrounding breastfeeding. They looked at surveys pediatricians completed in 1995 and 2004 and compared the results. It was interesting that in spite of increased knowledge and even personal experience with breastfeeding, pediatrician’s attitudes toward breastfeeding have deteriorated between 1995 and 2004.

Breastfeeding Needs Patience & Practice

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Those first several days home with a newborn can be very difficult and not exactly like the Gerber your-baby on TV. I typically see a newborn in my office several days after they are discharged from the hospital, so day four to six of life. That gives parents several days to have been home alone with their your-baby and then the questions begin. (more…)
