Booby Food | Janna Hattingh | Breastmilk Nutrition Expert on Instagram: "Comment “DATES” for our fav recipe? 👇🏻

A 2021 study in Breastfeeding Medicine revealed mothers who consumed 10 dates/day for one month increased their breastmilk by 11% in the first 2 weeks and 23% in week 4 compared to mothers who didn’t consume any dates. 

Dang, those are pretty significant numbers!!

What else can dates do? 

Consuming dates during late pregnancy was effective in decreasing length of labor processes and reduced the need of (synthetic) oxytocin for labor acceleration… I knowwww, I knowwww….I can hear you saying, “where was this information when I was pregnant?!” (I was 4 days late and had a 59 hour labor with my 1st and was 15 days late had a 10 hour labor with my 2nd, this hits home for

Tracy Gillett, Founder of Raised Good on Instagram: "New mothers are encouraged to breastfeed but at the same time warned not to bedshare.

Breastfeeding mothers know that babies fall asleep easily at the breast, so this advice is not only impractical, but it also sets mothers up for breastfeeding failure…and it is potentially dangerous. Why?

Imagine a new mother to a two-month old baby who feels terrified of the “dangers” of bedsharing. She’s seen the ads with butcher’s knives in beds, she’s read the AAP guidelines, her mother-in-law bought her a crib and painted the baby’s room with non-toxic paint, all her friends are sleep training and she wants to do the ‘right’ thing.

She is also committed to exclusively breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months and her baby - like all babies -

Ready? Let’s go! 

I refer to this position as Elevated Side Lying. I love it because it provides baby’s body with stability and comfort, while also allowing them to be in complete control of the liquid in the bottle nipple. Parent has a clear view of baby so they can respond to cues accordingly. 

This bottle is the Evenflo Balance by @evenflofeeding. It’s easy to clean, doesn’t have a ton of parts, flow rates are appropriate, and the shape of the nipple promotes an ideal latch for good muscle function and a tight seal. 

This baby is on a slow flow nipple. I like a baby to be on a nipple flow rate that is “just right”. Not too fast. Not too slow. Some older babies might benefit fro

Caitlin Wilder on Instagram: "NORMAL PUMPED MILK AMOUNTS!!!!

Please enjoy my song dedicated to normal (per the dictionary that means average/standard/expected) pump amounts. 

Per La Leche League- 

🍼 if you mostly nurse, getting .5 - 2 oz COMBINED TOTAL per pump session is normal! 

🍼 if you are an EP, getting 2.5 - 5oz COMBINED TOTAL per pump session is normal! 

You do not need to pump 10oz a session. 

You do not need to "create a stash" or fill your freezer. 

You do not need to be passively collecting milk while you nurse. 

You do not need to have an overflowing pitcher of milk in your fridge. 

(You can do these things if you want though!)

But those gosh darn influencers with their oversupply will have you feeling differently! Ignore them!

“Freezing keeps your food safe almost indefinitely” (on the BM Storage Guideline page of the CDC’s guidelines). 

Recommended storage times are for best quality - meaning - Your breastmilk doesn’t go “bad” or “expire” after 12m; it’s just not as plentiful in nutrients as freshly expressed. 

Why are you throwing out your liquid gold but keeping the 3-year-old bag of frozen peas?

MotherCove on Instagram: "THESE MISTAKES CAN AFFECT YOUR JOURNEY🍼⤵️

Despite my countless efforts trying to get an oversupply, i’ve learned that avoiding these mistakes has been the key to my success.

1. Skip night pumps

2. No longer then 3h without pumping

3. Stress/Worry about the amount you are going to pump or already pumped (This triggers oxytocin) 

4. Don’t pump with a random setting (you have to find what setting works for you) 

5. Dont limit your protein intake! 

I’ve eliminated all of these steps throughout my pumping journey and realized this is what was stopping me from getting an oversupply. 

I want to help other moms, so I have written the Super Mom eBook, where I share secrets to boosting your milk supply from personal experience!

BOOBIE* Superfoods on Instagram: "Only TWO hormones in your brain directly make milk: prolactin and oxytocin. Want more milk from Oxytocin? 1. Adding 1 Extra Feeding to your current routine will help. Even a 5-7 minute feeding from a baby who is an experienced breastfeeder will help you increase your supply. 2. Exclusive Pumpers? The same applies to you. I wrote a blog, “When is the Best Time to Pump to Increase Milk Supply?” to help moms who pump make more milk. (Click and link in our bio to learn more) 3. Go TOPLESS!

Twiddling is when a baby or toddler reaches over to the opposite nipple that they’re feeding on and they twist, pull and maybe pinch the nipple to their heart’s content while you are slowly pushed to the brink of insanity. Older babies naturally begin to “twiddle” the other nipple and physiologically, it can help to elicit the release of the hormone oxytocin, which is responsible for letdown.

Milky Mama® Breastfeeding Help | RN, IBCLC on Instagram: "How amazing are our bodies? Did you know this? 

Breastmilk has antibacterial and antiviral elements. Depending on how long you breastfeed, you’ll be lowering your baby’s risk of contracting colds and flu, ear and respiratory tract infections, sickness, and diarrhea. Scientists are even investigating breast milk’s potential for treating conditions ranging from conjunctivitis to cancer. 

Let’s not forget all the data out there showing the many protective elements found in breastmilk, whether your baby is currently sick or not. The bottom line is that if your baby is sick, breastmilk is one of the best ways to help them fight their illness.
