| Breastfeeding Tip Tuesday - Breast Storage Capacity |

Imagine you and a friend are eating lunch. The waiter hands your friend an 8oz glass and you a 6oz glass. Your glass is obviously smaller. By the end of the lunch, you both have drank 24oz. Both of you met your hydration needs. You just needed more refills.

This is similar to how breast capacity works. If you have a smaller breast capacity (smaller glass), your baby will likely nurse more often (more frequent refills). That doesn't equate to you not meeting their needs!

If you have any lactation related questions or concerns, please give us a call!

¿Se puede producir DEMASIADA leche? 🤔

Pues sí, algunas mujeres padecen la HIPERPRODUCCIÓN de leche y, a pesar de que muchas otras sufren para producir más, lo cierto es que tener más leche de la necesaria también acarrea problemas.

👉 Pechos siempre llenos (con riesgo de osbtrucciones), duros y que gotean constantemente.
👉 El bebé puede estar irritable al pecho, rechazar tomas, atragantarse y tragar aire.
👉 Bebé con molestias intestinales.

¿Qué puede provocar la hiperproducción de leche?

👉 Hasta los 3 meses de edad, puede haber una sobreproducción fisiológica que se regula con el tiempo.
👉Un frenillo restrictivo. Sí, aunque la falta de una correcta estimulación por anquiloglosia puede reducir la producción, también puede ocurrir lo contrario: que se produzca, para compensar, más leche de la necesaria.
👉Si el pecho, debido a un mal agarre, restricción de tomas o anquiloglosia, no se vacía bien.

¿Cómo manejamos la hiperproducción de leche?
👉 Tratar de mejorar los síntomas con posturas, vaciamiento manual y ofreciendo un pecho por toma.
👉Técnica del reseto.
👉Lactancia en bloque.

(Sobre el manejo de la Sobreproducción de leche también ampliaremos este sábado 13 de noviembre en el curso de Asesoría en Lactancia Materna. ¡Todavía os podéis apuntar! [email protected])

Sometimes parents worry that breastfeeding supporters, helplines and lactation consultants are just all about supporting exclusive breastfeeding and positive experiences. This couldn't be further from the truth.

I would say that almost everyone I have spoken to who has any type of role in supporting breastfeeding is there because they found it tough. In fact some of the best supporters I know ended up mixed feeding or exclusively formula feeding before they were ready... and that is exactly why they are in the roles they are.

Even those who haven't used formula themselves often had some kind of challenge they had to overcome. They all understand how tough it is and how many challenges can arise... and how devastating it can feel not to be able to feed your baby in the way you wanted to.

My own experiences include babies who wouldn't sleep... who fed so frequently... who wouldn't take a bottle...unhelpful reactions from others ... inaccurate medical advice ...multiple occasions of mastitis (probably due to having too much milk which so many people just said was a great thing)...

I have friends who experienced tongue tie, insufficient glandular tissue, babies who wouldn't latch, babies losing too much weight, jaundice, thrush that wouldn't go away... so many stopped before they were ready. And many are now working in breastfeeding support.

People tend to end in these roles because they know what it's like to encounter problems, not get the support you need and feel devastated because of that. They're certainly not anti mixed feeding or formula - because they used it themselves (and are passionate supporters of women and families not feeding methods).

They'll give you support with adding in formula / weaning off formula / stopping breastfeeding / whatever you need. And most importantly know exactly how you might be feeling.

A topic parents are often wanting to discuss but uncomfortable asking about: Sex/Intimacy during parenting.

Whether you have a newborn, toddler, school age or teenager (or all of the options), making time to be intimate with your partner can be hard. Feelings of being touched out, worn down, or drained can truly put a damper on your s*x life and intimacy with a partner.

How have you found ways to carve out time?

📍
The umbilical cord contains 3 vessels.
📍
There are two arteries and one vein.
📍
A lot of people think it’s basically just a “tube” of sorts transporting nutrients to their baby. But, it’s so much more intricately designed than that!
📍
The vein carries oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood to your baby, and the arteries carry the deoxygenated blood, waste products (such as carbon dioxide), and nutrient-depleted blood through the placenta and into your bloodstream to dispose of.
📍
After delivery, these vessels close by themselves. The arteries close first due to their muscular walls.
📍
The umbilical vein follows closely behind, allowing oxygenated blood to return to your baby from the placenta.
📍
At birth, the placenta contains 1/3 of your baby’s blood volume.
📍
By delaying cord clamping for several minutes, you are allowing that blood to be transferred to your baby where it belongs via the umbilical vein.

What should I expect right after frenectomy?

Pain/soreness and refusal to eat (breast or bottle) is common within the first eight or so hours post release. Pain relief strategies and extra snuggles are super important. Sometimes an alternative feeding plan is needed if refusal persists for many hours.

How will breastfeeding go now?

Depending on how the breastfeeding relationship was immediately prior to the surgery, some babies may want to breastfeed for comfort while others feel frustrated by breastfeeding and opt to go on a short or prolonged nursing strike. Some babies actually have more feeding difficulties post tie release. For many babies, feeding doesn’t change at all post op. There are also babies for whom the surgery leads to improved latch and sucking skills post op without much additional effort on their parent’s part.

What does the surgery actually do?

The surgery releases the tethered oral tissues which increases *passive* range of motion (adult can move baby’s tongue so that it extends, elevates, and lateralizes / moves side to side movement) however baby may struggle with *active* range of motion where they do these movements in a more optimal way on their own. This can lead to disorganized movement or a lack of stability if baby’s tongue muscles still are not very strong or coordinated. Neuromuscular re-education must take place post release as babies re-learn to suck (hopefully in a more functional way). Some babies work this out on their own post release but many do not.

If breastfeeding still isn’t going well, who can help?
(For optimal results, have a team in place prior to surgery.)

Working with a Lactation Consultant who is well versed with oral ties is critical. Some babies also require feeding therapy using an oral sensory motor approach with an OT or SLP feeding therapist. Bodywork is important too since babies with oral ties often have asymmetry and tension throughout the body which impacts feeding since what is seen in the body is reflected in the mouth. The frenectomy is truly just one piece of the puzzle 🧩

Hola amigos:

Los "matas lactancias" están en todos lados. Nos tienen rodeados...

Tienen agentes infiltrados en todos los ámbitos, incluso ente los profesionales de salud.
Los hay entre las enfermeras, médicos generales, ginecólogos, pediatras, nutriólogos y entre los odontólogos también.

"¡Quítele el pecho a ese niño!", le ordenó la odontopediatra a mi paciente. "¡Qué no ve que ya tiene un año, se le van a picar los dientes y se le van a enchuecar todos!"

Eso no es cierto.

La lactancia materna no pica los dientes ni los enchueca.

Por suerte la mayoría de los odontólogos lo saben.

La leche materna tiene un factor de protección contra las caries, y aunque tiene lactosa, que es azúcar, con el agarre adecuado el niño recibe la leche atrás, en el paladar, y la deglute sin tener casi contacto con sus dientitos; lo que no sucede con el biberón.

Lo que pica los dientes es la falta de higiene, con o sin lactancia materna y es peor si le das al niño azúcares libres.

Los dientes del bebé deben lavarse desde que aparecen, y es tu odontopediatra quien mejor te dirá cómo y con qué. Pregúntale.

¡Saludos!

I’m often asked the question: “Do nursing parents need to pump in order to make enough milk?” The short answer is no. Effective breast pumps have been available for only about the past 70 years. Clearly humans have successfully nursed their babies for far longer. Also, how many of the thousand...

Sabías? Amamantar reduce el riesgo de padecer cáncer de mama.
.

“Posted @withregram • @pediatraymadre ¿Sabías que la lactancia materna disminuye el riesgo de padecer cáncer de mama?

Actualmente, cada vez es más amplia la bibliografía y estudios científicos que hablan sobre la reducción del riesgo de cáncer de mama gracias a la lactancia materna.

Desde el 2002, un estudio que incluyó 50mil casos de cáncer de mama de 47 estudio epidemiológicos, encontró que el riesgo relativo de padecer esta enfermedad en mujeres que han tenido hijos se reduce 4.3% por cada 12 meses que amamanta y 7% por cada parto.

En el 2013 un estudio reveló que el riesgo de padecer cáncer de mama era un 14% menor en mujeres que habían tenido hijos y los habían amamantado y de un 28% menor en mujeres que habían amamantado por más de 12 meses.

¿Cómo sucede? La lactancia materna se asocia con cambios hormonales y alteraciones en la histología molecular de la mama que pueden reducir el riesgo, además, tanto el embarazo como la lactancia disminuyen el número de ciclos menstruales de por vida, lo que reduce la exposición a hormonas específicas que están asociadas con un mayor riesgo de subtipos de cáncer de mama.

Aunque todavía existen algunas lagunas respecto al tema, la reducción del riesgo gracias a la lactancia están bien sustentadas y documentadas y esto da pie a que cada vez haya más investigaciones sobre los beneficios de la lactancia tanto en la madre como el bebé.
