Continuing to Nurse Your Baby Through Coronavirus (2019-nCoV; COVID-19) and Other Respiratory Infections | La Leche League International

The novel coronavirus/COVID-19 global pandemic is a developing public health concern for all of us in the United States. The health and safety of Leaders and the families we all serve are LLL USA's top priorities. Leaders are concerned about how best to address this situation and whether to consider canceling their meetings or special events.

The following reliable information from LLLI and the CDC can be referenced to help you as Leaders and families you support:
LLLI - https://www.llli.org/coronavirus/
LLL USA Facebook post - over 5,000 shares

Highlights from these sources include:
- The nursing parent with the illness should continue to nurse.
- Coronavirus does not pass into the breastmilk.
- The virus does not affect children and infants as acutely as older people.

Breastfeeding mothers are getting a tax break

Just FYI

Nursing mothers are getting a new tax break from the IRS-- which puts breast pumps and other supplies on the list of tax-deductible items. The 2010 decision comes after years of pressure from nursing advocates like the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Please fill out this survey if it applies to you. Thank you!

Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York is conducting Round Two of their study exploring where mothers find support for breastfeeding their toddlers.

If you did not fill out this survey last year, and if you have ever breastfed a child beyond a year (no matter how long ago that was), please do so now. Your input will help us better understand where mothers get the support they need.

To complete this anonymous questionnaire and if you did not complete this survey last year, go to www.BreastfeedingToddlers.org.

Please note that the questionnaire will only take 7 - 10 minutes.

If you find our page and the questionnaire interesting and useful, we would encourage you to direct other mothers to this page by adding the following hashtag, #breastfeedingtoddlers, to the end of any of your own posts you add to your own page concerning Breastfeeding Toddlers and our questionnaire.

Love it!

Good to know!

Since we can't see the ounces that are transferred to baby during a feeding, moms might question if baby truly is getting enough. A good way to know if a breastfed baby is eating enough is by checking his or her diaper!

Good information for a question we get all of the time. :-)

LLLI | FAQ: When Will My Baby Sleep Through the Night?

Good information for a question we get all of the time. :-)

Just as you can't know when your baby will first smile or start to talk or decide to give up morning naps, there's no way to predict when your baby will sleep through the night. More importantly, there's no "right age" at which your baby should. As with any developmental milestone, your baby may be…

Did you know this helpful tip? Often times a nursing mother is concerned if baby is receiving enough milk because you simply can't see the ounce lines disappear from a breast. ;) Here's something you can look for!

LLLI | What are the LLLI guidelines for storing my pumped milk?

This is good to know!

Your milk is a living substance so precious some call it "white blood". It is essential to store your expressed (pumped) milk properly to maximize its nutritional and anti-infective qualities. Human milk actually has anti-bacterial properties that help it to stay fresh. Giving your baby the freshest...

Are there any in person meetings happening yet??
Used copy of 1st edition of Adventures in Tandem Nursing is available for free if you can pick it up. PM me.
Does anyone know of any other breastfeeding groups in the Fredericksburg/ Stafford area? I’d like to find something so I can go more than once a month. 🖤🖤
I have a mother who is in need of Alimentum formula. Does anyone have any they can donate? I can pick it up and deliver it to her.
Hi! When are the meetings? I have a 3 month old with special needs that finally latched (although not super well). I'd love to attend a meeting, more likely after my big kids start back at school.
It is that time a of year again, come join us at the Fredericksburg's Fall Fairy Festival September 29th, 2018 from noon until 5 pm https://www.fredfairyfestival.com. This year it is being held at the Fredericksburg Agricultural Fairgrounds.
Hello All! Looking for recommendations for a pediatrician in Fredericksburg, please. Ezekiel was born premature and is struggling with acid reflux. We have had bad luck with the Pedsplus on Cowan Blvd. and are now looking for options. Would like to find dr. that has preemie experience and supports breastfeeding. Any information is appreciated! :)
Question ladies. My LO is 16 months and I’m looking to put her in shoes. Where do I go to size her? I have some shoes but I’m not sure they fit her. Thank you for your help
Help! My supply is essentially gone. Just left the lactation consultant at the hospital here and John nursed and only got 20ml (30 ml is an ounce) total from both breasts. They had me pump right after and I only produced MAYBE 10ml more I need my supply back now that I have the breastfeeding support my pediatrician didn't offer (in a nutshell she gave me formula when I mentioned John was gassy and fussy saying it could be a milk allergy. It's not - he's just fussy it seems...). I'll be supplementing with my freezer stash for now and nursing and pumping every chance I get. What else can I do??
Hi. My doctor gave us alimentum formula to try in case my son has a milk allergy. We've been using it for a day but I'm not ready to end my breast feeding time yet. Do you suggest I give the formula or nurse while eliminating dairy?
Hey LLL leaders! I have a friend who just began her breastfeeding relationship. I have tried to give her some support but I would love to put her in touch with one of you and she doesn't use Facebook. Thanks!
Motherhood Maternity has a clearance event going on buy one get one 50 off and a sale on nursing tanks. There were some cute Jessica Simpson long sleeve nursing shirts on sale.
