Other newsfeed from Breast milk is best, but only if you have breast milk.

Chronic sleep deprivation is not good for you. It leads to cognitive impairment, anger and irritability, anxiety, and even psychosis. Yes, you read that right. Chronic sleep deprivation is known to cause psychosis. Puerperal psychosis in new mothers is not common thankfully, but it is dangerous.

Did you know jaundice affects 60% of newborns, especially premature babies (earlier than 37 weeks) since their livers aren’t quite ready to keep up with the bilirubin they’re producing. Fortunately, infant jaundice is usually harmless and can be quickly resolved by consuming enough breast milk or formula. Eating and hydrating helps their livers turn the bilirubin into waste and expel it into...

A reader writes:
Just thought I would share this handout I was given after giving birth last month at a Baby Friendly Hospital despite advising the staff I would be combination feeding. And people wonder why mothers feel so much pressure to not formula feed despite maybe needing to to ensure their baby's development. This handout might as well say you're feeding your baby rat poison and he...

"Which brings me to my final major issue with the BFHI: not all babies benefit from being breastfed entirely or only exclusively after birth. Breastfeeding-only proponents would have you believe that all mothers are able to produce breastmilk at the outset, without any complications. This is patently not true. One only has to glance down the breastfeeding aisle at Babies R Us replete with...

We have not been able to keep up with stories sent to us since baby Landon's story was posted. We have learned of more tragic infant feeding stories and all of them could have been prevented! We do want mothers to know that breastfeeding IS safe---if a mother is producing enough colostrum and breast milk.
*The truth is we do not have enough research that tells us how many mothers are at...

Thanks to your site I didn’t think twice about saying yes to formula when they suggested it for one feeding to bring his blood sugar back up. I continued to try to breastfeed after that and the 2nd night in the hospital he kept us up all night cluster feeding. The Lactation consultant told us that his blood sugar was now measuring fine and I was producing colostrum and there was no medical...

I didn't want to breastfeed. There, I said it. I just didn't want to do it.

How could I be expected to nurture a child from the same breasts that society had sexualised time and time again? The very idea made me feel wrong, icky even. Then there was the public perception of it all. There seems to be pressure that you have to breastfeed, and then stigma that you shouldn't do it in public.

I...

First of all, contrary to what you might think, I don't hate breastfeeding. I honestly loved it, especially once I figured things out and stopped trying to attain the impossible goal of exclusive breastfeeding. Feeding my oldest son formula actually helped me breastfeed longer. For me and for many other parents, formula feeding and breastfeeding are not mutually exclusive. I support you in...

Postpartum depression and anxiety is much more common than you might think and can occur anytime during the first postpartum year. One out of every 7 women who gives birth experiences symptoms of a clinical depression that requires treatment. While there is no single cause for postpartum depression, it likely results from a combination of biological (your brain and body), genetic (your family...

Call it what you will –- mommy martyrdom, toxic assumptions, overwhelming nursing pressure –- but the mentality I carried with me at all times was, I must make this breastfeeding thing work.

I tried. Oh, how I tried. The routine we created was unsustainable: every 2 hours, every single day, morning noon and night, I would strap a pump to my chest and get as much out as possible while someone...

Bottom line: families can help protect their babies from infection in many ways. Sick people should be kept away from newborns. Moms should get their own recommended vaccines. Nursing can help (though in the developed world, the impact of nursing on infections is modest.) And babies should get their own vaccines, as recommended, on schedule, to get the best possible protection.

This February, California mother Jillian Johnson’s story went viral when she posted on the blog Fed Is Best that her son, Landon, died of hypernatremic dehydration when he was 17 days old because, she believes, she followed doctors’ orders at a Baby-Friendly hospital to breast-feed exclusively.
