"When my baby was about 30 hours old, breastfeeding was still not going well and she cried often so I asked the IBCLC to return even though the only time she could come was during quiet hours. Since the baby had fed often the previous evening, the IBCLC thought the baby had been “cluster feeding.” Since the baby’s latch was still poor, I was concerned about how much milk the baby was...

The researchers also found that in response to pregnancy hormones, the mammary glands of mice that had been pregnant before also grew more treelike branches of milk-moving ducts than mice who had not been pregnant before. Those results may help explain why some women make more milk for their second kid, an observation that’s backed up by a 2001 Lancet study of 22 mothers. One week after...
