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.

From the article:
Clearly, I do not fit the “Baby-Friendly” criteria, so does this make me and all moms who choose to formula feed, use pacifiers, and send their babies to the nursery horrible mothers? Does this mean we are not “Baby-Friendly” mommies? 403 hospitals across the United States might argue yes. I also quit breastfeeding and went the exclusively formula route after five days when I...

We need to start telling moms the truth: There is no “right” way to breastfeed…there is only your own unique way. We need to tell moms this from the moment they get pregnant to the moment they stop breastfeeding, whether that be at one week, one month, or one year. We need to drive home the point that breastfeeding looks different for every mom and every baby. We need to send them into that...

By the wee hours of the morning, I was the one waking her up to eat, not the other way around. In frustration I referred back to all of my breastfeeding resources, but they all clearly reiterated that nursing on demand was best, and that bottles and supplementation were to be avoided. They assured me jaundice was common in breastfed babies and that newborns were frequently “sleepy” at the...

But Mike's issues became clearer once they brought baby Monroe home.

He said: "I wasn't jealous of the baby taking Effie's attention away from me, I was jealous of the bond they had.

"When she would cry, I felt at the time she hated me I couldn't do anything to soothe her, look after her, but when she went to Effie she'd go quiet."

The pressure to breastfeed is everywhere, even the new AAP safe sleep guidelines touch on it. I encourage Moms everywhere to understand that “FED is best.” It’s not possible for every Mom to breastfeed for a variety of reasons, and that is perfectly fine.

If you are constantly concerned whether or not your child is getting enough milk, if there is any pain or unease while...
