Remember when it felt like you had two boulders full of milk on your chest?

And if the baby let go while nursing, you'd laugh as the milk sprayed everywhere?

But now things have changed. No more leaking, your breasts don't feel “full” anymore, and your baby's behaviour is changing too.

Babies wake up at night and that's ok! We expect newborns to wake to be fed because their tummies are tiny.

Instead of asking new parents, "Is the baby sleeping through night?" let's ask instead, "Is the baby waking and feeding well at night?"

A famine is looming in South Sudan. #breastfeeding saves lives and a mother's body will always make good milk, even in times of famine.

When mothers wonder if the food they eat affects the quality of milk it's comforting to know that we always are making the exact food our babies need to be healthy and grow strong.

“In the US, a cleft lip and/or palate affect approximately 1 in 600 live births. Frequency of the conditions varies from country to country. Despite the incidence of clefts, there is very little in the breastfeeding literature about breastfeeding with a cleft lip and palate, and very few breastfeeding counselors and lactation consultants seem to have direct and repeated experience with it.”
