This post, published February 3, 2017 was pulled by Facebook yet again. I cannot understand why. Some troll complained, I guess.

Late onset decreased milk supply
Watch the video of a 3 month old baby. This video, incidentally, was yet another that was pulled by Facebook a few months ago. In any case, what does this video show? It shows a baby drinking plenty of milk at the breast. How do we...

Watch the video attached. This 8 week old baby is hardly drinking. There are no long pauses at the chin as milk fills his mouth. Compare with this video [ Goo.gl Link ] which shows a baby getting lots of milk. The posted video shows a baby nibbling only. I have posted before on feeding on one breast at a feeding and how it can lead to problems. To see what my take is on one sided feedings,...

Inducing lactation

The attached photo shows a mother who has breastfed her adopted baby from the baby’s birth. The baby is now 4 months old and breastfeeding exclusively from birth. He has never had any formula.

The mother followed the protocol we recommend for inducing lactation and it can be accessed in the chapter in my book (revised 2014). You can get the chapter by clicking the...

A full day conference in Cluj, Romania. A new way to look at breastfeeding issues. I will be speaking in English, I believe there will be interpretation into Romanian but check with Sorana contact@promama.ro.
The attached video is very interesting. I often state that a good latch is very important to prevent sore nipples and to make sure the baby gets more milk from the breast. But this video shows how a baby who does not have a good latch to start with and is hardly getting any milk from the breast, but as the milk starts to flow, the baby improves his latch. So, with a good latch, the baby gets...

Late onset decreased milk supply

Watch the video of a 3 month old baby. This video, incidentally, was yet another that was pulled by Facebook a few months ago. In any case, what does this video show? It shows a baby drinking plenty of milk at the breast. How do we know the baby is drinking plenty? We know from the pause in the baby’s chin as the baby opens wide, just before the baby...

Please watch this video. Is the baby drinking milk? No, very little if any at all. The baby is showing no pause in the chin as the baby opens his mouth to the widest point. Compare with the videos Really good drinking [ Goo.gl Link ] and another Nibbling [ Goo.gl Link ]. Why do I put this up? Because, I am getting so many emails from mothers having so many breastfeeding problems because...

See the attached photo. I hope that Facebook does not removed this photo as it did the last time I posted a photo of a mother’s breast with an abscess. I suppose the nipple offended some people, so I cropped this photo so there is no nipple showing. This post and the photo are important. I get several emails every month (4 in the last 2 days) of mothers who have had botched incision and...

Watch this video. What is this all about? Well, we see a baby being fed a bottle of breastmilk through a nipple shield. I admit we were not able to get this baby to take the breast at the visit to our clinic. The baby was being fed on a nipple shield at the breast and he became very agitated when we tried to help the baby latch on to the breast. We tried to calm him with finger feeding,...

I am reposting this video and the text. I believe that Facebook has somehow throttled the post of December 31. This is an extremely important issue and I really believe it needs a far wider reach than it achieved. Indeed, it has not increased by even 1 person in 48 hours. In all my years on Facebook, this has never happened. So read it again, and if you haven't, read it please.

Watch the...

Watch the video. This 3 day old baby has typical normal newborn jaundice. Is this bad for him? Well, actually, if the baby is getting goodly amounts of milk from the breast, and he is in this video, (as you can see by the pause in the chin as he opens his mouth to the widest point), the jaundice, due to bilirubin in his system (blood, skin) is not a bad thing, but actually a good thing. ...

So, once again, Facebook deleted one of my posts because some troll called it "spam". Somehow that's worse than calling my posts "nudity" by showing a breast. There must be some way to object to Facebook about this happening. Anyway, here again is my "spam".

I will be posting over the next little while on several aspects of sleep and the breastfeeding baby. Start by watching this video...

I will be posting over the next little while on several aspects of sleep and the breastfeeding baby. Start by watching this video of a 24 hour baby at the breast. He is drinking a lot of milk and one knows this by watching his chin as he opens his mouth wide. This pause tells the observer that the baby is getting milk, the longer the pause the more milk the baby is getting. True, this 24...

What is just not right in the following story? An email from a mother:

“My baby is 24 days old. My pediatrician said that I didn’t have enough milk and that the baby was sucking in air. He recommended I stop breastfeeding altogether and gave me a prescription for bromocriptine (Parlodel), (a drug which interferes with prolactin secretion). I took it for two days and then stopped because I...

So once again, the holidays are upon us. The questions on alcohol and breastfeeding to our website have increased hugely. And so I post once again on alcohol and breastfeeding and brave the wrath of those who don't agree with me.

Would I be worried about the mother in this photo breastfeeding her baby if she had had a glass of wine over an hour ago? No (read on). Would I be worried...

What do you see in the attached photo? A baby about 1 month of age with thrush on the inside of his cheeks . The baby also has a tongue tie. His mother came to our clinic with a complaint of sore nipples. Though the baby was exclusively breastfeeding and gaining well, the baby was also getting a pacifier a fair bit of the time.

Mothers email me almost every day about Candida (thrush,...
