The baby is not breastfeeding well. What can a mother do, to get more milk to the baby? This is a question mothers frequently ask at our clinic and in the emails I receive. Breast compression results in a baby receiving more milk from the breast and helps with fussy babies, babies who are not getting enough from the breast, babies who do not gain well, babies whose mothers have had a...

People often wonder how to know a health professional is supportive of breastfeeding. Read my article explaining which qualities you could be looking for. Was there a health professional who has said or done something that supported your efforts to breastfeed?

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is one of the commonest reasons for formula supplementation in the first few days after birth. But most babies are tested for low blood sugar for no good reason, and most babies get formula by bottle also unnecessarily.

1. Doing routine blood sugars on every baby at birth is another example of how "worrying about being sued" causes damage to babies and creates...

Jaundice, bilirubin and breastfeeding in the first few days

It is normal for babies to have jaundice during the first few days of life, (though not usually on day 1). The bilirubin which causes the yellow colour of the baby’s skin rises to a peak, usually on the third day of life and then decreases. It is called “physiologic jaundice” because it is normal. Where does the bilirubin come...

As a followup to the post on 10% weight loss which I published on May 5 2017 (click [ Goo.gl Link ] to see it with the text), this video shows a 3 day old baby who is 10% below birth weight, yet is breastfeeding well. The mother was under a lot of pressure to supplement him, but a good lactation consultant encouraged the mother by showing how to know the baby is getting milk well and allowing...

Speaking of fluids (see previous post from today, May 5 [ Goo.gl Link ], parts of southern Ontario and parts of Quebec are in danger of flooding. In times of natural disaster, in times of war, when it may not be possible to buy formula, the breast is available to the baby. The photo is from Slovakia a few years ago, not from Ontario or Quebec.

In many hospitals, 10% weight loss is used as an accurate measure of how the breastfeeding is going in the first few days after birth. In fact, it is nothing of the sort. All too often it results in babies getting unnecessary supplementation, often by bottle, and the mother and baby do not get the help they need to succeed in breastfeeding. Here are some reasons:

1. In affluent countries, the...

Here is an email I received recently from one of our patients:

On Monday May 1, there will be a showing of the film TIGERS at the Humber cinema in Toronto (Jane and Bloor). This is the film about a very brave man who worked as a representative for Nestle and what happened when he learned what formula feeding did to babies in his native Pakistan. It's worth seeing. For more information click [ Goo.gl Link ] or copy it into your browser. It starts at 7...

Things are going badly awry in many hospitals around the world, where mothers and babies are not getting the help they need to breastfeed successfully. I have posted on this on Facebook before. Click [ Goo.gl Link ] for the post on “The first few days, why so many problems?” Change is necessary to help mothers and babies.

What needs to change in hospitals is that some babies are running...

Let the trolls object and Facebook delete this photo. It's in a church, for God's sake, obvious to any child in the church, the Karlskirche in Vienna. It even shows some nipple, Oy! So, happy Easter and Passover to all and to any others who are celebrating the spring.

I have posted several times on one sided feeding, so I looked through my email questions over the last 7 days. Only those...

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...
