Breastfeeding Benefits

Happy World Breastfeeding Week! We are thrilled that you’ve joined us to raise awareness for breastfeeding. We will be celebrating the entire month of August with our educational blog series Breastfeeding Basics where we are exploring topics that we hope will help will make breastfeeding a little easier for you. So sit back, relax, nurse and read on….

There’s no doubt about it, breastfeeding is the healthiest choice you can make for nurturing and nourishing your baby. And here’s the great news about that: breastfeeding benefits your baby, you, and so many other aspects of your life as well. Today we’re reminding you all the ways your extraordinary gift of breastfeeding benefits the world around you.

Breastfeeding Benefits Your Baby

Breastfeeding BenefitsBreast milk is the most wholesome first food on the planet, tailor-made for your infant. Breast milk supports your baby’s immune system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, emotional wellbeing and brain development. Studies show that breastfed babies benefit in all of these areas both as infants and later in life as evidenced by less incidence of illness, disease and chronic conditions and higher IQ. Plus, breastfeeding helps your baby feel safe, secure and loved.

Breastfeeding Benefits You

Breastfeeding helps you bond with your baby for a calmer, more loving relationship and attentiveness to your baby’s needs. Thanks to this bond and the feel-good hormones produced for and from breastfeeding, statistics show nursing mothers have lower incidence of postpartum depression and anxiety. Since breastfeeding encourages uterine contractions and burns calories, moms who do it experience less postpartum bleeding and return to their pre-baby shape faster. Mothers who breastfeed also have a lowered risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and osteoporosis.

Breastfeeding Benefits the Environment

Breastfeeding cuts out a tremendous amount of waste and pollution that goes into the formula industry. Water, energy and other vital resources are usurped by the manufacturing, packaging, transporting, marketing and selling of formula and the accessories that are required for formula feeding. Additionally, each of the steps to getting formula in the mouths of babies contributes to pollution. And get this, the ingredients may be the worse offender: most formulas are based on cow’s milk and cows are one of the largest sources of methane gas on earth. When viewed holistically, not breastfeeding can lead to climate change and have a negative impact on the planet for our children’s future.

Breastfeeding Benefits the Healthcare System

Sick babies (and children and adults) tax the healthcare system and lead to excessive expenses. A study estimated that the U.S. alone could save approximately $13 billion in healthcare costs yearly if babies were breastfed for at least the recommended six months. Just think what the savings would be if moms continued breastfeeding for a year or more. And since breastfed babies grow up to be healthier children and adults, healthcare savings continue to add up.

Breastfeeding Benefits Employers

With less sick babies and children, parents are able to be at work more regularly rather than staying home with their sick children. And when babies and children aren’t getting sick, parents are less likely to be sick as well. This increases productivity. Plus when employers support breastfeeding goals, employees are happier and more loyal to their companies. Furthermore, lowered healthcare costs will save companies money on employer-supported healthcare plans.

Breastfeeding Benefits Everyone

Between healthier, happier families, more productivity at work, a cleaner environment and less unnecessary expenditures, breastfeeding benefits communities around the world!

 

Loving Moments believes moms should have the knowledge, resources and power to make the healthiest choices for their babies, starting with breastfeeding. In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month in August, we are sharing Breastfeeding Basics, our educational blog series that we hope will empower you with information, encouragement and inspiration to meet your breastfeeding goals.

Let’s Get Real about your Pelvic Floor

Let’s Get Real about your Pelvic FloorIt’s probably not every day that you think about and talk about your pelvic floor but when you’re pregnant or if you’ve just had a baby, you should. Pelvic floor exercise, the most common of which is kegels, can help you during labor, delivery and beyond. We’re getting real about your pelvic floor and explaining all you need to know about kegels.

What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is the set of muscles, nerves, tissues and ligaments that support your bladder, rectum, vagina, and uterus. As you can imagine, these are all very important during pregnancy, particularly as your baby grows and puts more pressure on these areas.

How does a strong pelvic floor help during pregnancy, labor and delivery?

Your growing baby is doing her job by gaining in weight and length day-by-day inside the womb. However, this contributes to a lot of pressure on your pelvic floor. By exercising your pelvic floor, your muscles will be more suited to hold this extra weight comfortably. When it comes time for your baby’s big debut, your pelvic floor will stretch a great deal to allow for your baby’s safe passage. Women who have a strong pelvic floor generally have easier deliveries and perhaps even shorter periods of active labor.

How does a strong pelvic floor help postpartum?

After being stretched to the max during delivery, your pelvic floor will need some time to regain its shape. A strong pelvic floor will have an easier time “bouncing back” and can help reduce chances of side-effects like urine leaks or incontinence after childbirth. If these muscles remain relaxed, even sneezing, being startled or laughing can cause some leakage.

What are kegels?

Kegels are the exercise in which you contract and release your pelvic floor to build the muscles. The best way to learn how to do a kegel is to stop the flow of your urine while you’re going to the bathroom. The motion you used to freeze your urine stream is a kegel. Once you know how to do it, it’s pretty simple and can be done anywhere. No one will even know you’re doing it so feel fee to do it at your desk, in your car, in bed or while sitting at the dinner table. (But don’t continue to do it while urinating because it can lead to bladder problems.)

How often should you do kegels?

It’s best to work your way up to doing 3 sets of 20 kegels a day. Contract your pelvic floor for 5 seconds at a time and then release. You can make it fun by downloading an app with kegels music routines or involving your partner.

Exercising your pelvic floor may not be your most favorite activity during pregnancy and postpartum but it’s one that can surely pay off if you do it regularly.

Conditions that Affect Breastfeeding

BreastConditions that Affect Breastfeedingfeeding is a treasured gift for most moms. But in some cases, a mother’s desire and effort to breastfeed are contradicted by conditions that affect breastfeeding. Past breast surgeries or procedures, diagnosis of a disease or nipple structure can all impede your ability to safely or effectively breastfeed. Today we’re examining conditions that affect breastfeeding and how to navigate them for you’re your best chance of success.

Breast Biopsy or Surgery

Breast biopsies or surgeries may impact milk ducts or nerves and render them incapable of stimulating or releasing breast milk. If a breast biopsy is necessary, a surgery-free needle biopsy is the best choice to reduce likelihood of damaging milk ducts and nerves but even a surgical biopsy can leave enough unaffected areas for successful breastfeeding.

The same is true of breast augmentation and breast reduction surgery. Make it clear to your surgeon that you would like the option to breastfeed in the future so he can do his best to leave nerves in tact. The nerves are essential for stimulating milk production. While you won’t know for sure if you can breastfeed until after your baby is born, if you have sensation in your nipple, you may be able to at least partially breastfeed.

A mastectomy or removal of one breast doesn’t mean you cannot breastfeed. Believe it or not, you may be able to sustain your baby’s needs with the other breast if it is fully functional. It might take some extra work to establish and maintain a strong milk supply, however.

Nipple Conditions

Flat or inverted nipples can make breastfeeding more tedious but the good news is they don’t impact milk supply. Flat nipples lay flush with the areola while inverted nipples retract into the areola, either slightly, moderately or severely. You may need to stimulate your nipples prior to breastfeeding to help your baby latch, which you can do manually or with a pump. Holding your breast skin tightly to encourage your nipples to protrude may also help.

You can also likely breastfeed with a pierced nipple as long as the jewelry has been removed. Piercing could damage milk ducts but you won’t know for sure until you start breastfeeding.

Cancer

Breastfeeding can continue during most diagnostic testing for cancer. If you need to undergo chemotherapy or radioactive isotope treatment, you will need to discontinue breastfeeding until these substances are completely out of your system. Consider pumping and discarding the milk to maintain milk supply. In some cases you may be able to breastfeed from the uninfected breast during treatment. Past cancer treatment should not affect your ability to breastfeed as long as the drugs are out of your body.

Gestational Diabetes

Breastfeeding after gestational diabetes may be more difficult due to a delayed milk supply but it is beneficial for both you and your baby. When you have gestational diabetes your baby may be born with low blood sugar and breastfeeding early and often will help stabilize your baby’s blood sugar and reduce risk of developing diabetes herself later in life. Breastfeeding may help you recover from gestational diabetes and reduce risk of developing type 2 diabetes, while also helping with postpartum weight loss.

Hepatitis

Typically moms with hepatitis A, B or C can continue breastfeeding. HAV can be treated with medication that is safe during breastfeeding. Babies born to moms with HBV will be fully immunized and tested. HCV can be transmitted through blood, not breast milk itself, so the only reason to discontinue breastfeeding is if your nipples are cracked and bleeding.

HIV/AIDS

This virus and disease and the drugs used to treat them can be transferred through breast milk. Moms with HIV or AIDS who have safe alternatives for feeding their babies should not breastfeed.

Drug Addiction and Certain Medications

Intravenous drugs and certain prescription medications are not compatible with breastfeeding. If you must take a drug for medical reasons and no safe alternative is available, temporarily suspend breastfeeding until you are cleared to resume.

10 Things Not to Say to your Children

10 Things Not to Say to your ChildrenIn the heat of a tough parenting moment, sometimes the wrong words come to mind. For some, holding your tongue and reframing your feelings to be more positive and encouraging can be one of the hardest parts of being a parent.  But studies show, it’s a very important skill to master.

The way you speak to your children makes a profound impression on them. It can impact their short-term behavior and their long-term emotional outlook. Your words become their inner monologue from a young age. Use your commentary to boost your child’s confidence and support their needs with compassion by avoiding these 10 things not to say to your children:

“You’re OK”

This comment is dismissive of your child’s feelings when they are hurt or upset. Clearly they are not OK if they are reacting. Perhaps it was not the physical pain of a fall or startling sound that bothered them but rather the scare of the incident. Acknowledge the issue with compassion and ask how you can help.

“Hurry Up”

Kids are notorious for doddling but telling them to hurry adds stress to the situation. A better way to speed things along is to make a game or contest out of tasks that seem to take forever, or at least use the phrase “let’s hurry” rather than “hurry up” so your child knows you are both working on moving things forward together.

“Eat this (insert vegetable), it’s good for you.”

News flash, kids don’t think healthy food tastes good so they’re not going to want to eat it if you tell them it’s good for them. Instead you can tell them you find it delicious and explain exactly how that food helps their body.

“Stop crying”

First, this doesn’t actually get your child to stop crying so it’s highly ineffective. Second, you’re teaching your child it is not OK to cry. Crying is actually pretty healthy release of emotions when your child is upset, and a much better alternative than biting someone or destroying property. Your child will feel more afraid if you instruct him to stop crying but you can say you want to talk it through when he calms down. Until them, hug or hold your child until he’s ready to communicate.

“Because I Said So”

This one slips out sometimes when you’re just sick of answering why, why, why to the same questions all the time. But try not to do it because it is showing your child you expect him to follow authority without being given a reason. Instead, explain your reasoning or encourage your child to tell you why he thinks you’re saying something. Even if he doesn’t agree with you, he always deserves an explanation.

“You’re Driving Me Crazy”

Yes, your kids may drive you nuts many times a day but telling them so is not a good response. First, it shows lack of self-control on your part and it may also make your child blame himself for the feelings of others in this and other situations. A better way to handle stressful moments is to tell your child you are having trouble being patient and you need a break. As long as he is safe, walk away for a few minutes to catch your breath.

“Practice Makes Perfect”

Your child’s goal should always be self-improvement, not perfection. Perfection is unattainable, frustrating and sometimes psychologically damaging to kids. Rather, encourage your child to work hard to make progress towards his objective and feel rewarded by his efforts and the results.

“Stop Being a Baby”

Acting babyish may be a response to feelings or a certain situation. Baby behaviors often perk up when a new baby enters the home and is getting lots of attention or if a child is experiencing fear or anxiety. After you uncover the root cause, work with your child to face the issue in an age-appropriate way.

“I’ve Told You This 100 Times”

Your child may have mastered the art of tuning you out so repeating yourself and nagging aren’t going to solve the problem. Instead, ask your child a question that he has to think about and answer verbally to help him digest your message. Being passively told to do something is less memorable than an active conversation about the request.

“You’re Doing it Wrong”

Children learn through trial and error and more often than not they learn more from failure than success. Plus, you and your child need to know that there is more than one right way to do things. Solving a problem or completing a task his own way will build up your child’s confidence and help him become an independent thinker.

Baby Food Allergies

Exploring new foods with your baby can be fun, but also a little nerve-wracking. Her pure body is just learning how to digest different foods and some may not agree with her. Baby food allergies can range in severity and may be present from birth. Experts believe up to 6% of babies have true food allergies, while others may have intolerances. And in some cases, babies can grow out of their food allergies and intolerances over time.

When Do Baby Food Allergies Appear

Starting solids is not the first time you may face the risk of baby food allergies. If your breastfed baby has a strong food allergy from birth, she may react to a food that you have eaten and passed along through your breast milk. Once you and your pediatrician determine what is causing your baby’s allergic reaction, it will be necessary for you to stop eating that food for awhile during breastfeeding. You may be able to slowly re-incorporate the food back into your diet over time with the guidance of your pediatrician.

Babies who take both breast milk and formula and have milk allergies may need to go on sensitive formula or be exclusively breastfed since cow’s milk is the main ingredient in standard formula.  Keep in mind, a milk allergy is different than being lactose intolerant, which is an inability to digest lactose. Lactose intolerance is very rare in babies.

Baby Food AllergiesMost Common Baby Food Allergies

Besides milk, the most common baby food allergies are: nuts, fish and shellfish, eggs, wheat and soy.

Symptoms of Baby Food Allergies

Symptoms of baby food allergies usually appear shortly after your baby has been breastfed or eats the food in question. The immune system reacts by releasing antibodies to combat what it deems to be a foreign attack, i.e. the food. Symptoms can vary widely but may include skin rash, itchiness or hives; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or blood stools; respiratory issues such as not breathing, wheezing or sneezing; and dizziness or fainting. Babies who are fussy after eating or who are not gaining weight properly may also have food allergies. While gassiness, bloating and an otherwise upset stomach are somewhat common among babies, this is not a sign of a food allergy.

Diagnosing Baby Food Allergies

It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing your baby’s food allergies while you are breastfeeding since you probably eat a diverse diet. Eliminating food groups from your diet one at a time may help you determine the culprit.

As your baby start solids, it is important to wait a few days between introducing new foods to see how your baby will react. If your baby starts to show signs of a food allergy once she has a range of foods under her belt, most doctors recommend eliminating foods to see what makes a difference. An allergist can also perform a skin test to see which foods cause your baby’s skin to react.

Increased Risk for Baby Food Allergy

Allergies are still a mystery but researchers do know that having parents or a sibling with food allergies puts a baby at increased risk of developing them herself. That’s why it is important to disclose familial food allergies to your pediatrician.

Baby food allergies can be quite serious so pay close attention to signs of a food allergy during breastfeeding and as your baby enters the wonderful world of solid food.

Tips for Soothing a Fussy Baby in Public

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar…

Your super sweet, ultra mellow baby is a dream-come-true at home. But the moment you walk out the door, all bets are off and the fussiness ensues.

Your baby had an amazing nap and you’re ready to tackle some errands while your little one seems up for the challenge. Wrong! She cries during the entire outing.

You have an appointment and baby is along for the ride. She’s not into her new surroundings and makes her feelings very clear.

Your baby is fussy no matter where you are or what time of day it is so you just need to get out of the house every now and then. If she’s going to cry at home or out-and-about, what difference does it make anyways?

Tips for Soothing a Fussy Baby in PublicIn any of the situations and many others as well, dealing with a fussy baby in public can be very frustrating. Not only do you feel sympathy for your upset baby and perhaps a bit irritated by the crying, you may also feel like you can’t do anything right and everyone around you is judging your every move.

If you’ve been in this place before with your baby, try these tips for soothing a fussy baby in public:

Give Your Baby Some Attention: When you’re running errands or tending to your other children during after school activities your baby may just be along for the ride…and she’s probably highly aware of that. Rather than carting her around and expecting her to entertain herself, engage her periodically. Describe what you’re doing, sing songs, play finger games and interact with her toys. By giving her attention when you can, she’ll probably be more satisfied with periods of independent observation and play.

Wear Your Baby: Being close to mom may be all it takes to keep your little one out of the fussy zone. Bring along your baby-wearing device whenever you are in public and put your baby in it as soon as she shows signs of fussiness. She will love your warmth, the feel of your skin, the sound of your heartbeat and the soft kisses you give her along the way.

Feed Your Baby: Breastfeeding isn’t just about the milk. Even if you don’t think your baby is hungry (which she may be, by the way) she may be expressing her need for your comfort. Breastfeeding is pure comfort for many babies and you can soothe her through feeding.

Use the 5 S’s: Harvey Karp’s Happiest Baby on the Block method of swaying, shushing, swaddling, sucking and swinging are all great way to soothe a fussy baby in public. You may not be able to employ all of them but do what you can to calm your baby.

Stay Calm: Sure, you may be extremely frustrated but do your best to stay calm. Your baby feeds off of your emotions and the energy you release. Fussiness is a part of infancy and sometimes it is let out at inopportune times. Have a positive attitude about helping your little one catch her breath and if all else fails, have a sense of humor about it.

Make an Exit: Sometimes you just need to know when it’s time to leave. Sacrifice is part of being a mom and when your baby is so unhappy that you’re not being productive or you can’t think straight, head home and try again another time. Don’t be discouraged, however. Infant fussiness is a stage that will eventually pass and you’ll be able to enjoy being out and about again soon.

Summer Uses of Breast Milk

Breast milk is one of the purest substances on earth. Thanks to its vast nutrients, breast milk has powerful healing properties that make it an incredible summertime solution for minor ailments. We’re exploring the phenomenal summer uses of breast milk to help your baby, and entire family for that matter, heal the ouchies faster than ever before.

Insect Bites & Stings: The bugs are out big time during the summer months. If your little one gets bitten or stung, rub some breast milk on the sore area to reduce itchiness and swelling.

Summer Uses of Breast MilkSunburns: A squirmy baby may cause you to miss a spot or two with sunscreen leaving an uncomfortable sunburn. Gently massage cold breast milk over the area several times daily to alleviate the burning sensation and accelerate the healing process.

Cuts & Scrapes: When your family spends more time outdoors, cuts and scraps are bound to happen. Dabbing nutrient-rich breast milk onto wounds can help them heal faster because it has powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

Diaper Rash: Diaper rashes can certainly happen year round but they are quite common in the summer when your baby sits in sand or is exposed to chlorine and other pool chemicals. Breast milk is the best all-natural solution for soothing and clearing up diaper rash.

Ear Infections: Summer excursions and travel may cause your baby to get sick. After periods of congestion, ear infections are very common among infants. Also, pool and ocean water that gets into the ear can breed bacteria that cause ear infections. Place a few drops of breast milk in your baby’s ear canal and let it work its magic to help relieve the pain from fluid-build up.

Soap: Keep your baby’s skin and hands clean with all-natural breast milk soap. Using breast milk and just a few other ingredients like essential oils, you can create your own fragrant baby soap to moisturize and nourish your baby’s skin.

Smoothies: Breast milk is wonderful for hydrating and cooling off your baby with extraordinary nutrients. Blend fruits and veggies with your breast milk for a delicious refreshing summertime smoothie.

Ice Pops: While others are enjoying less nutritious summertime snacks your baby can cool off with a breast milk ice pop. Flavored with fruit or served in “original” flavor, your baby will learn to love popsicles from an early age.

What are your favorite summer uses of breast milk?

The Dos and Don’ts of your Baby Schedule

Getting your baby on a schedule may sound like heaven to you, or it may seem like a total nightmare. It really depends on your personality and your baby’s disposition, and how you decide to manage your days (and nights) should be based on both. We’re sharing some dos and don’ts of your baby schedule to help you figure out when and how to develop a balanced routine for you and your little one.

The Dos and Don’ts of your Baby ScheduleDO pay attention to your baby’s rhythm.

Your baby is a unique being and will come to develop her own rhythm based on what her body needs. By spending lots of time with your newborn, you will start to pick up on her cues. This is where slowly developing a baby schedule begins.

DON’T jump right into a schedule without first having a routine.

Before you can thoroughly determine your baby’s schedule, you’ll first need to have a routine. You’ll probably have many routines, actually. One for feedings, one for getting ready for your day, one before naps and bedtime, and so on. Your baby will start to understand the patterns of these routines over time and they will become comforting to her. She’ll know what to expect and eventually start to actively participate. You may even notice discontent if you stray from the routine because she enjoys the consistency that much.

DO pay attention to your baby’s age.

Before 3 months, initiating a baby schedule is probably not going to work. Experts agree that in the newborn stage you really have to go with the flow. This is a great time to breastfeed on demand and establish a strong milk supply and an intimate relationship with your baby. At 3 months you’ll probably catch on to your baby’s rhythm and you can gradually ease into a schedule that suits you and your baby. Most babies are ready to sleep 12-hours at night between 4 and 6 months. By 9 months they are able to keep to a daytime sleep schedule as well.

DON’T get frustrated and give up.

If at first your baby doesn’t like the schedule, stick with it until you’ve given it a fair shot. When you’re sure she won’t take to it, consider adjusting one piece at a time to see what makes a difference. Maybe she needs to go to bed earlier or she needs a feeding both before and after her naps. Trial and error will help you figure out what works and what doesn’t.

DO be somewhat flexible.

Remember, your baby cannot tell time and sometimes your baby schedule will need to change based on the curveballs that life throws. On your baby’s side she may be going through a growth spurt or teething when she needs more sleep or more breast milk. Or your family may be traveling and you have to adjust the schedule while away from home. The best way to handle flexibility is to read your baby and to make sure you’re checking all the boxes – plenty of opportunity to sleep, feeding as your baby desires, playtime and cuddles.

DON’T let your baby get over tired or over hungry.

Crankiness is bred from exhaustion and hunger. The purpose of a schedule should be taking advantage of that window before your baby feels these extremes and satisfying the needs to keep her content and balanced. Often parents expect their babies to sleep more if they are exhausted but usually the opposite is true.

DO get help if you need it.

Your pediatrician and mom friends are all great resources for schedule challenges. If you’re having trouble getting into your baby schedule, keep a log of what your baby does for a few weeks. Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to see the emerging patterns. There are also online resources for baby schedules as well as consultants who can help you figure it out.

DON’T think your baby schedule is forever.

Just when you have it down, your baby’s routine will start to change and you’ll have to come up with a new baby schedule. This is life with children! Whether it’s dropping a nap or the start of pre-school, your baby will have many schedule changes along the way. Be an example for resourcefulness and resiliency for your baby to emulate.
