Breastfeeding My Husband Story
My elder sister is on breastfeeding. Can her husband drink her milk? Or it will affect on her baby?
No problem, unless..: Unless a mom has too little milk, it doesn't matter at all that somebody else (such as a twin sibling or another person) is drinking some of the milk. The breasts will make more. So, as long as the baby is well-fed and happily growing, Mom is fine to share her breast milk. ...Read more
Breastfeeding is providing nutrition to an infant using breat milk either directly by infant latching and sucking on the nipple or by feeding via bottle with expressed breast milk (when baby has difficulty suckling). Breast milk is the best milk for any baby but ...Read more
My elder sister is on breastfeeding. Can her husband drink her milk? Will it affect to her baby if she is feeding them?
Unusual practice: This is an unusual practice. Technically, it shouldn't affect the baby except that baby may not get enough breast milk. ...Read more
A friend wants to know if it's possible to get pregnant durin exclusive breastfeeding. Baby is 3months. Husband released in her by mistake?
Yes: If pregnant, by the time the second baby is born, the two kids will be a year apart. Many families have two kids 1 year apart. The siblings will play together and do similar activities because their ages are close to one another. Otherwise, a couple should start using a very reliable birth control method, and should check a pregnancy test in 3 weeks to be sure there is no pregnancy. ...Read more
I have a 7wk old & am breastfeeding. My hubby has been giving 1+ pumped bottle/day for a month. Can I give expressed milk sometimes w/o confusing him?
Yes, but...: Baby might not be confused, but he also might not take it. Speaking from personal experience, my daughter wouldn't take a bottle from me at that age - she knew I had the fresh stuff & insisted on nursing, but would take a bottle from anyone else. The best book out there for breastfeeding advice is "so that's what they're for: breastfeeding basics" by janet todaro. Good luck! ...Read more

Pregnancy?: It is possible to get pregnant prior to having a period after you give birth. It would be prudent for you to do a pregnancy test. There are other reasons for the delayed return of your period but that would be the one to check first. If you don't want to get pregnant so soon, you should obtain contraception and start it asap if you are not pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more
I had sex 5 weeks postpartum. I am exclusively breastfeeding. My husband started throbbing inside of me but then pulled out and came. What are the chances I could be pregnant now? I'm worried.
Still possible: Breast feeding does provide some contraception but only if you aren't even using a pacifier and withdrawal is the worst method of contraception. At only 5 weeks post-partum you are relatively safe but not 100%. Now is the time to look into starting one of the contraceptive options that doesn't interfere with breast feeding unless you want another child immediately. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Are there benefits for mother breastfeeding adopted child? My husband and I are wanting to adopt an infant, and I was told by a lactation consultant that I could begin re-lactating by a series of steps needing to take place before hand. I know the benef
Bonding,: I've assisted adoptive mom lactate; all felt it enhanced bonding. Adoptive moms who lactate don't usually have an adequate breast milk supply and will need to supplement with formula, which can be given via a supplemental nutrition device taped to mom's nipple, so baby receives breast milk and formula simultaneously. May reduce breast cancer, in post partum-wgt loss, shrink uterus. Congrats! ...Read more

Sore throat: It could be contagious, hard to say without examining him, try to avoid as much close contact for a few days, wash hands routinely etc ...Read more
No: Breastfeeding is not hard, but like learning to walk, takes some effort and practice. If you are contemplating breast feeding, see you baby's future pediatrician early in the 2nd trimester, for a breast exam and guidance tailored to you. Pediatricians will be working with you and baby, and it can be a great advantage to utilize their expertise proactively. ...Read more
Expectations: Great advice. I'll add that it can take a good month to get the hang of this new task. Many moms think they should be pros right away. If this sounds like you, adjust your expectations and give yourself time. Lactation consultants are also a great resource. ...Read more
No: Only if there are medical reasons to. If you discover you have an underlying medical problem (such as hiv) that can be transferred to your baby through breastmilk, it is wise to discontinue nursing. Certain medications may also enter the breastmilk and pose a health risk to your baby. Otherwise, unless physically or emotionally unable to, breastfeeding should be continued despite minor illness. ...Read more
Feeding when hungry: Breastfeeding on demand means tuning into a baby's hunger cues and feeding her when she starts "telling" you she is hungry. Look for alert periods, smacking lips, making sucking sounds, turning toward the breast, or sucking on her hand as hunger cues. Once a baby starts crying, she is usually really hungry. Breastfeeding on demand is a wonderful way to naturally build up a great milk supply. ...Read more
No "deadline": There is no "deadline" for breastfeeding. Breastfeeding and breastmilk have numerous benefits for you and your child. At least 6 months is desirable and if you can make it to one year, that is even better. That being said, many women may only be able to breastfeed for a few months while some will continue to breastfeed into toddlerhood. The choice is up to you and your baby. Wean on your timeline. ...Read more
Why?: Breast feeding is both nutrition and nurturing and a kid gets something from both. After 8 months, the nutritional superiority begins to fade as other foods are added. The nurturing may fill a need for you both, and you can take cues from baby on when to let go. If you have to chase baby down to feed, or the kid finished quickly and wants to leave, its time to wean. If not, continue. ...Read more
Breastfeeding operates by demand, the more baby demands milk, the more milk the breasts produce. Make sure not to supplement any formula. Depending on where you're at post partum, advice may differ. Here's a great website with lots of good information:

Not Painful: As a mother of two who breastfed both of my children, I can tell you that the first few days are an adjustment period. The key to remember is that it should not hurt. The initial latching on may be uncomfortable but once the let down happens it not painful. To learn more about breastfeeding try reading: the womanly art of breastfeeding. ...Read more
Yes: At the beginning, with your first baby, breastfeeding -- although natural -- will not come naturally. It will take a few days of time and effort and help. But you can do it, and it is one of the best things you can do for baby and for yourself. Don't be shy in taking advantage of skilled nurses and lactation consultants (lc) after birth, and get referrals to lc for after discharge home. ...Read more
Yes: Of course! Exercise is great for your physical health and will not interfere with you producing breast milk as long as your nutrition (and hydration!) remains good. Be sure to drink lots of water and consume adequate calories to replenish what you may be losing from breast feeding and also working out. ...Read more
