Yes: Absolutely! It's one of the best things to do with a newborn to help with milk supply. The more time mom and baby spend together, the more opportunities to feed and therefore increase milk production. Plus, there are other benefits as well, like temperature regulation and the development of a sense of safety and security. ...Read more

Is there any chemicals breastfeeding mothers should avoid when choosing skin care products?

Is there any chemicals breastfeeding mothers should avoid when choosing skin care products?

YES, many...: Unfortunately there is absolutely no regulation of what companies can put into skin care products, and the chemicals in those products are absorbed into our bloodstreams and can wind up in breast milk. The list of common toxins is too numerous to list here so I advise you go to http://www. Ewg. Org/skindeep/, a fantastic resource for checking on the safety & toxicity of virtually all skin products. ...Read more

Is iy safe to use nail hair and skin supplement during breastfeeding?

Is iy safe to use nail hair and skin supplement during breastfeeding?

No: During pregnancy it usually best to just stay on your prescribed prenatal vitamin. Otc supplements sometimes have contaminants in them that. (unless your supplement is from a company that tests its bulk materials and attests its purity) this holds true during breast feeding. Continuation of the prescribed prenatal is the safest approach for at least the first 6 months. ...Read more

Can baby get sick if breastfeeding and there is a skin infection in mom?

Can baby get sick if breastfeeding and there is a skin infection in mom?

It depends: There are so many skin infections it is hard to make a blanket statement that covers every variation. It would depend on what the infection is from, how bad is it, where exactly on the breast is the infection, is the infection partly treated and no longer contagious because it is partly treated but the mom is not yet fully recovered. Best bet is to get the opinion of a breatfeeding friendly dr. ...Read more

I'm a breastfeeding mom. When I look down at nursing baby I feel a sharp pain in neck that shots up the back of my head. What ciukd cause this?

Irritated nerve?: If there is pain, tingling, numbness, or electrical sensations felt when a person moves her head or neck in a particular direction, she may be irritating or compressing a nerve coming out of the spinal cord. A neurologist or a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation) doctor can figure out the problem and start therapy. Sometimes neck x-rays and / or MRI are needed. ...Read more

Is it safe to take the hair skin and nails gummy vitamins while breastfeeding?

Is it safe to take the hair skin and nails gummy vitamins while breastfeeding?

Vitamins?: It is commonly recommended to continue on your prenatal vitamins the duration of breast feeding. I am unclear what vitamins are in the gummy vitamins but if they are multivitamins then they should be fine. Always consult with your doctor if you are ever unsure about something of this nature. Bring the bottles with you if all medications you child is taking at every visit. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I am breastfeeding my son and I have fallen asleep with his head resting on my arms. I wake up with arm hurting. Am I doing long term damage to arms?

I am breastfeeding my son and I have fallen asleep with his head resting on my arms. I wake up with arm hurting. Am I doing long term damage to arms?

Unlikely: Unless you have some sort of pre-existing nerve damage, it would be highly unlikely for a baby's head just resting against your arms to cause any permanent damage. Think of it as your leg falling asleep. Some sort of compression lead your nerve to tell you that something is wrong, so that means you should not leave your baby's head there for too long, but your body is giving you a sign. ...Read more

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.

Needs evaluation: "blisters" and "dead skin" on a breast after mastitis sounds like a problem. A primary care doctor can evaluate it to see if further treatment is needed, or perhaps the previously inflamed skin is now drying up and will eventually peel away, leaving new skin. The breast can be examined now and then again later, to be sure the breast returns to normal, and there is not another medical problem. ...Read more
