The pleasure centers of the brain are stimulated by any mouthing/sucking of a baby and they will 24/7. Feeding as they wake, not when tired helps. If they are losing weight, any balanced supplement may work. ...Read more

One of the tenets of breast preservation surgery is the maintenance of a normal appearing breast. If a surgeon does not feel they can provide a good cosmetic outcome, alternatives such as mastectomy with reconstruction might be offered. ...Read more
