Breastfeeding Outside the Box

We are proud to present a series of podcasts for parents Breastfeeding Outside the Box, where we aim to support the nourishing and nurturing of babies in exceptional families - families who historically have not received the help and support they need and deserve. Our exceptional families include adoptive, intended, and foster families; gender and sexual minorities; families with special needs babies; parents who have had breast surgery; mothers with IGT or low milk production for other reasons; exclusively pumping mothers; and more.

You are in for a treat with this lovely same-sex female couple who shared the role of breastfeeding their daughter. Rachel and Talana explain that co-nursing has been a delicate balance but with many advantages.  It enhanced the closeness each parent experienced with their daughter.  It made meeting their child's needs easier.  And it strengthened their bond as a couple.  The fact that Rachel is a lactation consultant helped get them though some tough spots - and lucky for many of you, Rachel and Talana's wise words can guide you through as well.

What?! How can you have a "breastfeeding" podcast episode on bottle-feeding?  Well pretty easily as it turns out.  We at Breastfeeding Outside the Box understand that breastfeeding cannot always look like exclusive breastfeeding, and there are many situations in which nursing parents may need to use a bottle to feed their baby.  Through her groundbreaking (and frankly, courageous) efforts, Dee Kassing has developed a method of bottle-feeding that not only doesn't cause the dreaded nipple confusion, flow confusion or flow preference, but actually helps babies with nursing.  Some parents have even called it "therapeutic".  Dee honors us once again with her expertise and wisdom on this week's podcast episode.

How wonderful when a family includes a breastfeeding mother! Well how about if a family includes two of them?  For same-sex female couples, both mothers can share in the nursing of their baby.  This is called co-nursing.  Co-nursing can be such a gift for families, but it also has its challenges.  Rachel is a lactation consultant with personal experience with co-nursing.  She shares her amazing wisdom and insights with us on this podcast episode!
