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.

When I (Alyssa) began my nursing journey almost 20 years ago, nursing in public was a BIG DEAL.  There would be criticism by others.  There was the dilemma about how and whether to cover up.  It made it pretty challenging to leave the house and still feel like you could meet the needs of your baby.  What really surprises me is that this situation hasn't changed much since then - even though many more parents are breastfeeding now!  But I hope that change is on the horizon. Robin gives us lots of information on how today's new parents can be part of that change to make nursing in public more accessible and comfortable for all.

This podcast episode is so absolutely rich with information and ideas, no matter what your breastfeeding outside the box situation, you won't want to pass this one up.  Starting with her own "lactastrophe", Kristen shares with us how to find help, causes of low milk production such as insufficient glandular tissue (IGT) and insulin resistance, herbs and medications that can help increase milk production, sources of milk donations, LGBTQ breastfeeding, and more.
