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.

"Calm Down. It's about relationship"

That is what Amber Duncan ultimately learned about breastfeeding.  Breastfeeding isn't only about feeding a baby - it is also about the connection nursing facilitates between parent and baby.  This glass-half-full (or breast/bottle-half-full in this case!) attitude allowed Amber to look beyond her own ability to produce milk and find that using a combination of her own milk and donor milk could lead her and her baby to a successful long-term breastfeeding relationship.

"They say to marry your best friend, but what about your breast friend? Our story of laughter, tears, and endless pumping proves that that a couple who breeds together can feed together!" - Bethy Annsa

Interested in learning more about trans feminine nursing or co-nursing? We are delighted to share Sparrow and Bethy's beautiful story with you.

‚ÄčIt was a shock for Rosalie when it was determined postpartum that she had a condition called Insufficient Glandular Tissue, more commonly referred to as IGT.  IGT is a breast condition that makes it difficult - and in most cases impossible - for a nursing parent to produce enough milk to meet all her baby's feeding requirements. Rosalie understands firsthand how difficult this diagnosis can be.  She also understands that it doesn't mean the end of breastfeeding.  Today, as a lactation consultant working with nursing parents with IGT, Rosalie focuses on developing a plan for long-term breastfeeding success, which she believes (and we agree!) is very possible for parents with IGT.  In this week's podcast, Rosalie shares with us about IGT with the heart of someone who has been there and the wisdom of her professional experience.
