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.

What do parents most want to know about inducing lactation?  One of the things they most want to know is whether they will be able produce enough milk to meet all their baby's nutritional needs - what we often refer to as "a full milk supply." Most parents who induce lactation produce anywhere from a few drops to a full milk supply.  This is a huge range of results!  So, can we predict how much milk a parent inducing lactation may make?  What factors influence eventual milk production? In today's podcast, Alyssa and Hope discuss these questions and more.

Mari is a scientist and an innovator ... and an intended mother through surrogacy who nursed her babies.  So when the Medela Supplemental Nursing System - more commonly known as the SNS - wasn't meeting her needs, Mari tweaked it.  She didn't like the way it worked using gravity, got caught on her long hair and glasses when she hung it around her neck, leaked, and was difficult to know whether baby was getting supplement through the feeding tube.  Mari modified how she used her SNS to fix these issues - and now you can too!
