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.

As it turns out, breastfeeding is not just "A Womanly Art."  Steph shares an incredible story about a same-sex male couple she worked with who both nursed their baby, exclusively providing human milk for baby's first 6 months.  How does this work?  Creativity, support, milk expressed by baby's gestational carrier, and a tiny feeding tube at the father's nipple.  Steph gives us the details of this amazing nursing relationship and how to support any LGBTQIA family interested in breastfeeding/chestfeeding/nursing.

With the FDA warning against domperidone, we have noticed an increasing number of U.S. parents who choose to induce lactation or relactate without using the pharmaceutical medication domperidone.  While we have spent many episodes discussing the safety and effectiveness of domperidone, our ultimate goal is to  meet each parent with a plan for inducing lactation or relactation that is consistent with their preferences.  In this episode Alyssa and Hope discuss alternatives to domperidone and how milk production may be impacted by a lactation plan that does not include dom.
