Hormonal Genius adrenaline::oxytocin
as tums::stomach acid any given mother has a given milk-making capacity –
some moms will always make more milk than others, and vice versa Demand Begets Supply if the icebin is full, the icemaker will quit making ice. it's the same paradigm in breastfeeding. if no one demands (and empties), no supply will be replinished. emptying the breast is key!

her partner can't do much to bond with the baby or help Fact or Fiction? a breastfeeding mother should avoid
gassy or spicy foods. go on...variety is the spice of life! aw, mom! that stuff again?!? garlic and cabbage and onions, oh my! support is key Research indicates that dad's “emotional, practical and physical supports were identified as important factors to promote successful breastfeeding and to enrich the experience for the mother " and...the father (emphasis added) 1.

It isn't breastfeeding that increases baby's and mom's health; it's choosing to formula-feed that detracts from the health of both mom and baby. It's good for baby breastmilk is easier to digest than formula fewer ear infections in baby baby gets fewer stomach viruses fewer respiratory infections in baby (lifelong) reduced risk of diabetes (types I & II) (lifelong) reduced risk of obesity reduced risk of childhood leukemia reduced risk of SIDS higher intelligence Is it as interesting to you as it is to me that as our breastfeeding rates declined our rates of diabetes and obesity increased? Hmmm. why? hmmm...there are those interesting correlated rates again.... some things are just better together drink up. toss it back. not? painful time consuming didn't produce "enough" embarrassed restrictive had to go back to work didn't want breasts to sag wanted baby to sleep "better" cultural norms
