Today on the Milk Minute we learn all about Heather’s birth plan and everything she’d like to do differently with baby #3 from birthing, immediately after birth, lactation, diapers, to anything and everything postpartum. Your two lactation BFFs and favorite cohosts get personal while sharing life updates as well as some announcements about the podcast. Tune in to hear how Heather is preparing to make #3 her best birth and postpartum yet with the help of her midwife, Maureen.
This week on the Milk Minute, your favorite hosts talk all about…you guessed it, nipples. Heather’s bump has been in the spotlight but today they’re shining a light on different kinds of bumps. Maybe you’ve wondered, “What are those bumps on my nipples? Should I pop them?” (Spoiler alert: you shouldn’t!) “Does milk come out of those bumps? What exactly is an areola?”
Maureen and Heather answer all of these questions and more when it comes to those two extra sensitive milk dispensers on your chest. Tune in for an episode on anatomy and learn more about how your body is incredibly designed to facilitate breastfeeding.
Today on the Milk Minute Heather and Maureen tackle the hot topic of dairy allergies. Most of their patients who are dealing with this are on strict elimination diets and have persistent PTSD from symptoms in their infant. It can be incredibly frustrating and incredibly confusing. Not to mention the “cure” is really disruptive to our lives (aka- no cheese?) and the real test is reintroduction?!
Tune in as we try to break this down for you in simpler terms and hope that we can give you some peace of mind!
Heather and Maureen tackle one of the hardest questions clients bring into them today: “Should I stop breastfeeding?” Knowing when to truly throw the towel in and change your plans is extremely hard for some folks, particularly when so much value has been placed on your breastfeeding relationship – whether by you or others. This episode is here to reassure you that it’s ok to ask that question, and it’s ok to answer it with “now”. Your friends at the Milk Minute recorded this episode to help you find the next best step for YOU and your family.
