Container Syndrome is a term used to describe the lack of skill in infants who are not allowed ample movement opportunities. Container Baby Syndrome is the result of an infant being placed in a container for an excessive amount of time during the day. This extended time leads to structural, movement, and behavioral challenges as a result.

Baby containers include baby equipment and items such as:

👣Restrictive playpens
👣Car seats
👣Bumbo seats
👣Bouncy seats and swings
👣Nursing cushions
👣Vibrating chairs
👣Positioning pillows
👣Floor seats
👣Infant swings

All of the time spent in these baby containers adds up! When in a positioning device such as the ones listed above, little ones are limited in the motor development that results from stretching, wiggling, turning, reaching, and otherwise moving.

You guys. Don't try to DIY your baby's formula. You know this, right? Yes, there are people alive who were fed PET milk (evaporated milk) as babies and lived to tell the tale. The babies who died aren't here to speak for themselves. Infant mortality in the 1960's was FOUR times higher than it is now for white babies, and TWICE as high for black babies (yes, infant mortality for black babies is still a huge concern). Additionally, homemade formulas put babies at risk for stressed kidneys, intestinal blood loss/anemia, severe electrolyte imbalances leading to death, and SCURVY (OMG seriously).
Cow's milk is a great food for you IF YOU ARE A BABY COW. If you are raising a human, you need to give human milk, or the next best thing- commercial infant formula. ANY brand will do. Formula in 2022 is the healthiest and safest that it has ever been.

Love and hugs from your favorite IBCLC, Pam

How long did you breastfeed or pump for your children? (No judgement, EVERY DROP counts!) The World Health Organization recommends that children be nursed for at least the first two years of their lives!

Stop using these baby formulas, the FDA says, after 4 infants are hospitalized 02/20/2022

Stop using these baby formulas, the FDA says, after 4 infants are hospitalized

If your baby is medically fragile, you should only be using ready-to-feed formulas. This is because there is a tiny risk that powdered formula can be contaminated with dangerous bacteria. Fortunately, when this happens, the FDA is quick to recall any suspicious lots of powdered formula. Here is information about the current recall:

Stop using these baby formulas, the FDA says, after 4 infants are hospitalized Abbott Nutrition voluntarily recalled some powdered formulas sold under the Similac, Alimentum and EleCare brands. The FDA is investigating links to four bacterial infections, one of which was fatal.

The Period of PURPLE Crying App | 02/07/2022

The Period of PURPLE Crying App |

I attended a great webinar this morning about normal infant crying. They highlighted an app that I hadn't heard of before- the Period of Purple Crying App. This is a tool that parents can use to track their baby's crying. Part of learning about purple crying, is that it is a completely normal developmental stage in small infants that will pass with time. If you download and use the app, let me know what you think!

The Period of PURPLE Crying App | The Period of PURPLE Crying program mobile app is intended for parents of newborns who have received the PURPLE program education from a trained educator or medical provider.

The Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor

Please take a minute to complete this survey by the Breastfeeding Center of Ann Arbor, if you have experience with ni**le shields

Please participate in our survey and share, share, share! If you have NOT used a ni**le shield, we want that data too!

Here is a link to the Parent Survey. And here is the link:

Here is a link to the Lactation Helper Survey. And here is the link:
(For this one, we would like any one who helps with breastfeeding to fill it out no matter what your back ground is. IBCLCs, CLCs, Doulas, La Leche League Leaders, Doctors, Midwives, Nurses, we want as much data as possible.)

The research on ni**le shields is limited. The purpose of these surveys is to get a sense of how and why ni**le shields are actually be used by families and how lactation professionals play into this data.

Please share these where ever you can so we can get a large number of responses. This information will be used to help inform us as to the current state or ni**le shield use. The data will be used for future conference presentations, hopefully will be published in a journal, a podcasts, and for training of lactation professionals.

What Women Should Keep In Mind When They're Thinking Of Breast-Feeding

A cool audio piece on NPR today about breastfeeding difficulties. They report that 90% of women have some difficulty with breastfeeding. I would agree! A majority of women say they want to breast-feed their babies. But only a small fraction reach that goal. Why is it so hard? Maybe the secrets of breast-feeding are in the past.
