Thanks for this Mother Nurture Lactation & Wellness, LLC

I love talking about introducing solids to your baby! I highly recommend the Baby Led Weaning (BLW) method because it has so many benefits and it can be so much easier (no buying or making baby food, no cooking extra/different food, sets them up for successful eating, exploring flavors, and listening to their bodies...the list goes on).

Before starting BLW, it is important that your baby meets these criteria. Breastmilk and/or formula are going to be the main nutritional source for your child until they turn 1, so don't feel like you need to rush this timeline. Every baby reaches these milestones on their own time. If you are in this season, I love The Big Book of Baby-Led Weaning by Aubrey Phelps - it goes over how to do BLW and gives you great recipe ideas. :)

06/03/2022

Thank you for the kind words Wilmington Holistic Dentistry !!! We appreciate it more than you know 😊

Do you suspect that your infant or child has a tongue or lip tie? We recommend Bonded Beginnings, a multidisciplinary group, for a consultation.

"Training"⠀

Night waking is biologically normal. Night weaning does not ensure no wake ups. Sleep training does NOT ensure a good sleeper.⠀

Sleep is a biological function, it cannot be forced. Just as if someone sat you on the toilet and demanded you p*e right then.⠀

"Just give him rice cereal before bed. He's almost 3 month's, he'll be fine."⠀

"Put them in bed, close the door, don't go back in until morning."⠀

"If they are so upset they throw up, go in and change the sheets. Don't make eye contact or speak to them."⠀

"She's getting too used to being comforted every time she wakes."⠀

"Get out of the house when you put him in his crib, this way you won't hear his cries."⠀

"Let them cry, they're just manipulating you."⠀

Complete. And. Utter. BS.⠀

Not to mention, DANGEROUS.⠀

And many women believe that their baby, that only wakes a few times a night for nourishment and/or comfort, has a problem that needs to be solved.⠀

Waking frequently is a protective measure against SIDS, and also helps to maintain breastfeeding. ⠀

It's expected that they need feeds throughout the night. (Have you ever doubled your weight within a few months before? Or had rapid brain development and growth, so much so that you can't even rest?)⠀

It's unrealistic to expect babies to sleep BETTER than adults. ⠀

Why do we need studies, and facts, and statistics to show how it is or is not damaging. How it is or is not ok to hold your baby to sleep, nurse your baby to sleep, rock your baby to sleep.⠀

What happened to following our instincts? What happened to parenting from and following what you feel is right and good in your heart?⠀

If you need to p*e, do you wake? If you need to adjust the covers, do you wake? Do you wake when you're thirsty, had a bad dream, need to roll over?⠀

Let's normalize normal behaviors.⠀

Babies and children don't have sleep problems.⠀

Society has expectation problems.⠀

Needing comfort isn't a problem that needs to be fixed. It's part of being human.

“Don’t worry! Fed is best anyways!” A doctor at the hospital tells a mother who just birthed her baby who won’t latch.

“Don’t worry, they all grow up to eat chicken nuggets anyways!” Laughs the nurse at a babies 3rd well visit, he isn’t gaining weight the way they want.

“Don’t worry! It hurt me to nurse too so I stopped!” Says a woman to her friend over lunch as she watches her cringe in pain.

“Don’t worry! A bottle will help her sleep through the night.” Says a husband to his wife when the alarm goes off to feed.

“Don’t worry! He’ll never remember you stopped!” Says a coworker to his friend who’s freezer supply is dwindling and she’s struggling to get more then an ounce.

Don’t worry they all said. Fed is best anyways.

She cried for help.
She sobbed in that office.
She called her friend exhausted.
She went to anyone she could.
She begged. She pleaded.

But fed is best anyways.

A phrase we started to help moms know it’s okay if it just simply “doesn’t work out”
Is crippling thousands of woman.

Choosing formula over breastfeeding is a choice. Yet the mothers choosing breast are having that choice ripped from them - before they ever stood a chance.

So I encourage you, next time a mom is begging for support, don’t turn to her and say “Well fed is best anyways!”

Ask her what you can do.
Help her read the books.
Help her search on google.
Help her find an IBCLC.
Help her get the help she needs.

The western world has the lowest and shortest breastfeeding terms globally. I’ll let you do the math on why you think that is.

If you are a mother who struggled and had your journey end before you were ready, I stand with you. My heart hurts for you.
Just know there are woman like me, doing everything we can to make sure the next generation doesn’t have to beg and plead for the help they need.

Easy change to make everyone feel welcome❤️

03/14/2022

Can’t say enough about the ❤️

We are a multidisciplinary clinic that diagnose and treats tethered oral tissues (lip and tongue-ties). We believe that breastfeeding is super important for the development of the baby. Our IBCLC,Natalie evaluates the latch; Dr. Bunge (chiropractor) checks for fascia restrictions and works on babies tender areas. Brittany, our Sp*ech Language Pathologist work on oral-motor sensory and sucking training and Dr. Cortez, performs a frenectomy if there is an anatomical restriction. That way we provide a comprehensive approach to the mom & baby for the best result.
