90 | The Number One Way to Increase Your Milk Supply When Breastfeeding

5/30/2024
Show Notes for Episode 90: The Number One Way to Increase Your Milk Supply When Breastfeeding Today, we’re tackling a topic that I know is on the minds of many breastfeeding mothers: how to increase your milk supply. If you've ever felt concerned about your milk production, you're certainly not alone. I've heard countless tips and tricks over the years about boosting milk supply, and it can be overwhelming to sift through all the advice. Today, we’re going to cut through the noise and focus on the most effective strategies backed by physiology and expert advice. First, we'll dive into the physiology of milk production and the let-down reflex. Understanding these biological processes can help you optimize your body's natural ability to produce milk. Next, we'll explore the infant sucking reflex and its crucial role in stimulating milk production. This will give you insight into how your baby's feeding habits influence your milk supply. The primary concept we'll discuss is the idea of 'empty to increase supply.' This means increasing the frequency of breast stimulation—whether by nursing or pumping—rather than extending the length of each session. It’s about how often, not how long. Additional Ways to Boost Supply: Lastly, I highly recommend talking to an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). They can provide personalized advice and support to help you understand and increase your milk supply effectively, without adding to your stress. We’ll summarize today’s insights and remind you that while breastfeeding can be challenging, the right information and support can make a significant difference. You're doing an amazing job, and sometimes, just a few tweaks can improve your breastfeeding experience. Thank you for joining today. Remember, you're not alone in this journey—we’re here to support you every step of the way. Until next time, take care of yourself and keep nurturing both yourself and your little one.

84 | 3 Reason an Oversupply of Milk is curse and not a blessing

5/9/2024
Introduction to Oversupply: It’s common to stress over every drop of milk you produce. Watching those pumping sessions closely and seeing only a few ounces can be disheartening, especially when it feels like everyone else has a freezer full of milk. You might think having an oversupply would make life easier, but let's unpack why it can actually be quite the opposite. I personally had a significant oversupply, and trust me, it was nothing short of chaotic. It was messy—milk leaked on everything all the time, leading to constant discomfort and a never-ending laundry pile. The Downsides of Having Too Much Milk: Reducing milk supply intentionally can be a delicate and frustrating process. I'll discuss some strategies that might help, but remember, it's often a trial-and-error journey. While it might seem like having an excess of milk would ease all your breastfeeding woes, the reality can be much more complicated. Today's talk is all about shedding light on the less-discussed aspects of having too much milk and offering support and understanding to those who are experiencing these challenges. If you're struggling with oversupply or just curious about the realities behind it, this episode is meant to provide you with insights and hopefully some relief in knowing you're not alone in this.

4/22/2024
Show Notes for Episode 79: Still Looking Pregnant? 10 Things Your Doctor Didn't Tell You About Your Postpartum Belly Hey there, beautiful mamas! Welcome back to the podcast. Today, we're diving into a topic that many of us find ourselves puzzled over after giving birth - why does it look like I'm still pregnant, and why didn't anyone warn me about this? The Great Transition: Pregnancy does a number on our bodies. Hips widen, rib cages shift, organs play musical chairs, and the baby arrives. But contrary to what some of us might hope, our bellies don't just "deflate" overnight. A lot is going on under the surface that keeps that postpartum belly around longer than expected. Personal Insight: I was that mom who stayed active during pregnancy. Walks, core training, weights - you name it. But even with all that effort, my belly didn’t bounce back immediately after birth. And that’s perfectly okay. I am addressing why in this episode of New Mom Naturopath!! We’ll explore these points in depth, backed by recent studies and a bit of motherly wisdom, to give you a comprehensive understanding of what’s happening to your postpartum body and why it's all part of the incredible process of bringing life into the world. Remember, mamas, everybody is unique, and the journey to “recovery” or “normalcy” post-birth is not a race. It’s a deeply personal journey that deserves compassion and understanding, both from the world and ourselves. Ready to dive deeper and embrace your body's journey? Press play, and let’s get into it together. You’re not alone on this journey, mama. References:

4/15/2024
### Show Notes for Episode 77: 5 Breastfeeding Tips When You Want to Give Up Nursing in Early Postpartum Hey there, beautiful moms! Welcome back. Today's episode is close to my heart. We're diving into a topic that I know many of you are navigating right now - breastfeeding. It's a journey that, for many of us, is far more challenging than we ever anticipated. So, if you're in the early stages of postpartum and finding yourself on the brink of giving up nursing, this episode is especially for you. Breastfeeding is not just about nourishment; it's a bond, a journey, and, yes, sometimes a battle. But before you decide it's not for you, let's walk through five tips that might just make the difference. **1. Understanding the Challenges:** First, we'll talk about the common hurdles we face in breastfeeding. From latch issues to supply concerns, understanding these challenges is the first step towards overcoming them. **2. Building a Support System:** You don't have to do this alone. Finding your tribe, whether it's friends, family, or a lactation consultant, can provide not just emotional support but practical advice too. **3. Setting Realistic Expectations:** Let's be real. Breastfeeding can be hard, and it's okay if it doesn't look like the serene images we often see. Setting realistic expectations can alleviate a lot of the pressure we put on ourselves. **4. Self-Care for the Breastfeeding Mom:** Taking care of yourself is not selfish; it's essential. I'll share some self-care tips that helped me keep going, even when it felt like too much. **5. When to Reevaluate:** Finally, we'll discuss how to know if it's time to reevaluate your breastfeeding journey. There's no one-size-fits-all answer here, but there are signs that it might be time to consider alternatives or adjustments. **Closing Thoughts:** Whether you're determined to continue breastfeeding or you're considering other options, remember, you're doing an amazing job. Feeding your baby, in whatever way works best for you and them, is what truly matters. Thanks for tuning in today. I hope these tips offer some comfort and guidance for anyone struggling with breastfeeding in these early days of motherhood. Remember, you're not alone in this journey, and there's no shame in seeking help or deciding to take a different path. Until next time, take good care of yourself. You've got this, momma!
