Breastfeeding from an OB's Perspective

4/1/2021
This week the doctor is in the house! Dr. Matthew Saidel is here to tell us all the things we should be asking about breastfeeding well before the baby comes. Most moms forget to talk to their OB’s about breastfeeding and it’s not that surprising if you think about it. Being pregnant takes up a lot of mental space and it’s hard to get focused on anything that comes after labor and delivery. But here at Nest Collaborative, we are huge advocates of prenatal planning for breastfeeding because...

Pumping and Transitioning Back to Work

3/25/2021
The first few weeks with a new baby are so precious - and also SO DARN HARD. For mom, it’s a time of healing as well as a whole new beginning. Life becomes about getting to know rhythms, establishing routines, and building a relationship with someone who has lived inside of you for a whole nine months. The “fourth trimester”, as we call it, is one of extremes - complete exhaustion matched only by utter adoration for this new tiny human being that has now completely taken over your life. But...

Let's Talk About Formula

3/18/2021
What's with mom guilt, anyway? As women, we are made to think that we should have this mothering stuff down to a science and that it should all come naturally. This holds especially true with breastfeeding. There are so many things that can go wrong and yet we are expected to know what we are doing even if we’ve never done it before. Hence the guilt, right? According to the CDC, as many as four out of five moms start out breastfeeding, but only half are breastfeeding by six months of age...

The Unique Challenges of Breastfeeding in the Military

3/11/2021
As we all know, being a new mom is tough. There are no two ways about it. Trying to figure out how to care for a newborn or multiple babies while staying sane, semi-clean, and at least slightly human is something almost all of us have had to grapple with. But for a certain very special group of women, trying to figure out the nuances of motherhood has its own unique set of challenges. So my question for today is: How do you balance the active-duty of being a new mom when you’re literally on...

Innovations in Breastfeeding

3/4/2021
Hello Mommas and Mommas-To-Be! This week on the podcast we’re talking about what we like to call “Breastfeeding 2.0”. Have you ever wondered why motherhood in general and breastfeeding, in particular, attracts so many wives’ tales and generational remedies? From cabbage leaves to drinking beer, many of the “helpful hints” we get for breastfeeding is actually age-old advice passed down through the decades. In a world that is completely dictated by technology, this seems a bit at odds with...

Tongue-Tie and Other Common Breastfeeding Roadblocks

2/25/2021
One of the most common misconceptions we hear at Nest Collaborative is how natural and effortless the feeding bond between mama and baby is supposed to be. But more often than not, it simply isn’t the case. Here we are at the beginning stages of breastfeeding - awkwardly fumbling through, trying to figure it all out. But after a few days and weeks, it should get better right? In theory, yes. But what if it doesn’t? You may have heard the term “tongue-tie”, which seems to be the phrase du...

Everything You Need To Know About The Latch and the Hold

2/4/2021
Our topic for this week is something that’s absolutely crucial to successful breastfeeding, yet completely mystifying to most new moms. Today we’re talking about the latch and the hold - two terms that you might not have heard of until just recently, if at all. These actions are the ties that bind momma and baby from day one. So how can something so simple and natural be so complicated at the same time? When you feed your baby for the first time, two things will effectively make things...

Breastfeeding Economics: Milk Supply and Demand

1/28/2021
This week we’re diving into the economics of breastfeeding, a little something we like to call supply and demand. What most moms don’t know when they start their breastfeeding journey is that their bodies are already prepared to produce and supply enough breastmilk to meet their baby’s every nutritional need for the first several months of his or her life. It’s just one of the things that makes motherhood so completely awe-inspiring. Of course, while that ability is deeply ingrained in our...
