Parenting is hard. And the thousands of decisions we’re forced to make everyday can feel daunting. Should I listen to my pediatrician, my mother, this website? When am I going to find time to read this 500 page book on feeding? Will other moms judge me for doing it this way? While we’ve never had access to so much information, it’s never been harder to find the knowledge we need to feel confident in the choices we make as parents. We make it simple. We break down all the information- the science, the trends, the myths- into easy to understand knowledge. The “Cliff’s Notes” to parenting. Because when you remove the doubt, fear, and stress from everyday parenting choices, you create more time for the fulfilling moments. A healthier way to live, eat, and love. This is Meaning Full Living.

Infant Feeding 101: Breaking Down Breastfeeding and Formula 

Hayley gets personal as she shares her own candid experience with breastfeeding and formula, how she decided which was right for her, and the major physical and emotional toll of postpartum. In the second half of the episode, Jess breaks down everything you need to know about feeding your newborn and baby with confidence: the benefits of breastmilk, destigmatizing formula, how to know if your baby’s getting enough, when and how to give a bottle, mastitis, nutrition for mom and baby, increasing your supply, and what to look for when choosing a formula. 

Donor Milk: It’s important to find donated milk from a trusted source as breastmilk sold over the internet is strongly discouraged by the Academy of Breastfeedings 2017 Position Statement because the donor is unknown, the donors health is not screened, and the breastmilk is often not safely handled in the process of sharing. Below are some trusted resources. It is also always advised to ask your healthcare provider (OB-GYN, primary care physician, midwife, and/or certified lactation consultant).

You can also donate your breastmilk for critically ill or premature infants to thrive at Prolacta.

Favorite Bottles: Stay tuned for all our favorite infant feeding products and resources launching on our website early April.
