Bad Breastfeeding Advice we have all been a victim

We have all been a victim of bad breastfeeding advice. Some of us knew we were given bad advice and ignored it politely and others fell into the traps. Remember all your baby needs is you! The warmth of your body, the milk from your breast, and love from your heart. Don’t be pushed or bullied into anything. ALWAYS question anyone dr., nurse, family, or whom ever why they are suggesting that you give your baby anything but your milk for the first 6 months. Dr.’s arn’t always trained in breastfeeding and they are NOT experts in the subject. Same goes for nurses and family members. The experts in breastfeeding are Lactation Specialists(IBCLC). If supplementation is ever suggested you should contact your Lactation consultant pronto!

About Blessed Are The Mothers

My name is Lisa Horstkamp and I am a private practice lactation counselor and a Birth and bereavement Doula. I became a certified doula with stillbirthday as of October 2015. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) with The Healthy Children Project of April 2015. CLC Scope of practice: http://talpp.org/forms/scope%20of%20practice.pdf SBD Doula Principles of Service (Scope) http://www.stillbirthday.com/2011/11/15/principles-of-service/ I'm a southern woman born and bred. I am raising my "Southern Bell" and "bubba" the way I see fit. I started out breastfeeding my oldest but without good support I ended up using formula and not meeting my breastfeeding goal. I breastfed my youngest for 33 months, until he no longer requested, far out reaching my original goal of 6 months. It would not have been possible without the abundant support from my IBCLC and other breastfeeding moms in the support group at our local hospital. I'm on path to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the next few years and looking forward to increasing support for my area.
