Episode 61: Breastfeeding Multiples with Lindsay Castiglione BS, IBCLC

 

In today's episode we have Lindsay Castiglione sharing her incredible perspective & knowledge with us about breastfeeding multiples. Although there has been great growth toward society supporting & normalizing breastfeeding, there is still a huge need for resources in the multiples community.

There are a few areas of early lactation that are vital to success with multiples, but these areas are not often covered in-depth during traditional prenatal breastfeeding classes. We discuss how so many multiples born preterm or premature, so we need a solid focus on bringing in a milk supply even if our babies are not strong, effective nursers. Often this means completely bringing in a supply with a hospital grade pump, or if babies are older, letting them practice but immediately following with a short pumping session to stimulate supply.

We talk about preterm babies (with 50% of twins born between 35-37w, triplets and even earlier) and the common issues like low blood...

Episode 60: How Nutrition Impacts Postpartum & Lactation Hormones with Alison Boden, RD

diet hormones nutrition Nov 12, 2021
 

Today we're talking to Alison Boden about all things postpartum nutrition. What can you eat?? What should you avoid?? There are SO many misconceptions about diet in the postpartum period, and especially lactation. We usually hear a lot about diet during pregnancy, but there's more to postpartum nutrition than weight loss and food intolerances.

Pregnancy, birth, and lactation can deplete us of nutrients, so it's our jobs to re-nourish ourselves to replace what's been lost. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to hormone changes and mood disorders. But a lot of other things go under the radar like night sweats, inability to handle stress, and much much more!

Alison Boden is a registered dietitian specializing in women's health. She is the founder of Motherwell Nutrition (formerly Nourishing Radiance)--where she helps moms replenish their bodies, balance hormones and feel good again after kids. Also a mom to two young boys, she knows that feeding yourself well can be difficult after...

Episode 52: Mom Journey - Breastmilk Donor to Breastmilk Recipient

 

On this episode, we invited Keira Chojnacki to share her breastfeeding journey with her four kiddos. She has been a breastmilk donor, and also a milk donation recipient. Her journey is very unique and diverse.

Keira became a mom at 20 years old. Right after her first baby was born, the first latch was magical. She had a fairly easy breastfeeding journey with her son and was able to donate 400oz of milk when he son was just 3-4 months old.

When her son was 1 year old, she decided to get a breast reduction and continued to give her son the stored breastmilk she had saved up after that. Two years later, Keira gave birth to her second son who ended up in the NICU for an entire month. She started out exclusively pumping and was able to make enough milk for him. She ultimately weaned at 3 months though because it was too difficult to maintain pumping with her two children and everything she had going on in her life.

With her daughter, Keira really wanted to try breastfeeding again....
