Cassandra Thompson is the mother to Mari, a mom advocate, and creator of the Unbound Network. Cassandra is here today to share with us her non-medical perspective of ties as a mom who has experiences a lot of unnecessary obstacles to breastfeeding her child.

Cassandra began sharing her journey with her daughter on Instagram just two months ago, but already she's putting into words so many of the struggles parents of children with tongue, lip and buccal ties face.

We explore Mari's issues with ties from birth until her current age of 14 months. And the journey isn't over yet! Cassandra shares the emotional aspect, the practical challenges, the complexity of finding the right treatment, and so much more. Her story is her own, so it may not be what yours is or will be like.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The most common issues with getting ties diagnosed and treated
  • Why bodywork is important
  • What to expect when your baby has ties
  • Tips for navigating medical gaslighting

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....
